Day Two

2013!! It’s the start of a new year and I have to admit that for perhaps the first time in what seems like an eternity, I’m genuinely intrigued by the potential of what lies ahead. Last year this time I wrote about my desire to stick to one particular route in terms of my blog and online identity; to this end, I was able to decide on aldanzopratt.com as my permanent online home and in that commitment focused in on

Change

I weighed myself this morning… As I stood on that scale and realized that I had gained another 5 pounds, and that now I was a healthy 215 pounds, I couldn’t help but think it was finally time. So, I decided to finally cut my hair. I cut my hair, and it felt awesome, because for the the first time in too many years, I didn’t feel like I needed it. It had been so long since I’d worn a

Never Too Busy – Day 31

Day Thirty-One: Create a list of 31 things you’re grateful for. God. Life, Health and Strength… Food, Clothing, and Shelter. – Wait, is that cheating? Peter Earl – At the end of the day, there are very few opinions that matter to me. And, his is the most important. We’re nothing alike, but then, we’re everything alike. My Mom – She’s been my best friend since I was a kid. She knows me better than anyone else in the world,
