    What are we changing this year ladies and gentlemen?

    I know it's easy to look to the future and promise yourself change, and then, fail. New Years passes and two weeks later you're back to the same ole' linear path you were on, but, this year I think I'm actually going to give it a serious try.

    For me I have a few of the usual suspects. Eat better, exercise, etc. etc. I'm pushing 40 and the Rockstar sitting in front of me probably isn't the best choice. My main one though is to start "living" a little more. Start taking chances. When I look back at my life and see regret, it's not the things I did that I regret, it's the things I didn't do. I want to change that. Life is short, and to me, its starting to feel like time is a runaway train just barreling down the tracks uncontrollably at this point. So, why not make the best of it before my train finally leaves the rails?

    Enjoying life more is certainly a worthwhile goal, but why wait until the New Year to resolve to do that? I personally don't choose to make changes on any schedule, but if that brings a type of order or structure that makes it easier, by all means, make your resolution. It's better than frittering away the years, waiting for just the right moment.

    Best of luck on your journey. I hope your bucket list is always getting close to full, but never quite fills.

    I made a NYE in 2015 saying I hope 2016 was better than 2015 for me. My ex-wife left me in 2016 so I don't do resolutions anymore, even though it turned out the best for me in the long run. :)

    I am giving up all social media this year. I gave up Facebook in the summer and love it. I use twitter as a news source only because so much gets reported and linked via Twitter and I use Instagram for about a month and post on this site. All of which will be cut out beginning January 1.

    I love this. I've been super close to doing this too. I've been weening off Facebook lately, unintendedly really, just because it's getting so monotonous. Felt a lot more fun in the early 2010s. Now it's just flooded with ads, people whining, and too many pages I've liked (I know that's my own doing lol). Just about done with it all but I still feel tethered to it for certain friendships.

    Kudos to you man! Love the idea and may follow!

    Yeah, I realize I like people a whole lot more in person than I do over the internet.

    After watching the 60 minutes segment on plastic, I'm dedicating 2019 to me being a better recycler and try to avoid single-use plastics. Ot's frightening what we have done to the Oceans.

    I am continuing my weight loss. I am down 38 lbs so far, but that isn't new I guess.
    I am going to try and be a better man. A better husband, and Grandpa.
    Can't get any sexier, so that's all I got. :)
