resolve

3 Jan

i generally do not make new years resolutions. maybe because it is too touted by the media as the thing to do. and it is evidenced by the overwhelming number of people at the gym. and the sales on crummy processed frozen meals. and offers for reduced prices on all the things that might just possibly improve your life. it’s all too much for me. too contrived. and commercialized. yet I still like to believe that we get a chance to start over. or at a minimum attempt to improve our lives in one way or another. perhaps not a clean slate but one where the chalk marks have been brushed aside. i could not have asked for a more magical 2011. sure there were difficulties. trials. tribulations. things that I wish had gone differently. or that I had reacted to differently. but all in all when I add up the sum total we definitely came out on top. three incredible, awe inspiring, healthy, adorable, fun, and loving children. a strong and loving relationship. our health. financial stability. and happiness. there was not a single day in the past year where I doubted the love within my family. so a new year brings with it the offer of a change. an opportunity. a chance to make things a little better. and I intend to embrace that chance. and do whatever I can to ensure our continued path of happiness and good fortune. by laughing more. and smiling more. and doing my best to live in the moment. a happy new year indeed.
