New Resolution/s for every NEW YEAR

When the clock strikes midnight and the year 2015 is ushered in, chances are you will be awake. Might be partying with friends; or standing outside and being dazzled by fireworks; or you might be texting your loved ones to wish them a Happy New Year or, perhaps, you'll be quietly contemplating the 12 months that have passed and the 12 that are yet to come. At the end there’s no escaping the fact that the turn of the new year is a very big deal.


New Year Day (Varies with people and traditions)

Babylonians rang in their new year with an 11-day festival in March, and ancient Egyptians celebrated the advent of their new calendar during the Nile River's annual flood. Chinese have their own ways and dates and Indians usually count their new year with either Dipawali or Basant celebrations.

New Year, no matter when people celebrated it, has always been a time for looking back to the past, and more importantly, forward to the coming year. It's time to reflect on the changes we want, or often need. Lets begin with discussing traditions that are carried out around New Year's Day. The first thing would come in your mind is to keeping a New Year RESOLUTION... 


Why do people make New Year’s resolutions?

The origin of making New Year's resolutions rests with the Babylonians, who reportedly made promises to the gods in hopes they'd earn good favor in the coming year. Many of us are still believe in making resolutions with hope to turn it out as beautifully as we imagine. Be it fitness one, job one or studies one.. be it staying happy and positive around the year or just to be little more creative.. New year is the time when an idea born somewhere in your mind, to grow and flourish with time.


WHY waiting for New Year to grow?

Because most of us thinks that New Year magically provide the catalyst, motivation and persistence we need to reinvent ourselves. Unfortunately with time we often forget our resolution, however this year, don't set yourself up for failure by vowing to make huge changes that will be hard to keep. Instead follow simple steps for successfully making a new year’s resolution you can stick to for good.

For me

I have some big goals.. and no its not about more money, more power or more fame... its about more PEACE!

1. When someone has wronged you, continue to treat them with civility: It's the ultimate goal/resolution of my life.
2. Give far more than you take
3. Genuinely acknowledge others: Taking the time to give sincere praise to those who deserve is fuel for the soul.
4. Default to kindness
5. Embrace diversity: Every person is a world. The uniqueness of each human being makes our communities a more beautiful place.

Share your resolutions in the comments :) have fun in remaining 4 days of '14.. Thanks for reading
