Shake Your Groove Thang...

So I may be (finally...delightfully...wonderfully...) back in my groove. After kicking off the new year in Maui, settling into - and, I think, quite possibly loving - my new job, I'm good. Like really good. Like feeling like I can do just about anything good (with the exception of running a full marathon...who needs to run more than 2 hours, I ask you?).

What in the world am I going to do with this new found energy? It feels like years since I've had this kind of get-up-and-go, both physically and mentally. I can only laugh as the voice in my head is taunting me with whispers about being in my prime. I laugh because that's exactly how I feel. And now that I have just, serendipitously, finished Andre Agassi's autobiography, Open, I'm feeling dangerously inspired. If you haven't read it yet, do.

What an amazing story and an incredible life he's led. The most inspiring part, I feel, comes toward the end of his tennis career with the beginning of his philanthropic work. I was captivated by his words but truly moved by his actions. All I want to do now is use this energy of mine, this motivation I have, and channel it into something important. If that's not the markings of a great book, then I don't know what is.
