Promises to oneself

Promises to oneself


It’s almost time for this year to roll down the lane and make way for the new year to come in and settle down. It’s a time to review oneself and see that if resolutions made in the previous year have been kept. Making a resolution is something common and very easy to do, but keeping it is something that most of us fail to do, most of the times.
In the beginning of each year, everyone is excited and want to do new things, set goals for themselves, turn a new leaf and become a better person.

After January passes by and the novelty wears off, resolutions too weaken.
L Harini, a final year B Sc student from MES College, says, “During the beginning of every year, I make plans to wake up early and set aside a slot just for studying. After a few days, when many other things start coming in and my schedule becomes heavy, I slowly stop keeping track of the resolution. I wake up late and eventually, the resolution goes unfulfilled.”

Most youngsters are of this opinion. They say they would make all kinds of resolutions and follow it with enthusiasm.
After a few days, they can hardly remember the resolution they had kept.
Shirley Rose Louis, a second year PCME student, from Mount Carmel College says, “I keep many resolutions every year, usually I think of studying hard for long hours and score good marks, but then I get bored of it after a point of time and I am not able to stand by them.” At the same time, there are some people who do keep their resolutions, Arvind N, a second year B Com student from Seshadripuram College, says, “I had kept a resolution last year that I will ride my bike a little slowly and that I will lose at least ten kilos. I managed to do both. I feel very happy about it now when I think about it,” he says.

Kusuma B G, a final year B.Sc (Computer Science) student, says, “Trying to change old habits and creating new ones is something which I try to do every year. Doing well in exams is the only resolution I make and I try to keep it every year, even though it is difficult.”
