There are a couple of things, not exactly resolutions, that I would like to have done in the coming year: travel to India (Himachal Pradesh and Uttaranchal) in April/ May and maybe travel again to India (Calcutta-Sikkim-Bhutan) before end of year. I need to also find a new job before the end of 2007. Plus, I would really like to have completed my second book and self-publish it, but then that depends on how far I go with the writing.
1. Get fit and go to the gym more.
2. Travel more within the UK. I won't be able to go overseas for a couple of years but there are still plenty of places I haven't been. eg York- its only 60 miles away and I've never been!
3. Join a walking group- especially seeing as I live so close to the Peak District.
4. Find a boyfriend.
Every year when I make new year resolutions it doesn't survive very long. I think it's just something people do to make a fresh start. On 4 January you forgot it. For me, more sport, less drinking, no smoking until 4 January.
I've never bothered with resolutions but this year I'll make an exception;
1) Loose a bit of weight just by eating better.
2) Quit my job and go to NZ and then Australia.
I'll try to remember this thread for 12 months time and I'll post back how I've done.
I definitely need to stick to that less sugar resolution. I just ate a baklava and one of those almond-paste things that are covered in icing suar. Urp.
Hehe, last year my wife and me had a resolution to try and be on time more often. We're always one of those couples that says 'see you at 7' and then arrive at 7.30. Good thing most of our friends know us and are cool with this (otherwise they probably would go crazy at this), but I think we did a little better in 2006.
My resolution for 2007. Try and figure out how to be a good dad
My resolution for 2007 is to not have any
I want to be moved into my dream city by the end of 2007, I want to be moved into Prague, Czech Republic
maybe....maybe stop smoking. maybe. yeah. maybe. don't know. difficult. maybe. but maybe not. difficult. will see. probably. try to do my best. or.
I told myself that my last trip would be the end of my smoking and then met several people on my travels who told me about a book called "The Easy Way to Quit Smoking". Okay, so I was home for a while before I got my act together, but I finished the book on Dec. 29 and so far so good. Who knows if it will hold, but I think I'm finally "ready" this time. Good luck to the rest of you. And Happy New Year.
Looks like most people are either hoping to get fitter or to quit smoking.
Both are hard and definitely require perseverance!
Hope the passion to realise both got fired up already for all (whoever's resolutions apply )
Of course, personally I would love to do more travelling!
