There are so many blogs out there.

I catch myself thinking “someone else will write that” or “someone else will say that.” And I’m terrified of failure. “What if nobody cares?”

“Write what scares you.” –Sarah Jio

It’s important to be vulnerable, and write when I’m scared…So I will try.

Windmill Ways will have stories from my life and lessons I’ve learned, along with movie reviews because I watch a lot of movies and I’d like to make it useful… I don’t know if my experiences can actually help anyone. But if I can help just one person laugh, or smile, or not make the same mistakes I did, then it’s all worth it.

My desire is to learn to live more efficiently: learn from other people’s mistakes.

What do I mean by that?

One of the best most overlooked time savers we could ever hope for in this life, is the ability to analyze another life, find a cause and effect, and apply this knowledge to our own lives.

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” –Albert Einstein

I’ve made YEARS of mistakes already, and I’m adding more daily. So…I’m pretty nervous. But ready to do this.

Are you with me?
