  14. Eddie says:

    After a certain age, some of us stop thinking of making New Year’s resolutions.
    That doesn’t mean that any generation is too old to make new resolutions, to resolve to change, to start anew or just start new ways. I’m a part of those who have stopped making New Year’s resolutions because I have never kept them.
    What’s a New Year if not the continuation of the so-called sequence called Life? The only moment I think of what I’ve done and what I’d like to do in my life, happens at my birthday date. That day I usually make an assessment, then…resolve doing or no longer doing some thing(s).

    Yes it’s true I don’t make New Year resolutions.

    Most people do, and if you do that is fine.

    Why don’t I do it?

    Because Each Day is a day toward my

    I found it’s easier to make a lot of small
    steps, then one big step.

    Of course it’s great to have quarterly and
    yearly goals as part of an overall approach,
    but it’s easier to hit those goals when doing
    them on a small daily scale.

    For example, I daily:

    i have my meal on time.

    sleep early and wake up early.

    Do everything with love.

    proving my love to God by obeying His commands

    live in the light and let the light shine over my life.

    Read the Bible.


    Share Jesus.

    Take care of my family.


    don’t worry about anything.
    and so on.

    Lots of great daily things that you set up
    for your life will give you a great year.

    It’s so much easier to go small, then go

    Maybe add 1-2 new daily habits when
    you write your New Year resolutions
    and see how easy it is.

    Thank You and God Bless. 🙂

  23. Afro says:

    Thanks for starting this sort of nice discussion. I do believe that resolutions are important to make our time more fruitful. But it is also important to keep them and try to execute them properly. No, last year I did not have any resolutions but this year I have. I want to write down new words when I would find them. I want to maintain a time table for everything. In this year I want to write more.
