Reflections On Resolutions

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “To Be Resolved.”

We’re entering the final days of 2014 — how did you do on your New Year’s resolutions these past 11.75 months? Is there any leftover item to be carried over to 2015?

Let me at the outset confess I don’t really make New Year resolutions that resolutely.  So there wasn’t much “stocktaking” to be done right now.  Oh I do make a few resolutions all through the year with deadlines of the following week , month and so on.  But I have forgotten the time I last made a New Year resolution in all earnestness for the  New Year per se.

My best “resolution ” so far has been in 2012 when I decided to lose some weight and manged to overcome my seemingly insurmountable weakness for sweets chocolates and the like. It was more a test of my own will. I wanted to get control over it and I used the diet and exercise as a tool to do that.


I always find it a little difficult to gain absolute control over my mind which to me is the biggest obstacle to anything I need to do. Once I have control over my mind, I can have control over the situation and  my life as well….!

So to me resolutions are important only to that extent… nothing special on New Year as such….

Having said that… here’s wishing everyone a wonderful  happy and resolved New Year in 2015!

    I don’t make resolutions, either. I think they’re pointless. For me, anyway. I hope you have a very merry Christmas and the happiest of new years! 🙂

    People (which primarily means me) tend to make a list of resolutions, wanting to do a complete turnaround-which actually means nothing gets achieved. So, the solution is to focus on one thing at a time and we do not need January 1 for that.
    Happy New Year to you!
