How's 2012 treating you so far? I hope great! You haven't given up on your New Year’s resolutions yet have you? All I know is all of a sudden my gym is crowded. I’ll give it another few weeks and it'll be back to normal.
I called a couple of friends to wish them a happy New Year and sadly not all is well, one buddy is dealing with some medical problems and another friend just got a double whammy of bad news. His wife got laid off and his oldest sister, who just turned 60 (my friend is the youngest of like 8 kids) was just diagnosed with lung cancer. It's already spread and the prognosis is not good. She was a 4 pack a day smoker for 30-years who quit 6 six years ago, but apparently the damage had already been done.
After I spoke to my friend, at a traffic light, I wanted to tell the young guy in the pickup truck next to me who was feverishly dragging on his cigarette the news I just received. You know to help him, but I didn't. My grandfather died of lung cancer.
It’s a new year...If you're ready, maybe it’s time to quit.
