New Year's Resolutions
I never do this. Never actually make a list. I may think about a lot of things that I would like to change for the new year. In the past, some of those changes may have occured. Others didn't. But this year, What the Hell! Here goes! 1. Be a better husband She knows what a piece of crap I can be at times. 2. Be a better father Room for some improvement there too. 3. Stop a couple of bad habits Not going to get specific here, but I know what they are. 4. Ride More And safely , too, I might add. 5. Remember to stop and smell the roses Way too easy to get bogged down with worries about responsibilities. It doesn't take that long to take a small break and look around a bit. 6. Take good care of Max He has taken pretty good care of me. 7. Listen to people People feel better about themselves when they know someone is actually hearing them. 8. The Dalai Lama said: If you want other people to be happy; practice compassion. If you want to be happy; practice compassion. 9. Did I say Ride More? If I did, sorry, but it deserves mentioning twice. It makes me feel alive and I am convinced that it helps make me a better person. So there!
