Be resolute on your New Year’s Resolutions


NY EVE 2014 036

2015 is here and what did we learn from last year? The most important thing I learnt is that time flies and we need to make the most of every moment in case there are no more. Most of us make New Year’s Resolutions and I guess they are a good way of looking forward to the New Year with goals and direction. Unfortunately most people don’t keep their resolutions and they’ll make them over again and again.  They say, “I want to quit smoking” but make no effort in giving up the smokes. No patches, no chewing gum, even no cold turkey, just keep on chuffing away. Then there’s the people who say I’ll lose weight but months after the New Year starts they are still eating badly and haven’t started exercising.

Why do people do this? Are they only reciting a resolution because, that’s just what you do on New Year’s Eve? I must admit I like resolutions and I admit I haven’t stuck to all of mine but I give them some effort. I guess that’s all resolutions really need is the effort and willpower to see them through. So if you made a resolution I hope you work hard at it and fulfil it, otherwise it’s like those moments in time that have past. We can never reclaim them back. Well, we sort of can if we blog about them.

Wishing you all a fabulous 2015, full of health, love, smiles, happiness, accomplishments, milestones and dreams fulfilled.

My resolution: write more often and engage with my readers.What’s yours?

How about entering the Umoja Writing Competition 2015?

  1. Wonderful post! My resolution this year is to get my novel published. Before I do that though, I’m going to do my best to build up my online readership more. I’m aiming for 1,000 followers on my blog and 1,000 on Twitter. I’m going to try to get more on Facebook too. I love to connect with my readers, so more are always welcome and appreciated.
    You have a lovely blog. Keep up the fantastic work! Happy New Year!

    • Thanks Justina. I’m also trying to get my novel published and one way to do that (other than writing well) is to show publishers you have someone to sell to, so the online readership is important. I’m doing my final draft (again, because when I think it’s final I usually find something else to fix). Good luck with your novel and I’ll check you out on Twitter too.
