I learned a valuable lesson while volunteering with our church high school group last year. I'll spare all the details, but the lesson was to "be intentional."
If you care about someone, let them know. If you appreciate something that somebody has done in your life, let them know. Go help your neighbor - today. We have no guarantee for tomorrow, we have today to make it the best!
To borrow the old saying, "We judge others by their actions, but we tend to judge ourselves by our intentions". We all get caught in the trap of saying to ourselves, "I meant to go help", or "I sure appreciate so-and-so" but we just don't follow all the way through to put our intentions into actions.
This is my continued resolution, to act rather than just intend to act.
I don't know about it being a resolution, but I intend to get myself in better physical condition. Wifey, commented the other day, that while in the YMCA swimming pool, it looked like I had let my upper body start to resemble the "Michlin Tire guy." The first step will be to cut back on portion sizes and snacks while on chat.
I resolve to buy 4 more 70 ton hoppers to complete my coal train, build 5 new PIKO buildings to complete my town, finish the mine spur, and switch yard on my outdoor layout and get all the planting done before our club's March meeting at our house. For the rest of the year?....I resolve to lose 30 pounds and start running again.
