To be perfectly honest, I’ve wanted to start a blog for quite some time now. I love to write, and I love to share my thoughts, photographs, videos and whatever else I can share in order for people to experience the things I’m lucky enough to experience. The only thing stopping me has been writer’s block regarding the title of a blog. It’s a big deal. That name sticks with you for the entirety of your blogs lifetime. After weeks off mulling over ideas in my head (that were all far too cheesy and predictable), I finally just decided to get back to my roots and to one of the writers who helped establish my love for writing and for the outdoors, Henry David Thoreau. He said, in his book “Walden”:
“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived…”
Now if that doesn’t make you want to jump up and grab your pack and see what’s out there before it’s too late, I don’t know what will. So I hope you enjoy the blog “Living Deliberately” and maybe it will serve as a motivator for you, as Mr. Thoreau did for me.
