Street Saint is back!

Hello all!

After a long absence, I have decided to go in a different direction with the blog.  Don’t worry!  I will still be posting words of inspiration and motivation; however, it was too much for me to turn out a new article every week.  Instead, I’ve decided to put myself on display in a way.  From now on, I will be taking on a challenge and posting my progress.  It will be a way to see a real-world example of facing one’s fears and attempting to better oneself.

The way it will work is, I will post my current goal here in this space and describe the stipulations.  If you have questions, comments, or words of advice, I would be more than thrilled for you to leave me a comment on this post.

CURRENT GOAL:
Find a Life Partner

TIME FRAME:
200 Days

This goal may seem like a long shot: “Get married in 200 days?”  However, it is necessary to explain.  I picked the wording I did for a specific reason.  I don’t mean life partner as in spouse, but more literally, as in “partner in life.”  I am over twenty years old and I have not yet been in a serious relationship.  This is a fact that has bothered me for much of my life (not the being over 20 part, naturally).  It is bold of me to admit this, yet I feel a need to be honest with my readers if I am going to take the blog in the direction I am taking it.

I feel comfortable choosing this goal because it is one which many people share.  There are many like me who have not been in relationships and seek to be, but there are also many who have been, yet seek that bond once more.  My goal is to share in the struggle and attempt to learn something from it.  Perhaps I may give some advice which can spur a reader to find just what he/she is after.  That in itself would be like a success for me.  In that sense, please keep me updated on your own goals and accomplishments!  I would love to hear about them!  Please post comments and/or email me.

To provide some more background, I am choosing this goal first because is has proven to be the most difficult challenge I have faced in my life.  That may seem like an exaggeration, but it is certainly the truth.  No other goal I have set for myself has given me more anxiety or stress.  And no other goal has caused me the same amount of pain with failure. As you may know from reading previous posts, I am what one may consider a “nice guy.”  For more on the subject of nice guys, you may want to start here.

I am now a senior at my college and I’ve decided to finalize this struggle of mine.  I will take the next 200 days (number of days until my graduation) to see if I can find a “life partner.”  That doesn’t have to be a romantic partner either.  I have decided to define “life partner” as one who I can be very close to and be a confidant.  I am looking for someone who not only brings me a sense of self-fulfillment, but one to whom I can also be a source of joy and inspiration.

I understand that I may not have explained myself to the best of my ability, so if you have a question, please let me know.  I would be more than happy to revise this post to be more clear.

Wish me luck!
