In The Happiness Project, Gretchen Rubin mentions how her research "revealed that challenge and novelty are key elements to happiness." Perhaps that is why I'm a chronic beginner. I particularly enjoy novelty. Anyone following me from my old blog would know that I'm here to start anew. It may seem like this is "just another one" of the multiple things I like to start, but as long as I don't suffer through too many problems with Blogger, I hope to make this my new home. And hopefully, in this new home, I'll finally begin to truly understand.
Writing about ourselves doesn't mean we're self-involved. We have to start with ourselves before we can reach beyond ourselves. And whatever our intention, the way we see and write about the world always reveals who we are. - Susan G. Woolbridge
