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?
I have never in my whole life made a new year’s resolution. Simply because it defies my understanding as to how just one agenda in the orchestra of options to improve yourself can be singularily selected for special treatment.
Friends have encouraged me to have. But i had my mind determined not to do it. I have seen a lot of people make a resolution just to break it. A resolution is a promise to yourself to help you become better person from your perspective. When people break a promise they make to themselves i don’t understand why they make a huge fuss when someone else breaks their promise to them. If they themself break their promise, they shouldn’t be expecting the same from others.
Its better spread the different aspects of character that you wish to resolve in short terms and get through them. Than dragging it all round the year bolting towards the end to finish it.
I keep my streak of not having a new years resolution for the 20th year and happy with it.
