NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS

Nearing the year end,hearing about resolutions is such a cliché or the term itself  is simply a mantra.Apparently,most embrace the thought of becoming new like the coming year consequently not fathoming the real purpose of resolutions.Resolutions should ,however,not be perfunctory and transient, but carried out with prudence everyday.Anyway,2014 is around the corner and we are on this road again.

I don’t think I have to wait for a new year to opt for being better though. We have to realise that one’s positive change is valid at any time of the year.One should promptly act to any irregularity or abhorrent lifestyle detected in themselves.If new year’s resolutions  are the only treatment we give to ourselves in the hope to be better people,it will mean we overlook any other shortfalls in our lives because we will not give attention to these other aspects of change.This also means  that our change will only be seasonal which is unhealthy.My point is make necessary amendments as often as possible.

On the other hand,resolutions on their own are a positive step moving into a new year.The fact is the change into a new year is actually not felt physically,it is only the dates that change,otherwise you are still the same person you were the previous year.Resolutions are the easiest rules you can ever break maybe because you are the only person to enforce them on yourself.This is why self-discipline is a very substantial catalyst in this reaction or you may end up breaking one or two of your rules on the very first day of that particular year.

I wish to give you 5 tips to make sure your resolutions are a success

  1. Come to a consensus with yourself that you really need the change
  2. Remind yourself of the awkwardness your current status causes you
  3. Let someone close know about your plan so they remind you when you are off track
  4. Be ready to fight all the impeding factors like temptation and criticism
  5. Last but not the least, pray and meditate about your resolutions

Personally, I come up with resolutions every week which I honestly constantly struggle to cope up with on this journey in search of perfection. My message to anyone not enchanted by their present lifestyle is not to wait till next year, but work on themselves immediately. When you find a cause for war, you do not slacken, but go for it lest your rival pounces on you first to your disadvantage .Note that the change in mention is merely developing into a better person.However,change because it is necessary and not for a person because it should be about complacency-your happiness is key .

I pray you all go into the next year believing you will be a better people because you are working on yourselves at the moment. Wishing you all a wonderful festive season and a prosperous coming new year.God bless you all and stay safe.

  1. wooow so Im reading this and thinking, ‘once again he put my exact thoughts into words’ people always used to ask me my new yrs resolutions n its rare that I have a list to hand them. i believe in making changes at anytime. I learn so many new things in the course of a year that i find myself tryna change so many new things while, at the same time, Im tryna be consistent with the things Im already working on. i like how you have pointed out that though the year may b new its still the same you. i have been pondering a lot on how I want a better next year but continuously have to remind myself its the year changing not my life. big ups Aquila 🙂
