ResolutionList_revisedI am sure that all readers of this blog have at one time or the other made New Year Resolutions in their lives. While a majority of you would have either failed at keeping these resolutions for more than a couple of months, quite a few of you would have settled down for a modified (read ‘easier’) version of the original resolutions.

That being said I am sure there are quite a few of you (the minority) who actually managed to keep a resolution long enough so that it actually went on to become a habit and continues till date.

As for me and my tryst with New Year resolutions, read this post [Link to post] and you will know what I am talking about.


This post is part of the WordPress Daily Prompts : 365 Writing Prompts program where the aim is to post at least once a day based on the prompts that they have provided. The prompt for today was “Resolved : Have you ever made a New Year’s Resolution that you kept?

  1. Good Luck with the project. Sounds like an awesome thing to do. If ever during the year you think you need to add on an additional contributor please remember me. My resolutions are easier ones actually. Never felt the need to resolve lifestyle changes on new year.

    • @Sugandha, yes, the whole point of this post was to talk about the futility of New Year resolutions with relation to the specific date, and not resolutions as a concept 😀 Thanks for the encouraging words about Project 365, truly appreciate it 🙂

    • @Roshan, that’s good, as long as you are able to follow through with your resolutions and take action on them through the year, that will do wonders for you 🙂

  2. As a teenager, I used to make many New Year resolutions, only to break them within days. As I grew up I found it like making fun of myself and then I resolved not to make any resolution at least on a New Year. As you mentioned, if we badly want to make something happen, we don’t have to wait for a ‘muhurtham’ like New Year. 🙂
