5 years ago tomorrow I made a resolution to stop drinking soda for good and I have stuck with it. When I first began I didn't think I could do it because I consider that I used to be addicted to Mountain Dew. It is one of the few things that I am really proud of myself for sticking with and going to continue sticking with.

As it is the time of year that I am reflecting on how this last year went and what I want to do to make this new year better and make me a better person I have been thinking a lot on what I can resolve. This last year has been hectic and both Shaileen and I have received a lot of service from friends and family mostly during our failed adoption placement. One of my resolutions this next year is to serve others more. I have noticed that when I am serving others is when I am happiest in life.

As always I resolve to not only lose weight but to become healthy. As most of you know Shaileen and I are going through the adoption process currently and I want to be the best husband/father I can be when it happens. One big step to be the best is to be there. The way I am living when it comes to health is not helping that matter. These last 5 years I have not had and soda to drink, which makes me know that I have the ability to stick to a plan and keep it.

Another thing that I thought about on Christmas that I want to do better at is not just post pictures in this blog but also write what is going on. Shaileen gave me these cool blog2print books that we print out and keep on our coffee table. When I thumbed through them I noticed that they are mostly pictures, which is not a bad thing. However, several years down the road when I am looking back the pictures will be awesome to look at but we will want to know what we were doing and the thoughts we had about it.

Shaileen and I look forward to what 2013 brings! Happy New Year
