My New Year’s Resolutions……check it out in Facebook

I have never made any New Year resolutions so far but all of a sudden I was attracted by one of my friends New Year resolutions posted in Facebook. First I just liked it without reading it, I know most of the guys do same as I do in Face book. who bother to read such a long and write comment instead just like it your friend will be happy and you will be connected with your friend and even he won’t feel bad . Suddenly my curiosity developed to Google some of the New Year resolutions made by great celebrities instead of reading my friends resolution. Then I read the line from the author of the New year Resolutions book “A course in happiness, where he has written “”Resolutions are more sustainable when shared, both in terms of with whom you share the benefits of your resolution, and with whom you share the path of maintaining your resolution. Peer-support makes a difference in success rate with new year’s resolutions”. Then I read Gretchen Rubin (author of best-seller “The Happiness Project”): “You hit a goal, you achieve a goal. You keep a resolution”.

I know A New Year’s resolution is a commitment that a person makes to one or more lasting personal goals, projects, or the reforming of a habit. Or its resolutions one wants to achieve in the coming year. It’s a new path where you want to walk confidently with your broad vision that you set and define in your New Year resolutions but for me I don’t have any
That is my way of thinking I don’t want to force you to follow my opinion and don’t write any resolutions, you are always welcome to do what you really want to do and achieve in future.. I know if I make some good resolutions and follow them strictly that will always be advantageous for my personal growth. So just in nutshell I can say that it’s a self-improvement laws or the bill that one makes for himself. So why to read others resolutions if that is not for me? So why to read others resolutions in Face book? I was just thinking it all and I don’t know what happen to myself for the first time suddenly I opened the wall of my dear friend’s New Year’s Resolutions and started reading,plan to accomplish as I have thousands of plan and ideas and wishes to accomplish so it’s worthless to mention all of them and achieve nothing in the end of the year which will bring only frustrations and disappointment so why to make New Year Resolutions….He has set some goals and that reminded my past days or the yester years, I just turned back to my time machine and went back to some years of my life….. Because I realized that writing new resolutions is to peeping back to own past and find out faults and mistakes that we made in past years and want to rectify them in future….so I felt it is good time for looking back to my own past. For the first time in my life I visualized and flash back all my past days and found lots of mistakes that I made in my life and at the same time I have achieved lots of things in my life, then I felt that I achieved all those things without writing any New year’s Resolutions than what’s the point to write now….I know writing a resolutions means to improve, achieve that we don’t have, go where we really want to go, do what we really want to do, improve that we really need to improve but ……. For me I didn’t see anything special that to mention or write as a resolutions.Then again I stared reading my friends wall from his face book where he mentioned and listed the things to achieve in coming year, I felt happy to know that he wants to improve his habit drinking less alcohol and eat healthy food than all his junk stuffs. Want to focus in his studies to achieve better grade to get better job, lose some weight to look handsome and attract new girlfriend, He has been working five days and week and attending his regular classes which has increased his level of stress and want to quit smoking etc. wow great job now I can see some good changes in my friend’s life. I felt glad and relaxed as if I achieved his goal and fulfilled all his resolutions, wow it’s great to write a New year resolutions so that we can improve our life..so without reading further from his wall I started writing my own resolutions which were more or less similar to him, then I felt at least time to time we can chat and ask each other how far we achieved our resolutions, then suddenly I stuck in some point of my life that I could not change since my High School days and still that I wanted to leave and move forward with good health and happiness. I realized my that habit is similar to my friend than once again I turned back to his wall and started reading if he mentioned that too in his resolution, oh yes that was in his first priority list.Wow it’s good if he can change himself than why not I? His resolutions motivated me to be more bold and optimistic…. I again turned to my wall and stated writing more resolutions…. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 ………. I wrote up to 20 points of resolutions for the first time.. wow what a relief and really my coming year going to be a great year I will be more ………wow wow……. I was so excited reading my own Resolutions….then suddenly I came back to the reality and become suspicious and asked some questions to own self…. Can I ? will I ? should I ? Is it possible? Oh no I have to really work hard and sacrifice a lots of things from my life… than I felt my daily life would be even worse than the days when I was in a Boarding School and have to follow lots of rules and regulations, but we always felt proud to break all those rules and bunk our classes and ran out of the School annual day parades… if we had followed what our Principal or Hostel matron asked us to do I would not have been writing half of my resolutions and even my friends would not.. Unknowingly I became apprehensive.I stopped writing and even thinking about what to write next in my resolutions, once again I opened his wall and started reading, at the end where he has motioned in BOLD letter that “ GOD Please help me to fulfill at least two resolutions that I have been writing since last seven years…………………. Suddenly whole wall of his Facebook seemed blank and I had nothing to read further…. Instead I deleted all the Resolutions that I have been writing and left my status with lots of question marks and Happy New Year to all my Facebook friends…..then I log out…
