Truly, A New Direction

When I started this blog, I wanted to write because I was so interested in how "Web 2.0" was changing how we interact, and I was excited to think that this could generate some extra income (still waiting on that income). As I wrote, I tried to find my voice and/or angle from which to create a niche. As I took this journey, I started to feel comforted reading other blogs and finding out that others dealt with the same situations daily. Soon I found out that writing was very therapeutic, and that it made things better by venting about them.

I began looking for a light at the end of the tunnel. I was very frustrated as a community pharmacist, and was hoping to find others that had some real insight. I will say that I have found some with insight, some with a lot of rage, and some with insight mixed with a blind loyalty to our profession. That being said, I feel that being involved in blogging helped a lot, but most of my anger truly subsided when I got a job in a hospital. A better fit for me.

I feel like I should apologize, though. There was a lot of bitterness in my early posts, and still some today. I was so eager to blast people for their selfishness and ignorance, that I lost sight of any humility or gratefulness. I have been truly blessed, and I am truly grateful. I have a wife who is pregnant with our first child, a home that I enjoy being at, and a job (not to mention a good one).

I'm saying this because I feel called to go down a different path. One that is driven by my faith in Jesus Christ. I plan to continue blogging, and to continue blogging about pharmacy, but in a different light. However, I cannot do this and be credible to this purpose without addressing the previous posts. If I didn't address the other posts, I would be a hypocrite, instead of one who is trying to be changed.

I feel that it is appropriate to tell you that I could not have this peace without answered prayers from the Lord. He helped me get out of retail, He got me into a less tumultuous situation, and He guides me today. I thank Him for all I have and can give, and I hope (and pray) that you will come to know Him as well!
