Wishing vs. Resolving | My New Year's Resolutions

Awhile ago, my family and I attended a service and the homily really caught my attention. It's basically about New Year's Resolutions. Even though a lot of people ave up on the idea of making a list already, the priest said that it's still better to set goals every January 1st so we won't be out of track and stuff. I personally didn't make it a habit making one and I don't know, sometimes I can't be bother with stuff. Anyways.  

He said the problem with New Year's resolutions is that it seems like we're confusing it with WISH. I think it's the same as confusing a goal to a wish. Come to think of it. Wish is wanting something to happen whereas a goal is more specific. Goal is a way to somehow bridge the gap of that wish and making it happen. For example! Many people would say "I WANT TO BE HAPPY!" and that's just proper but how would you do that? In making a resolution, then wanting to be happy wouldn't resolve anything. An alternative to that "resolution" would probably be, "I will do more things that will make me happy." It's quite the same but somehow different. I mean, wanting to be happy is kind of a "by chance" situation while saying that you would do something yourself so you could be happy is more of a resolution. A plan of action. Same goes with wanting to be rich. Wanting to be rich is like waiting for a lottery jackpot price. That's not a resolution. A resolution would be something like "I will work double-time to earn more money." I don't know. It made me think. Anyways. 

With that being said, I would like to share with you guys my resolutions for 2014. 

1. I promise to drink more water. Like, at least 2L per day. 
2. I will try my best not to be late at work. Not even a minute! 
3. I promise not to skip my skin care routine even though I'm dead tired already.
4. I promise to take some time off once in a while and pamper myself. 
5. I promise to be always forever grateful and always think of my family and friends first. 

That's all for this post guys. What is your New Year's resolution? I want to know. See yah! Happy New Year!


  1. Happy New Year!
