I do better in odd years

My only resolution for 2013 is to accept the things that I am in control of and learn to let go and love myself.

  • I know I will not be running a marathon in 2013, but why not eat right, run more and race a 5K?
  • I know I will not be running an Ironman in 2013, but why not a Sprint?
  • I know I will not lose 170 pounds in 2013, but with hard work, why not 130?
  • I know I will not become father of the year in 2013, but why not a better father?
  • I know I will not save $5000 (cash liquidity) in 2013, but why not work hard, pinch pennies and save $1000?
  • I know I will not become the husband of Amanda’s dreams in 2013, but why not work to capture that romance and amazement we shared when we dated and be the real husband Amanda wants?
  • I know I will not become an executive in 2013, but why not get back to school and work at it?
  • I know I will not hike the 10 highest points in the West, but why not get at least 2, and share them with someone special?
  • I know I will not finish writing a novel, become a painter or photographer in 2013, but why not practice, practice and practice and feel good about what I have done?
  • I know I will not always be there for everyone who needs me in 2013, but why not try?  Starting with being there for myself?

I have a tendency to put too much on my plate, but 2013 will be all about putting me first (I have to, and I hope it does not sound selfish – but all other things will fail if I don’t), family and health.

 May the Goddess bless you and here is to hoping your 2013 is full of success, health and the love of friends and family.
