New Year Resolutions.


Wow,  It has been how many months?

I promised myself and you guys, I would post more and try to not suddenly give up...

Yeah that's a goal that didn't really work out.

I think that was also one of my 2015 resolutions to not give up on things.

That can't be crossed off my list. :/

It's quite amusing to listen to your friends memorise their New Year resolutions while everyone else just stares amused. Why, because it's funny?

Because it's the things they say every new year, every new month, they say the things they will do, try to improve, change. The things we say we will do, but yet deep down we are already saying oh I won't stick to it, but I'll still say it anyway.

What's the point of setting a goal if you know you're not going to do it?

What's the point if you know you're not going to bother?

What's the point?

That's the nasty little bugger that sits in our minds, that makes us give up and simply not try.

If you don't believe me here are some examples.

I need to revise. But what's the point of revising? I'll probably fail anyway.

I really need to tidy my room, what's the point? It'll just get messy again.

I should update my blog, what's the point though? No one reads it.

It's not a bad thing to make goals and not fulfil them, because sometimes things happen and get in the way. However I think it’s a bad thing to make an empty goal. A goal that you have no intention of even attempting to do.

So maybe in the last few days of 2015 as people rush to be reunited with family, gather their memories of the year, shake off the weights that held them down and pack their suitcase to jet off into 2016.

Maybe we can make a goal and instead of saying what's point.

Dive in and say hell yeah let's do it.

That sentence. That's my New Years resolution to act upon the goals I set.

If it doesn't work out, at least I can say I tried.

Happy New Year. You Made It!
