I set a number of goals for myself this year, and like many people, one of mine is to lose a substantial amount of body fat. This isn’t the first time I’ve made this resolution but I’m hoping it’s the last time. To that end, I’m making this committment openly in the hope that my friends and family will help to hold me accountable for the goals that I’ve set.
I’d like to share a quote with you. This quote is one of the most impactful quotes that I’ve ever heard, and throughout my life, I’ve had very different responses to it roughly corresponding to my age and level of maturity. Sometimes, it has inspired negativity and arrogance. Recently, it has kindled a new interest in writing well about things I care about.
