I finally decided to join the blogosphere after much deliberation. After all, there are countless blogs, with innumerable voices and opinions; and did I have the time or dedication to start a blog? After the 2012 elections, I decided that I could no longer simply stand on the sidelines, but needed to get more involved. This is the first step….
…Well, that was the first step. I came to realize that no matter how much I tried to engage in the process with others of a differing political view, no amount of logic could dissuade another from an emotionally held belief, and I had become burnt out on the process (I guess I didn’t have the stamina to keep up the good fight). Simply put, one must experience the truth for him or herself; no amount of debate will change that.
So after a log absence, I decided to relaunch the blog, but not for political commentary. Rather I imagine this new iteration to be more of a lifestyle blog (like there aren’t enough of those already) focusing more on my journey into creating a better me…through fitness, food, and a more positive general outlook on life.
I named this blog Animus Turbare as a reflection of my sometimes muddled thought process – it usually takes me a little time to work through all of the facts and commentary on a particular issue in order to come to a final conclusion (plus things just sound cooler in Latin). I invite the reader to share in this process by frequent and generous commenting. Please note that the opinions in the articles posted on this blog are mine, and mine alone.
