I have three major goals going forward: to be healthier, to provide better for my family, and to better nurture myself. In roughly that order. Although all three goals sustain each other.
Health comes first. When the airline oxygen mask drops from the overhead bin you need to put your own mask on first before you can help the person next to you.
Providing for the family isn’t limited to finances. Nurturing myself includes personal and professional development.
The changes start today. Not because it’s a new year. Not because today is special. But because today is today and the present is the best time to start.
And because my six year old son patted my belly and called me “fat daddy.”
