What’s your New Years Resolution?
Wishing you all a Happy New Year!
Each year, I continue to make New Years Resolutions (yes, resolutionS..I can never pick just one) – inevitably by end of Jan they have been genuinely (or selectively) forgotten.
Not quite sure where the ‘resolution’ tradition originated, but I guess the intentions behind them are always good – with the fear of sounding like Dr Phil, I think they are a nice way to indulge in self-reflection and aim for self-improvement.
Whether it decided after one to many Captain Morgan’s or creating A3 mindmaps of ‘my life’ ….resolutions
.……and then there was my sister’s resolution which was downright hilarious…with such a concerned look on her face she proceeded to say “Nix, in 2013 I really want to start wearing more G-strings…I had way to many VPL (Visible Panty Lines) in 2012”..(she is a special one).
It is only fair that i divulge a few of my resolutions. My main one is also quite trivial, but necessary. I resolve to reduce the number of ‘high buns’ – no matter what, I can’t resist whipping my hair up into a ‘unicorn-like’ horn on the very top of my forehead. So yes, I need to start grooming my hair properly.
My standard ones included; to reduce/eradicate my ‘pet’ snake (names Rolanda) that lives around my waist (Rolanda LOVES Peanut M&Ms), to learn how to paint with watercolours & to become more involved in volunteering for The Angawadi Project – www.anganwadiproject.com (check it out it is amazing)
Apart of resolutions, the New Year also brings a new calendar year. Calendars need not be boring, but can be inspirational, innovative and intriguing. Check out some beautifully designed calendars below:

Ink Calendar: The ink will slowly color each day of the month as time passes. Yes, please.
