Resolutions!


New year is the perfect time for fresh beginnings. An opportunity to start with a clean slate. Learning from our mistakes in the past and making amends. And so, people make resolutions at the beginning of each year.  Honestly I never gave it a thought. Each year of my life has gone by without making a single resolution.

I think it was the fear that resolutions bring in pressure. Eventually you give in to the temptation of doing exactly the opposite of what you decide. So what's the point of even making one? But then it started to sound like giving up without even getting started. I didn't want to be that person. So my first resolution was to actually make a list of resolutions for this year .

Surprisingly when I started to list, I came up with quite a few things that I wanted for myself in twenty fifteen! With a list of things written down I feel more charged up to make them happen. I think I have taken the first step and it feels great.

They say resolutions are meant to be broken. Even if that's true it's important we make one. And now that I've made a couple myself, I'd like to believe I will keep up.

Did you make a resolution this year? If not it's never too late. Hope reading this post will help you make one!:)

HaPpY 2015!

  1. "But then it started to sound like giving up without even getting started." - I agree with you completely. From serious ones to those we know will not last even a day, Resolutions make us create a list of things we rather change.

  2. Exactly true, this is the time to make resolutions even we are not able to stay with them forever at least we can learn something new in doing so.
    I am looking forward to minimise my list because a long list will draw me back when I failed to abide with them.
    HAPPY NEW YEAR Sonal, its a nice post.

  3. Wish you a very happy and creative 2015.
    Personally, I started to keep a happiness Jar, where I would drop paper pieces on which I have written about the happiest moment of the day. Inspired by my favorite writer Elizabeth Gilbert.

  5. I started with small, easy-to-keep resolutions last year, so that I stay tempted and focused on their completion. I did succeed :) This year too, I've stayed on the similar lines.

    Good luck for your twenty fifteen targets :)
