My Life is My Story

Brian Hogan

As a writer, a blogger, I live life exposed; so I don’t have the luxury of regretting any of my choices.  Hopefully, in the din of my dramas and delusions, I tell myself, I can transform my latest blunder into a blog post; my latest lapse in judgement into lasting impact for someone else.  So, instead of regretting when things go bad, or lamenting when I finish last, I just write it down. 

Since Half Year’s Day just happened (July 1, Half Year’s Eve being June 30th) I have been revisiting some rusted old resolutions I’d made six months ago and been polishing them up this week.  I haven’t had a sip of soda, and I’ve actually been eating cut up fruit for snacks…yes, I mean fresh organic fruit that I cut up myself. Yes, really!  July is the new January so I’m posting this small triumph here in the hopes that writing it down, and exposing it here makes me less prone to backslide into fatty late night snacks.  I’m using my blog as a self-help tool so no offense, but I guess if you’re reading this, I’m kinda using you too.  Thanks for your help!  

Now when I screw up royally I don’t get all worked up about it. I just think, damn, this is gonna make one hell of a good story.
