New Year Resolutions – Year 2014

Resolutions are made to be broken, say the weak willed. Whatever it may be, it is imperative that we make resolutions every year, just for the heck of it. Here is a list of the most common needs on everyone’s list. How many are kept…well my guess is as good as yours!

  1. I resolve to not spend half my salary shopping online.
  2. I resolve to save a part of my salary every month, as mom has been asking me to do every year for the past seven years.
  3. I resolve to shift my spring cleaning date to the first day of this New Year or they might mark my house a hazardous zone and seal it down.
  4. I promise to not be glued on to Facebook and try and make some real life friends.
  5. I resolve to gulp down my fear of heights and do a bungee jump this year.
  6. I will definitely learn to drive this year or my car might just get bored, spout some wings and fly away.
  7. I will start dieting the first thing this New Year. Till then let me cut another sliver of that gorgeous gooey chocolate cake. This year will not last long.
  8. I promise I will lose these extra 5kgs of flab and definitely run the marathon this coming year.
  9. I resolve to give up cigarettes or life will surely give up on me.
  10. It is never too late to learn. I promise to learn one new language this year.
  11. I promise to stop guzzling down alcohol as if I might not live to see tomorrow. It might just come true.
  12. I resolve to quit this insult of a job, get out of the cramped up cubical, start my own business and break free finally.
  13. I promise to make time for myself away from my housework, kids and the husband. I will take that much needed vacation and go travelling on my own.
  14. I resolve to not book myself on yet another group tour from a travel company and instead hitchhike through Europe.
  15. I will try to watch less TV and be such a couch potato or I fear I might start growing roots.
  16. I will sell off all the unwanted stuff that I have been hoarding for years in a yard sale, or the flea market or on eBay. But I promise I will get rid of all that junk.
  17. I promise to make an effort to like mathematics more and not run away the minute I come across a number.
  18. I will muster enough courage to go across to her and tell her how much I love her and that I want to spend the rest of my life with her.
  19. I will make an effort to not be so wound up all the time, step back and take a minute to smell the flowers.
  20. I will stop making lofty statements in the air and cribbing. Instead, I will do something constructive to make the earth a better place to live in.

  34. I promise to support charity and donate my money for a good cause instead of throwing it away buying booze and packets of cigarettes.
