It’s that time of the year again. When people make, break and bend resolutions. New Year’s resolutions have always played a big part of our lives. Few believe in making resolutions and even fewer follow them.
Making resolutions has become somewhat of a lost art these days. Resolutions in a teenager’s mind are very similar to rules and regulations that you set up for yourself but still itching to break them.
Nilofar Ali of class 10th ‘D’ said that, “I think a person should gradually bring about a change in themselves , because if made into a resolution once, it becomes really difficult for a person to follow it and he ends up breaking it. So, I believe in gradual change.”
Most girls from tenth grade felt that it was necessary to keep resolutions but achievable ones. Those who did keep multiple resolutions felt that they achieved a lot in the past month but did miss out on some of them.
Salonee Karnik another student of class 10th said that, “I want to read more printed books rather than eBooks, spend more quality time with my brother and also cycle weekly. I feel that I have accomplished most of my resolutions except spending more time with my brother, which is quiet hard to do if I may say so.”
Resolutions are mostly made on New Year but as they say “You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.” Every day you can set new resolutions and achieve them. But stick to them. Give yourself a reward each time you complete doing it. After all you do deserve it.
So if you haven’t made a resolution yet what are you waiting for?! Get going! Make a list of things you want to achieve. Fulfill them, bend them but don’t break them. Because at the end of the day when you are ticking off your resolutions from your to do list, the satisfaction you feel wont compare to anything else in the world.
