Welcome to striving cynic.
I like to think the title of the blog says it all…I think of myself as a cynic, but I’m still looking to do more with my life. As a cynic, the thought of trying something new or different often leads to immediate doubts and excuses. Sometimes they’re enough to stop me in my tracks. Sometimes, the doubts and excuses just force me to think things out more carefully…and sometimes I just plunge ahead without paying attention to them at all (buying a domain name…).
So, what am I striving for? Like everyone else, the elusive “balance” (whether it’s really attainable is another thing). More specifically, like a lot of women, I’m interested in looking after my health and my shape, so I try to exercise and eat well. I want to read more and pick up new skills (piano lessons). I would like to be more engaged with certain aspects of my life. In some areas (like exercise), I’m pretty motivated…in others…well, I’m on year 2 or 3 of meaning to do something.
[Confession, this is version 2 of my "about" page. The first one went up in Dec. 2010, but as I've been blogging, I realized I wanted to make some changes on this page. I think my first post will also tell you more about who I am. Also, while I'm confessing, I use the name Zo when commenting on other blogs, but that isn't actually my name. I feel a little bad about this, but while I'm getting my feet wet, I kind of prefer it.]
I would say this blog might touch on healthy living topics, but for now, a lot of it is just about getting through life with a mixture of aspirations and cynicism, and always a sense of humor! Maybe I’ll even achieve something!
Anyway, I’m glad you stopped by and hope you’ll consider stopping by again!
