Well, it’s one day into the New Year and I’m thinking of a resolution. I try every year to make one and stick to it, but I’m not always successful. So here I am again, scratching my head wondering what the heck I’m going to do this year.
Then, it came to me as Liam and I were sitting on the couch watching TV. A weight loss commercial came on and Liam turned to me, looked up at me, then pushed his index finger into my stomach. As his little finger disappeared into my jelly belly he said, “You know what Dad, you need to lose some weight…a lot of weight.” I laughed, but of course I started taking inventory of my body, and “yes” I need to lose weight. I haven’t dieted or worked out in well over three years, and it has finally caught up to me.
As funny as Liam’s comment was, it really struck a chord in me. Not only do I want to be healthy for myself, but more importantly for my kids. I’m so blessed to have such an amazing family–I want to be there for graduations. weddings, and grandchildren.
I know my resolution sounds dramatic, but when I Iook at my little brood and gorgeous wife, they’re all I have…and all I need. So this resolution is a reflection of my charmed and beautiful life.
2013 is going to be quite the SCENE.
I hope you all had a wonderful New Year’s and I may all your dreams and wishes come true this next year.
What is your resolution for the new year?
