Looking Forward to Having a Great 2016

By Staff | Jan 6, 2016

Boy, 2015 went by so quickly. I don’t know if its that’s just because we are getting older and the time just seems to go a little more quickly, or it’s because we are just so busy day-after-day, and don’t stop to smell the roses as much as we did early in life.

I have had several New Year’s resolutions in the past and have down quite well in keeping them, except for a few. Last year, I said I was going to read the Bible more and pray daily, and for the biggest part, I have.

However, I didn’t do as well as losing weight and staying healthy. I did lose a few pounds here and there, but never enough to get where I want to be. Maybe it’s because I have been trying to get my knees better since the two knee replacements, and then here in December, I injured myself breaking a couple ribs.

This year, I want to be injury free and be able to work on my weight loss and watch what I eat.

My youngest son is to get married in Canada in June and I want to be able to be much healthier, I don’t think I can be any happier. I have the wife of my dreams, three outstanding sons and the best looking grand-kids a grandfather could possibly have. Not only are they a good looking bunch, (like their pap-pap), but are sharp as a tack, too.

We got my mom off the hill and now lives within two minutes from me and five seconds from my sister, and get to see her almost every day compared to once a month at the best when she lived in Cameron.

If I could change one thing in 2016, it would be to forgive and forget. There are to many people that hold grudges, just forget and forgive and look forward to the future. Learn from your mistakes and let the past be the past. Let’s not bring grudges with you into the new year, and forgive and forget, and just let-it-go and look forward to the new year.

To compete in the race, you must commit to it, and do it well. Discipline yourself enough to be able to finish the race, and train yourself through self discipline and finish the race on top, but remember this if you don’t remember anything.

Like yourself and treat people the way you would want them to treat you, and you will never ever have grudges, and you will always be a winner, maybe not always on the playing field, but in life.
