We all want the chance to make a new start, and use the new year as a starting place, but when you think about it, you can start to improve yourself at any time

So what will it be this year?

So another new year, I wonder will you be making any new year’s resolutions.

And with good intentions I do try and make the New Year a better one for myself than the last one, but like most people, most of the time my good intentions fall by the wayside

They had it right in the old days

I wish my neighbor would take note of what the ancient Babylonians New Year’s resolution was.

It appears that In Babylon they make a New Year’s resolution that they would return all borrowed things and paid all their debts.

Now to me that seems like a pretty good resolution.

Self-improvement

In fact to reflect upon self-improvement in one way or another, seems to be the most popular new year’s resolution

Whether it be to lose weight or to become generally fitter, cutting down or even cutting out some bad habits, top of the list for that one has to be booze and/or smoking.

So what will YOU do?

Do you know there was a study made on making New Year’s resolutions in 2007 and it found that 88% out of 3000 people who had made a new year’s resolution failed.

So it seems the best thing is not to make a new year’s resolution and so the question of the day is

"Will you be making any new year’s resolutions, and what will they be?"

Making flippant resolutions is only cheating us and the occasion. I don't do, but try to improve my attitude over time and sometimes forced to more by circumstances and these happen more as we age! siva

I make the same resolution or goal every year, to do something new I've never done before and go somewhere new I've never been before. It makes life interesting.

Best resolution is not to make one. Anyway, let me wish you A HAPPY NEW YEAR.

I vowed not to make resolutions this year. Not that I feared losing sleep because I "broke" such resolutions, but because I work better with life changes when the "right" time hits me and that could occur anytime during the year.

I agree with Ronda, change will happen when the time is right and the person is in the right frame of mind to make the change. New Year resolutions simply add extra stress and worrying about keeping them takes away time that could be more usefully spent actually making changes.

I have the same resolution every year, which is to remember what the number of the year is!

I am usually OK for January, but in February I start writing the previous year's number, for some unaccountable reason!
