Year 2008 is coming...What is your New Year's resolution?

New Year's Resolution - It's New Year once again and it's time to count our blessings and to make promises to ourselves which we all call as resolutions. However, only a few are really able to follow the guidelines which they themselves have 'imposed' on themselves. I have a few resolutions on my list, but on top of it is to take good care of myself by following strictly my diet...

A couple of days from now and it's new year. So fellow mylotters, do you have new year's resolutions? What are they? Do you believe that 2008 is a lucky and prosperous year? Why or why not? My New Year's resolution is to be more careful of my diet to stay healthy. Also, to be more flexible and understanding with family members and in the workplace. I don't have bad habits that I would discard, but only to control my anger because these days, I have noticed that I easily get irritated. Could be the age. Happy New Year!

Hi psyche49f, Myself along with my 4 other friends have decided that on the new year day "We are going to donate our eyes' and took a reslution on the same.One of my friend will bring the 'Eye Donation Forms' from a leading Eye Hospital and we all four will be filling it up and decided to give on the New Year Day. Let my eyes continue to see this world through somebody. Wishing you a happy and properous New Year-2008 Good Luck.

Hello dear psyche. Well I do have a few resolutions in mind for the new year. Firstly I will teach my son his weak subject English during the winter vacation and summer vacation to help him improve his English level for higher scores in English examinations. Secondly, I myself would like to take part in some English level examination held by the country to make me study more as a way of improving and evidencing myself in the comprehensive application of the language. Thirdly, I would like to buy my parents a new fridge to replace the old one. There will be sure to be more resolutions. Thanks for your discussion.

This is what I dont like when it comes to new years and its because of new year;s resolution, coz I end up not doing them. Maybe because I just wrtie them and dont mean them by heart so I make or list half hearted new yer's resolutions which I end up breaking every year. I just want to keep it to myself first and see if they happen by the first quarter of next year. I want to make a difference this year and want to hit it bull'seye rather than getting frustrated in the end. I have made a promise to myself and try to be the better person from the last year and hopefully be able to make it this year those that I have missed doing or keeping last year, emotionally, financially, physically and spiritually.

My new year's resolution is to lose some weight so that I could take the dance classes that I need to take in my college to graduate with my Bachelors in Musical theatre. Hopefully I accomplish this goal and I'll be able to take my classes my junior year.

My 2008 resolutions will be to focus more on the health of myself and my family. To work more efficiently, so I can spend more quality time with my hubby and sons. I hope to improve on my 2007 efforts on my online shop at Etsy.com and hopefully make more money in 2008.

I used to make new years resolutions each year but only stuck to them occasionally. Now my resolutions each year are to be all that I can be and all that I want to be. I find these resolutions easier to stick to and keep then many that I used to make. But wouldn't it be nice to make resolutions for other people sometimes.

Not to make any, just live life one day at a time as God gives me the gift to live them. By not making any I don't let myself or anyone else down and there is none to break.

I think 2008 will be a good year for me since 2008 is a year of the rat (Chinese Astrology) and I am born under that sign. My new year's resolution is to avoid procrastination. Be punctual all the time. I would also stick to my regular work outs and be more health-conscious. And most of all, to stay positive all the time. I believe that optimism is always good.
