New Year Resolutions


Is there a point really in making New Year Resloutions? I have made them all my life, and every time more than half of the things on the list remain neglected. I wish I had compiled them all somewhere. Just to show you guys what a lousy resolution keeper I am!

December is a very important month in my life. The best and worst things always happen during this month. I was born in this month. My wedding got fixed in this month. I came to know I was pregnant for the first time during this month. It’s always been a month of rethinking strategies, planning ahead and making life that much more worth living.

December sees the least number of school days for the kids here. Dec 2 is UAE National Day. We just finished off with a long weekend on that account. Schools will close again on 20th to reopen on Jan 8th. Yes, its winter vacation time here.

My kids have finished off with their exams and are starting off a new term today. They seem totally excited by this fact. The fact that they would not have much to revise during the winter hols. But is that really possible? I am eagerly waiting for their list of Holiday Homework this year. This year, it looks like they will have plenty of time to do proper justice to their homework. We are most probably going to be stuck at home the whole time.

Hubby is still in India, and the day begins these days with the hope of receiving a call from him stating that the visa issues have been sorted and he is coming back home. And the day ends with a disappointment that that call never comes. Instead a whole lot of assurance and condolence calls make their way through my day.

Today is a similar hopeful day. Lets see what it brings for me. ☺

Is there a point in my making resolutions this New Year? I really wonder!

What a person needs to survive in this world is an aim in life. When life just floats about aimlessly, its time to make some changes. It just takes one desire, just one reason for life to continue. I am looking for that one desire or one reason this December.

Have you made resolutions this year? And most importantly have you fulfilled any of last year’s resolutions? Do let me know. ☺
