I guess that I would normally start off an introduction by saying good morning or good afternoon, but if you are reading this I have no way of knowing which of those it is; so I will just say hello. My name is Brian McClellan and this is DividuusOne. Let me tell you a bit about myself and then we can introduce what DividuusOne is and what you can expect here at the blog.
As mentioned, my name is Brian McClellan; at the time of this introduction I am 37 years old; I have been married to my best friend, Jillian, for over five years now; and we have a two year old son named Brooks.
We live here in Southern California in my grandparents former home. It was always a dream of mine to live in the neighborhood I grew up in and realizing that dream in a home I spent so much of my childhood in is more than I could have ever hoped for.
In addition to being a husband, a father and a home owner, I am also a student and have a full time job in the healthcare industry. I am also on a life long weight loss journey that I got particularly serious about just over five years ago. During that period of time I lost over 170 pounds as I went from 361 pounds to 189. Since then I have struggled with the maintenance more than I did with the weight loss so now I have some more to lose before maintaining once again.
Enough about me personally, I’d like to now tell you about what DividuusOne is going to become and how it all began.
DividuusOne is a dream that started out over ten years ago. I was in a very different place in my life and knew that I needed to set some goals and start working towards them if I was going to get out of the rut that I was in. In that moment I decided to launch a blog that would encapsulate all aspects of my life and follow me on a journey of self improvement. While the goal of starting a blog was a complete and utter failure, despite hundreds of attempts, I did accomplish a lot of my other goals. I got married, I bought a house, I started a family, I lost the weight, I went back to school and I got promoted at work.
In spite of all those other goals being realized, I have kept coming back to the blog because I feel like it is the missing piece in my life. I want to build something that allows me to express myself in a way that I couldn’t ten years ago when I was a different person while simultaneously improving upon my organizational and productivity skills as well as becoming the person I have always wanted to be including being the best husband and father I can be.
That is what DividuusOne is going to be. It’s a culmination of every goal that I have had over the last ten years wrapped up within one project. This certainly isn’t my first attempt at doing something like this and it may not be the last (I hope it is and that I succeed), but I know that I need to do this to feel like my journey is complete.
I would like to thank you for coming by and learning a little bit more about me and what DividuusOne is going to be. I hope that you will stick around to see what this becomes.
