The Problem with Resolutions

The problem with making resolutions is the lack of resolution -- the firm decision to do or not to do something. I'm not a huge resolutions person, but I do have one or two that I do follow through on, and that includes training. It seems I have no lack of motivation in that area. I'm still on the fence in other areas of my life. The older I get, the more I only pick goals that I'm extremely excited about. Today I'm just glad my 70-year old body can still move and hopefully run another marathon next month and maybe one or two more after that. In the end, I don't want to reach the end of my life and regret the risks I didn't take or the relationships I was too afraid to have or the decisions to change something in my life that I waited too long to make. A new year is a reminder to make the most of each and every day. The bottom line is that it's never too late for us to change if we really want to and become the person we want to be. Please please remember that.
