Cheers for 2012!

BY Nancy G. Janiola IN 18 comments


I do think New Year's resolutions can't technically be expected to begin on New Year's Day, don't you?  Since, because it's an extension of New Year's Eve, smokers are already on a smoking roll and cannot be expected to stop abruptly on the stroke of midnight with so much nicotine in the system.  Also dieting on New Year's Day isn't a good idea as you can't eat rationally but really need to be free to consume whatever is necessary, moment by moment, in order to ease your hangover.  I think it would be much more sensible if resolutions began generally on January the second.  ~Helen Fielding, Bridget Jones's Diary

and i guess new years resolution loses its essence which is really to make one but now seems like to be a tradition. like in christmas, we open our gifts well for new year, we make resolutions...

sapol, pak, very true, kahit magdiet tayu ndi pede kasi nakapanghihinayang ang food, happy new year

Happy New Year! Happy 2012!

with regards to making resolutions, I agree with Ms. Tatess! for me I started the change way before 2012 came. It's like preparing myself for the New Year and whatever surprises it offers. :)

Lifestyle change can start anytime. One need not wait for a new year to start changing the way he lives his life. It's best that he does it when no one is watching.

Fun post. Haven't seen the movie though. But I believe we can change whenever we want even without resolutions.

Keep smiling and be merry. Happy Happy New Year to you.

New year's resolutions are just a matter of do-it-lists, lists of priorities or lists of things undone from the previous years. That's why it is so termed as "resolution" - meaning to be accomplished as to its proximity or urgency. For it's better to have a "list of priorities" rather than wait for chances or opportunity to come.

Short but precise. I actually don't believe in new year's resolution. I believe change can happen anytime of the year. Happy New Year!
