It’s the beginning of a new year; a chance to start fresh. All of the bad habits from last year can stay in the past. Whatever. There’s actually only been one year in my entire life that I actually followed through with all of my resolutions. My friend and I set some very specific, achievable goals and held each other accountable for them. At first I wasn’t even going to bother with any, I usually don’t, but as I thought about what I would want to achieve this year, I managed to come up with a few that I could deal with. So here they are, in no particulat order:

  1. Develop a thicker skin – I resolve not to let people get to me and make my life miserable, even (especially) the stupid people.
  2. 100 pushups – My wife and I have tried this program a couple of times, but some thing kills our momentum and we stop. Not this time, this time I resolve to trudge through the arms feeling like jelly phase and eventually reach 100.
  3. Second tattoo – I already have the designs of the next two chosen, I just have to get someone to draw the third one. I resolve to finally get my second tattoo.

That’s it for now. They’re nothing big, but they are very specific and definitely achievable.

    the thicker skin resolution…I imagine a box of band aids in my pocket and when someone says something hurtful, I slap one on. This visual helps me. Then I giggle inside when I see myself covered from head to toe in band aids after particular outings in the world of evil humans.

    happy new year !
