Last year, I wrote this for my new years "resolution":
This year my goal is to be happier by making others happy.
In retrospect, I feel as though I was successful about 50% of the time with this goal. I think I met this goal in my professional life, with students, and with most colleagues. But I don't think I met it with my family. In 2011, I hope to revisit this goal with a focus on family.
Here are my goals for 2011:
1. Be happier by making others happy, especially my family.
2. Do my best to teach my children how to love others and treat others with kindness all the time.
3. Run the Army 10-miler in October (yikes!)
4. Run 500 miles this year.
5. Reach my goal weight of 150 pounds.
Here we go. Happy New Year, everyone.
