Do you think making a new years resolution means you have regrets?
I have made resolutions in the past, some tangible and some not. But, then I begin to wonder what this says about our feelings about our life and our past.
Sometimes yes. It is seeing what you could have done better, not entirely regrets, and working to improve it. It depends on the situations and what you believe about them.
No I don't think it has much to do with regrets as much as it does with the "psychological" feeling of having a (fresh start).
Just like businesses most people want to improve over the past year. We set new goals for ourselves. If things didn't go well for us in the previous year we mentally tell ourselves that the new year will be much better and the reason why is because we are going make some changes or take what we learned and apply it.
When it's all said and done life is about learning and improving. As humans we need something to strive for. "A life without dreams isn't living, only existing."
In my mind a New Year's resolution does not signify a regret, per se, but rather that there is still room in my life for improvements. :0)
Happy new year's to all !!!!!!!
I don't like the word regret. I prefer to use the word goal. Regrets are in the past , goals, hopes, desires are the future.
Recently I have been reading a great deal about positive thinking and I now refuse to dwell on the past. I can't change anything that happened, I can only change my present and my future.
Some people spend so many waking hours worrying about things out of their control and as such, miss living.
Happy New Year.
Hmm, I don't believe so.
I've started making monthly 'resolutions.' They're more like habits or self-motivated challenges, really, which help me steward my resources well. For instance, in November, I joined with thousands of writers and participated in NaNoWriMo and wrote a novel in 30 days. In December, I started exercising every day, as well as completed (or, I should say, started) an extensive research project on my family's history. This month, my goal was to get a job (which I've already done), to consistently journal, to continue exercising, and to begin practicing my musical instruments again. By forming these habits at various times of the year, I avoid the pitfalls of most resolutions by consistently evaluating myself on a regular basis.

As the old saying goes: "If you fail to plan, you plan to fail". That, in part, is why I believe in making New Years resolutions. However, I think they should be simple, no more than three in number, and should be major goals that you wish to achieve before you die. Anyway, here is my...
