In terms of health. In terms of attitude, I want to be more like him now. Too often, I substitute worry and feeling for real best effort, and that causes me to be both stressed and much less effective.
I had my daughter pretty late in life (age 38), so I’m really trying to do all I can to stay alive and healthy for as long as I can.
Let’s just say I can identify with a certain replicant.
Most New Year’s resolutions are about things we will do, things we will ask of ourselves.
But I am tired of pouring from an empty pitcher.
My utter neglect of good and proper self care has negatively impacted me, my wife, and even my daughter, and it is time to fix that.
This is the year. This is the time.
I’ve been doing a good bit of research into self care, and I’ve come up with some plans for different areas of my life.
I’ll be writing an ongoing series about my efforts this year.
But for now, this is my public declaration. I will take better care of myself, starting now.
