2013 Resolutions
« on: January 01, 2013, 11:33:32 AM »
Mine is

Be a great husband and father. I want to help that more by getting my family back home to NJ for good. It's where I've been wanting to be since Emily was born and I'm at my boiling point living where we are. No family here and very few friends. Everyone....our family is in NJ. My daughter is 5 1/2 years old and her cousins are 5 and 2.....they need to grow up with one another, not 2500 miles apart. I'm going to do what I can to get us out of here and back where we belong

Feel free to share your resolutions.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!  :cham:

I wish you the best of luck getting back to NJ.


I personally don't make resolutions, I just end up breaking them.  However, after reading yours about being .  better father, now that's one I can do!


Happy New Year, Pat.

That and being the husband you can be too.  Doing both usually means a happy life.

I was asked this on New Year's morning and all I recall saying in my drunken stupor was, "Continue to be awesome".

I think that's pretty fitting.

I don't make resolutions because then it feels like a diet...it's not a behavior change, it's a temporary choice we'll TRY to do.  Personal choice, of course.

Hi Pat,

Thanks for sharing and all the best in your endeavours to relocate.

Further to Keeted's "continue to be awesome"

I'd like to add "quit settling for mediocrity" do everything like a BAWS

Mine is to reconnect to my body, I have started by having longer baths and massaging my muscles and fully understanding how I have let myself go.  By the end of the year I hope to be back into my old hobbies again.

Mine is very similar. Not sure how many races I will do but I'd like the running to be fun again.  Lately it has been a real chore.  part of it is the cold weather and it's dark when I run.  Part is I need to lose some weight.
The church thing is interesting.  Haven't been into it at all recently and my kids are going to CCD. We are doing a family prep deal where we all go once a month.  Kids have their own class and the adults have their own then we get together for a family project.  This last week I heard parents discussing how much they get out of mass and how powerful and fulfilling it is to them.  I don't recall it ever being that for me so I must be doing something wrong!  So I'll try and go more.

Pat you sure you want to come back here? :-)

I said I was finally going to quit smoking. Like an A$$hole.. I haven't even started on quitting yet. I turn 41 in a few days. I was watching "Biggest Loser" last night with the wife. I got thinking to myself, after watching all these people bettering themselves. "All I have to do is stop smoking". I know I can, I just have to do it.. Maybe now is the time.

Been there. I quit 16 years ago. After quitting so many times I can't count, I found that prior to that I was quitting for other people or other people's reasons. When I finally quit for my reasons, for me, and because of me, I was able to kick it. My desire had to be there, but the nicoderm patch helped curb the cravings so they weren't so bad. I started like the package said with the highest dose patch and worked my way down. I didn't finish the regimen of patches, because I reached a point where I didn't need them and stopped buying them.

Anyway, you have the right idea and can do it. Do it because you want to better yourself. Not because someone else thinks you should better yourself, but because you do. You can do it, I know you can.
