My 2014 New Year's Resolution

New year's resolution - expectation versus reality?

I came across the thought of having a new year's resolution for myself. I remember when I was a teenager then, I kept on promising and expecting for some self-improvements every new year but in reality, only a few were successfully followed, the rest turned into nothing.

Just what really is new year's resolution for? Will it make me a better person by simply promising that I will do it in the coming year? Will it boast my personality socially, morally and spiritually? Will it make me a stand-out personnel among others in my workplace?

I rather see it as a template of my own life, behavior and attitude that will be applied in the new year. There is a need to change a certain behavior or attitude within me. There are things that need to be changed in my life to make myself a better person compared to the past years. All of these changes will be reflected in the template that will guide myself to look good and better.

Here's the list:

  • Improve my physical well-being. I will eat healthy foods and will do regular exercises. It's been four months already that I quit smoking, this year I am not promising to quit drinking but take it moderately and occasionally. I will minimize sleeping late at night due to my working habit as a programmer/web developer.
  • Improve my mental well-being. I will continue enjoying life and will think positive as ever. I will promote ways of getting happy and the use of mind power to attain the best in life.
  • Spend quality time with my family members, close friends and pets at home.
  • Continue and improve my community service of providing quality education to the needy family especially to deserving children who are deprive of education.
  • Extend my circle of friends by joining voluntary groups or organizations that aim to assist and help the community.
  • Invest in small-business and manage my loans efficiently and effectively.
  • Travel and visit relatives from distant places whom I haven't meet for so many years.
  • Improve my spiritual life, be prayerful and thankful always to God Almighty.
I need to cut the others from the lis. I just prioritize the most important ones.

With determination, dedication, faith and perseverance, I know I can make it for the year 2014. Happy New Year to all!
