New Years Resolutions… two months in.
The other day I was pulling out of my driveway to head into the office. As I pulled into the road, I looked back to see my 4 year old little boy, running as fast as he could up the sidewalk to catch me, tears streaming down his face. I opened my door expecting to hear that his older brother had taken something from him or pushed him down. I was both touched and humbled to hear him tell me that I had forgotten to give him a hug and kiss goodbye. While his little mind doesn’t comprehend the sense of responsibility I feel to provide for my family, and the importance of arriving at the office on time, in that moment the only thing that mattered to him was a need to feel loved. I couldn’t help but feel that, above all of my professional demands and obligations, nothing would compensate for failure to provide for the most basic needs of those I love the most… at this moment, a teary-eyed little boy.
Re-evaluating our goals.
So here we are at the end of January 2016. Undoubtedly, there are those of us who have already seen some, if not all, of our resolutions fall by the wayside. Less meaningful goals and transient lifestyle whims always come and go. It is absolutely imperative, then, that we take time to examine where we are at with our most important priorities… those things at which we we cannot afford to fail. We may not be on track to lose 20 pounds by summer, but the year is young and there is ample time to reevaluate our goals.
