The New Year is Here!
365 days; and there comes a new year yet again!
Far back, the Babylonians decided on every first of January that they should repay their debts. The Romans prayed to the gods to forgive their sins; and knights used the day to make promises of chivalry.
Have you ever thought of something you would like to do starting with the New Year?
If you are still wondering which resolutions you can make, here are some clues –
I shall improve my health — eat less junk, stop sodas; and exercise more often.
I will be positive — more tolerant and less angry; will laugh more and sulk less.
I will study harder, better my grades, think about career and be responsible.
I will improve myself — be more organized, manage my time and be independent.
I will get spiritual — meditate, do the right thing, and be nicer and kinder to people.
I will be more social and I will do so by actually spending lesser time on social media.
Are resolutions on a timer?
I'm sure the Babylonians repaid their debts, but did they create new ones as days passed? And hopefully the Romans didn't sin again!
If you ate healthy wouldn't you just continue to eat wholesome all the time?
Or manage your time, focus on studies or be a positive person in general?
And if that had to be done, why is the date so important? And why when we think of this resolution well in advance; do we not decide on the 27th of November or 19th of December or 9th of May itself to follow it?
How is the 1st of January so special that things can and must happen just on that day and not on any other?
Of course resolutions are very important. They are like dreams you haven't set out to make real yet. This New Year, let us set smaller goals for ourselves and make resolutions that we can follow, not just those that are fashionable…
