Word of the Day Wednesday: Resolution

By Doris Domingo

As 2015 is coming to an end, one word comes to my mind at this time of the year: Resolutions! New Year’s Resolutions.


The beginning of a new year is always an opportunity for a fresh start. Many people come up with a list of self-improvement objectives to achieve during the following year. A classic example is “join a gym,” and other popular ones are “reading more books” (I confess this one it’s on my list) or “saving money.”

Writing the list is fun, you can come up with original or challenging resolutions such as “learning something completely new,” and this can be a language, a sport or a new hobby. Or you can add a very positive and simple action that can change your year ahead: “laugh more often.”

But be aware! Writing the list is easy, however the harder part is to maintain the resolutions throughout the year and keep the motivation to achieve your goals. So what are you waiting for? Get some paper and a pen and start your list of New Year’s Resolutions for 2016! Happy New Year!
