Boomer’s Ramblings “Happy New Year?”

Well, the new year is upon us and I believe there are some questions that bare asking.

    The first question you should ask yourself: Where am I going? This should be about the goals you have set for yourself, and how you plan on meeting these goals. I am not talking about that corny New Year’s resolution. I mean the serious goals. If you are completely happy with the place you are in, and feel there is no need for improvement. Then by all means skip this one. That would beg the question from me: Are you really happy, or just too apathetic to make the changes necessary?

The second question you should ask yourself: How did I get here? Obviously this is not about your creation. If you are going to re-invent yourself. (question 1). You need to know where you have been. Know the path you took, if it was the right one. Did you take some short-cuts along the way. If you veered off the right path, you need to look back and figure out when that was. Definitely know the mistakes you have made, and how to avoid, actually correct,  them.

The third and probably the most important question you need to ask yourself: How serious am I? You can spend all day, all week maybe even a month on questions 1 and 2. It will do you no good if you are not serious about making the proper changes. Take it from a professional procrastinator. I am on the right path, it is however, a path I should have traveled down long ago. I should be finished with this path and on to the main road by now. If I had gone through with every whim I have started. I would be the greatest writer of fiction and non-fiction novels. Also I would be the one in the best of shape. My radio show would be the most popular of all the talk shows. Oh yeah, I would also be fluent in Italian, Spanish and A.S.L. (American sign language).

In conclusion: as the old adage goes…never put off ’til tomorrow what you can do today. Pretty soon, tomorrow becomes yesterday, and yesterday is too late to get anything accomplished.

About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
