It’s that time again. Time to usher in a new calendar year…which really doesn’t mean all that much in a literal sense when you think about it. January 1, 2011 is just another day. Fom a figurative sense though, the transition from one year to the next provides all of us with an opportunity to try and make a fresh start or do things differently.
Gotta be honest, I’ve never been big on New Year’s resolutions. That being said I have made them plenty of times in the past. Last year for example I set out to do what countless people do…go to the gym and get healthy.
I made it through about 8 months – going regularly for maybe 4 of those. We’ll call it a wash. I’ve seen worse results but I could have certainly done better. In the end the gym just wasn’t the place for me. I’ll stick with lifting a few weights at home and playing tennis. That’s gonna have to be good enough.
But I digress. 2010’s successor is knocking on the door and it’s time to make (or not make) those resolutions once again. Jury is still out, here…I’ll let ya know if I think of something profound.
I will be doing this much in the coming year – enjoying life to its fullest. Every day we get is a gift and so certainly is every year, for that matter. Happy New Year everyone. Make the most of it. All the best to you and yours for a happy and healthy 2011.
