New Year's Commitment

New Year’s resolutions fail. I know, because I’ve made them and none of them worked out. Why? Perhaps I didn’t want them bad enough. Or I forgot about them. We want change but we don’t want to expend the effort to affect that change.

Okay, I’m lazy. There. I said it. I’m lazy. I’d rather clean the kitchen, the bathroom, and shampoo the rugs than exercise. I hate it. It’s boring, it’s hard, and it’s exhausting. I don’t like the way it feels, I don’t like being hot and sweaty and sore, and I don’t like gasping for breath in public trying to walk up a hill.
