I concluded New Years Resolutions were a lost cause years ago. So I spare myself the disappointment wink

To quite booze for the first 3-4 months, I've done that for the past 15 years. Last year I only lasted two months, but then there's been a few years where I've lasted the whole year! And swimming a couple of times a week, I used to do it but I got out of the habit. I'm 63 & have to get a bit pro-active about looking after myself.

To be wise enough to know to make something good, better. To make something that is wrong, right. To be wise enough to know the things we don't know we will hold off and that the God's will bless us in the future to use the new knowledge for good. Which in reality is happening every split second of our existence. May 2014 really be better then 2013, onward and forward.NEVER give up when you know you are on the right cause. A right cause that is not blemish with lies and constant moral contradictions.

My resolution is to avoid the gym for the first three weeks, until all the crowds give up on their New Year resolutions smile

Haha, saw this as a topic on the news, the increase of gym subscriptions at the start of the year. I'll still keep doing my regular jogs and eating the odd greasy pleasure from time to time; at my last checkup my doctor advised me to lose 20 pounds, I guess that would make for a good resolution, but on the other hand what would captain Ahab be without moby dick? big grin

To stop buying so many boxes of Little Debbie Nutty Bars. Now they make the double sized 12 packs. Bastards! Don't they know how weak I am?

I like New Year's resolutions because I have been pretty successful with them. When I look back over the decades in my diaries I see a good percentage of them came true. Leisure, work, career, social etc etc. It's all about endurance and inner faith. To make yourself believe you can do it.If you slip you just get yourself right back up.If it is that important to you , then you have to give it your greatest shot.

A piece of cantaloupe everyday, I used to do that for years but somehow got out of the habit about ten years ago.

Very important. Try to switch one's charity to people who really appreciate what you do for them and are good people. Cut back on some foolish moves within charity when you spend your precious time with people who don't care and have no respect for you.We were not born in this world to be suckers.

I tend this way myself.
I think people lie to themselves about a kind of myth of self improvement.
Does self improvement exist? Yeah, sure. Why does it start January 1st?

A lot of the things about self improvement that people talk about are simple lifestyle choices, they are fat, drink too much or whatever. Moderation is the key I think. When people say that are going to lose a huge amount of weight, or stop drinking entirely, well I know it is not gonna happen. How about this

be happy

Just out of curiously. BE HAPPY? nice sentiment but not realistic, We as human beings must find things that make us happy. What does it mean to simply say be happy. For many us humans to make more moments in our lives happier we must examine the things that are causing us not to be as happy as we can be. That is where CHANGE comes in and while I agree there is no reason one should have to sit down and make a list of how to change their lives at the beginning of the year. It can be anytime. I think it is nice that such a tradition for some people is New Year's resolutions because even if only 5% of all people succeed with their resolutions. That is a big change for the better.

I am more of the Christian or Buddhist approach, that happiness and contentment is my native condition.

Western culture has taught us that we need a lot to make us happy, possessions, people, kinds of relationship, certain amounts/kinds/quality of sex, types of cars, clothes, beauty. I am just saying that this approach is flawed at the very start and it is doomed to failure. Now if you are natively happy in your self with what actually matters, meaning, God, value of your family - and then you get or work on getting nice things etc, then that is fine.

I have all that I need to be happy right now. I could make a list of things that would be nice, even things that I need, I am wearing a pair of shoes with broken soles, but alas, it does not take anything away from me.

Here are Woody Guthrie's New Years Rulin's from 1942. A lot of things that would be great to stick to this year and every year.

That was a nice thing to read.Even though some might seem a bit dated to some people, most of it is timeless.. Now let's say everyone who reads that will try all those things , it might be a better world.
