New year Resolutions


As New Year arrives people tend to adopt many resolutions and try to follow them. The number of resolutions may vary. Some feel they are too perfect to make any resolutions, some do not believe in waiting for a new year to make resolutions. Some make a single resolution and see that they follow it throughout the year and also thereafter. Some have a list of resolutions which they try to attempt and succeed in few or all of them.  Some make a resolution not to make any resolutions.

I also made only one resolution this New Year and that was to make a list of resolutions for my son. And when my son asked the count, I told that they are only few and remaining to follow the next year. Here is the list handed over to him. Some are too specific but some are generic in nature. I wish if he follows any 10 of them, it will be a Happy New Year!
