2018 Resolution: How I failed already!

I know it is that time of the year! New year and resolution fevers are everywhere. As I keep telling you December is my second favorite month because of the festive season and I start being all hyper right from the November end. I mean who would not be so, except maybe Grinch.


But seldom life let’s us to what we want right? I start out with great rigor and somehow that slowly fizzles out. Does it happen anyone else too? More or less, the following incident happens every year.

December 1st (8 AM):
Time for new resolutions! New year! Yay, excited (Grinning)

Dec 11th (8 PM):
Why have not I come up with a resolution yet?

Dec 17th (7 PM):

No problemo, I got it covered, 14 days more to choose one. Thankfully, I am not one of those “Perfect”s. I can choose many things to change.

Dec 25th(11 AM):
Oh my god! Just a week away, I am yet to decide on my New Year Avatar. As everyone else, I can improve myself if I use this resolution fever. Maybe if I just focus on my shortfalls, I can find it.
(11. 10AM):
Woohoo, Kungfu Panda on TV.. I will choose one right after the film.

Dec 27th (7 PM):
I have to choose one right now. NO PROCRASTINATION. Ok right after the ice cream that I have to search in the fridge.

8 PM:
Ice cream and the phone call.
9 PM:
Ice cream, the phone call and the Film.
11 PM:
Ice cream, the phone call and the Film and the urm… other stuff.. But it is now too late to think and I am tired too. And to think of future one needs to be in an energetic mode.

Dec 30th (6 PM):
After many days from the day that I decided to think on the topic and 1000 times questioned, I have to find the one resolution out. (I am putting on my thinking face)
(6.02 PM):
Hey why dont I see what resolutions my friends have posted on Facebook! I will get better ideas!

(9.02 PM):
Seriously this idea is not working. Maybe I should ask them. And do not think I would choose to while away time by speaking to them, I will text them. I have a mission in hand, I wont focus on chatting with them.
(11.02 PM):
%*&$# these guys are of no use. Wasting my time. There went my two hours. Maybe today is just not my day.

Dec 31st 2012 (9 PM):
No more Facebook, No more Mobile. I am putting them away.
(Donning my Thinking face yet again)
ME: How about hitting the gym?
My alter ego: How many times have you had that resolution and have broken it?

ME: Ok forget it. How about going Vegan?
My alter ego: Think about all the cakes in the world
ME: How about..
My alter ego: Forget that, You would not keep up.

ME: I had not even completed saying it!
My alter ego: I can read your thoughts, right? Why do you think of “me me and only me”? It is time you tried to make adifference in the world.
ME: Wow! Ok, how about.. how about.. why cant… (falls asleep)

Jan 1st:
Every other earthling to me: Happy new year! So what is your resolution?
Me to Others:
Resolutions? ME? Just what are you implying? That I need to change? Well Buddy as far as I am concerned, I am perfect the way I am!

    hahaha this cracked me up! Yup I’m like that too that’s why I “start” the process in November so I can achieve “something” LOL and No you don;t need to change! You are wonderful the way you are πŸ™‚

    • Gayathri

      Starting in November for the year end makes so much sense. That way the chances of being successful are much better than.

    • Gayathri

      Well, I prefer making resolutions and then giving up totally. I mean why miss a chance to disappoint myself?

  2. Kristina

    awww xD well hey, no resolutions means you cannot fail them.. right ? πŸ˜˜β€‹

    I did put somes on my blog but ermmh… not going well so far x)

    • Gayathri

      That is the way we roll! πŸ˜›

  3. Andreea

    This was such a great post – I am still laughing!

    I have a hard time making resolutions too, I usually go for list of things to accomplish and I make one every year on my birthday (I don’t follow rules, ok?).

    • Gayathri

      As long as you keep up your resolutions, you can make them any day right?

  4. Zuzzi Na

  5. Megan @ Ginger Mom

  7. Ankita Singh

  8. Rachel Poli

    I absolutely love this! I think this is great. My “resolutions” for this year was for certain projects that I hope to have done by the end of the year. But I’m trying to be more social and have more of a life too.

    • Gayathri

      I can understand how the whole blogging and being everywheere on the internet can suck in one’s whole life, but hey I don’t have to worry about that. My books and I don’t really have a social life πŸ˜› All the best to your projects and having a life.

  9. Stacey

    My only resolution was to have a more fun year than last year. That’s it.

    • Gayathri

      That is the best thing to do!

  11. Mandi Schneck

    Haha I love this! I feel like New Years Resolutions are sometimes just unneeded extra stress!

    • Gayathri

      Exactly. I had been thinking only about resolutions yet didn’t finalize any.
