stating the obvious

So clearly I've been off line for a little while.

I wish I had some incredible and insightful reason for it, but the truth be told, I haven't written anything in over three months.  I'm pretty sure this is my longest break from writing since I rediscovered my love of writing back in 2006.

I could go into so long rambling reasons for why I've been off line.  But I won't bore you with the reality of my life.

I have been filling my time with dancing... which is odd since the last time I danced in public I was ushered off the dance floor by host of the party.  He was afraid I would crush his grandmother, rightly so.

I've been taking classes and every time the instructor does something, I think, "There's no way I will EVER be any to do anything remotely close to that." Then I watch her do it two more times.  My eyes scan the rest of the class and a few people can do it with some form of success, most can't.

Then I try.

Crap, I can do it.  Just a little bit.  Just enough to let me know it's possible and it's really hard.

Same thing with writing, or getting back into writing.

It's hard, (See the title of this blog post) but it's not impossible.

I've seen my friends victories.  I know it's an achievable task.

I just need to get back into it.

And I will.
But first, I need to practice dancing for a competition.  No joke.

2012 is all about getting over my fears.

2013 will be about victories, no matter how small or humiliating.
