Happy 2012! I'm not one to make New Year's resolutions. I think they're sort of silly. I get that it's a new year so you're making a new start but why can't you decide to make a change any day of the year? Why does it have to be January first? And so many people make their resolutions and by a week or a month they've already forgotten or lost their resolve or what have you. But if it works for you go for it.
I do, however, like the idea of a fresh start. 2011 was not the best year. I describe the past 4 months as "the perfect s#*t storm." Many of the factors - teaching a new grade, losing Murray, having pneumonia - were out of my control. How I dealt with them - skipping workouts, not eating right, withdrawing from friends - could have been better.
I do hope and pray that 2012 will be a better year. I can't change what kind of hand I'm dealt in life. What I can change, however, is how I react to it and not lose sight of my own health and well-being in the process. Does that sound like a New Year's resolution? Damn. I guess I may have just made one after all.
Happy New Year!
|Brian, Andrew, and Jaime at midnight - wahoo!|
What's your take on New Year's resolutions? Did you make one this year?
