I first started A Life You Want back in 2012. At that time it was a way to reach out and help others take charge of their lives. I had been struggling in my own life, and I had learned a lot through my efforts to turn things around. I wanted to help others do the same.
The posts that you’ve seen up to this point are from the first year of that original blog. It is these posts that were revised and compiled into books. Following that first year I ventured into a more personal approach, though I ultimately decided to separate that from A Life You Want, and I created A Life I Want, which tracks my own life and changes. A Life You Want then faded away, lost amidst the busy-ness of my personal life.
Following these changes, the original blog was lost, but the desire to help others remained. I knew I had insight I could share with others who were struggling as I had. And, while I am still working on getting my own life where I want it to be, I knew I had something to say, and tools and resources to offer. And so A Life You Want was reborn.
I felt it important to share the original posts, as they had useful information that could get readers started on their journeys. And, as I’ve typed up these posts again to share, I’ve found they’ve helped me, too! Looking back at words I had written, reminding myself of advice and suggestions and resources I had shared, has awakened a new motivation to succeed. I have a long way to go in my own journey, even as I offer guidance to others.
But a year’s worth of posts is just a beginning. I am now creating a website beyond the blog, with tools and resources and additional information and support. This website will be found at www.ALifeYouWant.com, and it launches May 1, 2018.
I hope you will join me on this journey. It has been a fulfilling, amazing ride thus far, and I know the future is even brighter. So read through the original posts. Then visit http://www.ALifeYouWant.com on May 1, and we can take on the future together. It’s time to take charge of our lives!
