Have you ever made a New Year’s Resolution that you kept?

I don’t like the idea of New year’s resolution. I did as a kid, because at that time the New Year excitement meant just about that. You’d be told to make decisions that you want to make better and look at January as a new chapter of your life. You’d be told that this was the best time to make a better you.

But as you grow older, waiting for one whole year to renew yourself and make a better yourself seems like a terrible thing to do. If you think there is an area in yourself that you need to work on or make the better of, you start working towards it right away. Cos after a certain age, wasting even a day can cost you.

Most typical decision that resolutioners take are: Lose weight, get healthy; Eat healthy; Save; travel more; Quit smoking or Drink less; Spend more time with family. It can go on.

Resolutions like – Get married this year or have a baby this year or switching jobs or house or getting certified – makes sense to me. Because these things need planning time and to be mentally prepared. And most importantly, it is advised to take time before implementing such big decisions.

Don’t get me wrong. People who do make resolutions and sticks to it, thumbs up to you!

Am just saying, for me it doesn’t work that way. I’d rather take a decision and implement it when I strongly feel up for it rather than waiting for January. Because time is not waiting up and am not getting any younger! 😛
