Do you make resolutions each New Year? Do you resolve to exercise more, eat better, lose weight, save money, get fit, change your life? I don't choose these sorts of things. Instead, I make resolutions to improve my life in this way: I resolve to take care of my health, live life more fully, spend more time with my loved ones, travel, read, do, eat, drink, try new things and have more fun. I resolve to spend more time with family and friends, travel more, have more fun. I resolve to retire as early as possible, and am working conscientiously towards that goal.Taking care of my mother through her recent strokes and dementia has made me realize, if I follow in her footsteps, I may not have too many good years left. I 'd better enjoy life while I can. What would you do if you knew you only had 20 years left? Or 10 "good" years, where you felt well enough to actually do stuff?
