*I accidently put 'be/act more mature' twice - my bad !

I've made quite a few resolutions this year .. hopefully i'll achieve them by the end of 2013 . The ones in the picture aren't my own resolutions , but these are ones I saw other people trying to achieve by the end of this year . The book I used is actually a diary I got so I could write down the foods I eat because i'm trying to be more healthy (:
This is a different type of picture , I did the obvious editing of the lists over the diary on purpose but ah well , i'm still just experimenting .
What are your new year resolutions ?
I found out as a fact that 80% of people fail their resolutions each year , oh well .

Actually, there is a difference between being and acting mature. Acting mature is either pretending to be mature, or only being mature at certain times, like in public or whatever; whereas BEING mature is where your in a mental state of maturity, and you're mature naturally.

Interesting idea - this showing resolutions. And you know, one may as well put "be" and "act" more maturely as separate things because being and acting are not the same! :)

I myself do not make resolutions but my grandma and mum told me I should make a list of wishes until January 1st, 9 p.m. because supposedly all wishes would come true. I don't believe it but still made a long list of wishes just for fun. A lot of them were like "Be happy", "Others should be happy", many were more concrete and were like "Find a girlfriend", "Finish exams successfully", "Win a contest", etc. and some were like "Smile much", "Laugh much", etc.

Actually, I could check whether any are fulfilled. *checks* Ok, it seems that four are more or less fulfilled:
- "Fix health (at least to the point where it doesn't disturb)". I have one health problem but I started taking medicine and I may just be keeping it somewhat at bay.
- "Do good deeds". Well, I picked up a ring for a girl, helped my dad carry the wood, etc. Well, it's something but maybe I should have wished for more. :D
- "Smile much". I seem to be smiling a lot recently, and I was surprised at myself having a smirk while washing dishes, I'm even a bit smiling right now. What the heck? :D
- "Successfully fly home and then back". The planes were late but at least I wasn't late and managed to fly back with just small delays. I call this success. :)

I still don't say I believe in this wish stuff. But it's cool to look at it like it is working. And I hope it was interesting for you to read this. :D

I don't really believe in wishes either . I .. I think it's nice to believe in them , but I don't think they come true . Anyway , I like your resolutions a lot (: I hope you meet them by the end of this year . "Do good deeds" was one of my one as well . I feel like I do too much for myself these days and I should start doing selfless things to others . 2 days ago I brought a sandwich for a homeless person which made me feel so much better for helping someone . I love the feeling of helping people , just makes me feel like such a better person .

There's something I do each year though . I have a big jar , and throughout the year I write good things that happen to me and achievements and I put them into the jar . Then on December 31st , I open the jar and read all the good things that happened to me last year . I've been doing it for 4 years now and it gives me something to look foward to on new year's eve .

Aww, thank you for the kind words. :aww: And I hope you meet your resolutions.

Wow, I'm impressed. I could do something like this, too, some time! I'm not sure why I myself want to help people. In many cases, I guess I just want people to like me and feel thankful towards me. "Thank you very much" may just be the most beautiful phrase for me, not "I love you" which I hear a lot and I doubt its sincerity... :D But even if people didn't reward me with appreciation (but it considerably motivates me), I still feel I want others to be happy, too. I want to contribute, I want to hold hands with everyone and walk into the sunset... :D Maybe it is engrained by the society, maybe it is empathy, maybe it is love, maybe it is "Happiness is only real when shared" (you may want to use this quote, it's from the film "Into the wild"), maybe it is all together. :)

I like this idea. I'm considering doing the same. Though, I feel there may be just too many things to write. :D Not that I'm that happy. It's because I have always been that unhappy so I started appreciating the smallest of things like someone smiling at me or getting at least a passing grade. :D

These are some really great resolutions, I wish you luck on them n_n
As for me, my resolutions consist of being happier and a little bit more secure with myself, where I'm more comfortable in my own skin. I'm also hoping to be more involved with things this year, being less worried/stressed all the time, and to inspire more people! I want to do the things I love and not regret so much and to not focus too much on future things like I do a lot of the time now haha Another thing is I want to get better grades but like that will happen xD
I guess to sum it up, I want to be less of a disappointment and more of someone that people can look up to.

what about this resolution:
Be happy with the way you are,
not more, harder or better.
Just enough to be yourself!

I this this is the first year I haven't really thought up what would be good resolutions for me. Strange really because I have basically done this every year thus far... Then again, the end of last year was really busy and stressful and uncertain and when Christmas came I didn't even feel Christmas because I was too worried about being part of the colleagues who were going to be made redundant. Only just a day or two before Christmas I heard that I could stay with the company and then I had to switch into Christmas mood real abruptly (which sort of happened I think, although this Christmas wasn't so much like other Christmasses. :/ ) -- aaanyway, I decided that I would instantly activate a resolution when I would run into something of which I think "oh, I shouldn't do that", or "do that differently". I mean, basically you can start a good habit anytime, right? ;)

Only "be more mature" and "act more mature" seem to be the same thing … But overall I really like this. My resolutions are listed in my latest journal.

Do homework the day it's set is the only one I've bothered making, but I know already that I'll break it. I'm the type of person to leave it 'til the night before.... procrastinating is something I should really work on haha. Nevertheless, good luck with yours! I hope you become one the 20% to not break your resolutions!

That's what I'm like. It's always one of my targets in my homework diary (because we have to make 3 targets for every term T.T) to be efficient with work. So at the beginning of year 10 I managed to avoid the computer... then got hooked on three or four TV programmes /fail.
