“Reasons” During the Holiday Season

There’s a quote in my book before the acknowledgements page from Jean Renoir as Octave in “The Rules of the Game” and it reads:

“You see in this world, there is one awful thing, and that is that everyone has his reasons.”

Now, I haven’t met a man, woman, or child that doesn’t harbor deep desires. They all look to some horizon of “better” and nearly all of them have “reasons” why they aren’t en route to those horizons. 

The holiday season and subsequent New Year is often a time of reflection and hopefully action, thereafter. Nonetheless, those pesky reasons show up to spoil all the fun. 

I hope you can get past your “reasons” and get moving inside the gym and out. See you in 2023, everyone!
