Why I don’t make new year resolutions: The TruthMakarand Vaidya
“I am flooded with new ideas.” Yash and I were having our Saturday breakfast at our favorite place along with a very large cup of coffee. “My new year resolution is to take the plunge, get over the fear, and start something of my own.”
“Wow, Yash! I am with you. Finally, you made up your mind. I am so excited to hear this. The breakfast is on me, today!”
Sometimes, one just needs some reason, some push, and a spark to start something new. For such beginnings, the new year is a great occasion.
“What is yours?” Asked Yash.
“I don’t have any. In fact, I never made any new year resolution.” I had no reason to feel guilty.
I see many people start something, just because it is a new year. Follow it rigorously for a week or two! And then put it back on hold, only to bring it back in the next year.
“Wish you a great year ahead, and I am sure your dreams will come true in the new year. Good luck.”
To start something new and exciting, should I wait for the new year?
