Resolutions are made to be broken!!

A year has always been an excellent yardstick.We are in the right frame of beginning something fresh.
A year presents you enough time to plan and take on a resolution or set a goal for yourselves.Indeed... What say????
This New Year's January is bidding a goodbye to us with just few more days to go and I guess so does our New year's Resolutions too which started with all the pomp and excitement.This time
Our resolution is not gonna break and this was firm thought on the very first day of the year.
Do you also subscribe to the philosophy that resolutions are made to be broken.Most of us take on the
resolution and start with good intentions, however,we don't follow through and see our goals to the

Some of the most famous resolutions are of "loosing their weight" or "saying goodbye to their laziness" and then
there are some determined to "quit smoking or any other such bad habit" and so many more resolutions like this
those started with good intentions and firm attitude but unfortunately soon ends up in the trash bin.The sheer
numbers of these broken resolution every year made me to think deep..

The firm resolution of making excercise and yoga a part of the daily
regime seem to have come to an end though it started with all the firmness and believe that this time it wont break into pieces like before."I will take care of my health now onwards" and
"I will excerise daily." or "M gonna quit smoking for sure." and many more words like this but alas!!!
This has happened before too.Last year some of the similar words came out of the mouth but didn't last for long and this year too nothing's changed.Most of the resolutions break!! Thats a pretty much known fact.I probably think the reason behind these so many 
unsuccessful resolutions is the weak foundations of these promises.The explanation for this remarkable failure
rate is quite simple: "Humans are creatures of Habits." Our bad habits become a part of our nature and its nearly impossible to overcome these with taking on resolutions every newyear alone.When we set any resolutions an enormous amount of will-power is required.Ofcourse we want a good and ideal lifestyle and a better attitude.
Though we surely want to take on the good habits and follow them in our lives but we badly fail when it comes
to quit the bad habits.Actually Bad habits fix themselves with all their roots into our lives and to pull them out and throw away overnight is just not possible.We need to take baby steps with firm determination.The key is to make any goal a habit first that too a tiny one.
You know why this is so hard to over throw our bad habits from our lives because these 'Bad Habits keep on
following you as a option.' They are always available as a choice we can make any moment.

There's certainly no issue in making resolutions,but what is necessary is to make them successful with a
will power of not ending them up in mid.For this first and all we need to make ourselves ready for the
same.Before taking on any resolutions we need to analyze our willingness to take it and ask ourselves some 
of the very important questions like "What we think about resolution we're making?" "What is our willingness rate
and hopes on accomplishing it?" "Are we just going along with the crowd or do we really want to take it?"
An interospection is very much required.It is also said The more you make resolutions,the lesser are the chances to accomplish them successfully.Infact, we should take on an attainable resolution which we think would be easy for us to continue with.If we are gonna take a lofty goal that we're not confident enough to achieve them,we might end up giving up because eventually we will either feel so overwhelmed or frustrated about it in the long run.Secondly I feel we need to cut off the choice or option of reverting back to the bad habbit.Like if 
you have thought of quiting smoking, a cigratte infront of you should never be a option.Cut off all the choices
and circumstances that allure you to get back on those bad habits.When your heart knows that there's no option
or choice left,it accepts the things that are infront of it.

Resolution is a energy- a energy of the soul,heart and mind all together that works in your innerself in the direction
that leads you to the path of accomplishment of the goal that you have set for your ownself.So if you have planned that you will excercise daily,you know that there's no option.You have to do it at any cost.But remember,to take on a resolution that is abstract or unattainable for you is similar to hit a dart in the darkness.Analyze and weigh 
your goal and then head on towards accomplishing it with  a firm and determined attitude.

Life is an interesting journey full of endless seasons accompanied with highs and lows,
lights and shadows.At times we encounter prickly diffs and other times we cherish green
pastures.But friends life never stops for anyone or anything.It is a story with no 'THE END'
It is going on and on.Every year brings us the pack of 12 months starting with new years morning
and ending in new years' eve.A time of beginnings and endings, a time of celebrations, a time of togetherness,a time for some nostalgia and some new hopes.
In this span of 12 months we taste the flavors of every emotions: Happiness,
disappoinment,success and failures,setbacks and gains,fun and despair.Its like each and every day of the year begins with new opportunity,challenges and promises and ends in new and even bigger dreams,hopes and longer to-do-lists..It sure is a great time of the year.
#TALESOF2015 gave me a chance of retrospection of the year 2015.And I sit down with my notepad open and stare the all-white fresh unsaved file lost in rewinding the videos of the gone events of 2015.Every detail etched in my memory
moving like a slideshow of photograph on a big cinema.

The year started with new hopes,aspirations and challenges as usual.Last year January was much colder than this year.Februray came in with harshness.Yes,My best friend lost her father who was fighting illness past 6 months.Uncle was a father-figure to me.It was a tough time for my bestie and
I was there for her and supported her with fortitude in this adversity.I saw her breaking into pieces and stooping & falling down and I also witnessed her gradually standing up high.It was indeed a big loss.But life moves and so does we.

Months passed and I looked forward to the new shades of the season.In May,I along with my family went on a trip to Haridwar and Rishikesh to seek piousness in the Dev lok.It was indeed a worthful religious trip which brought me closer to Mother Nature.I experienced religiosity and piousness of River Ganga and witnessed the grandeur of the holy Ganga. Nature is unbeatable and its magnificence is uncomparable.There is for sure some power which is the source of life on this Earth and that power is present as faith towards the Almighty in our Hearts.I too witnessed our ingratitude and ungratefulness towards Nature when I saw the immensely poor and dirty Ghats.Sight of pollution in the river was horrible!How ignorant we as Human beings are when it comes to Nature.We take itfor granted and do not have any sense of responsibility towards taking care of Nature.but all in all a religious trip near God and Nature it was!!
Oh my goodness! After three months Luckily I again with my family went on holidays and this time it was South.What a fun trip it was!! A long holiday of two weeks made all of us rejuvenated and fresh.From the sight of innumerable, long coconut tress on the roadsides in
kerala to mouth watering Southern delicacies (shambhar,dosa,vada) all were a paradise,watching the splendid views of sunrise to sunset in Kanyakumari,getting into streamers on a round of the vast ocean.Walking along the sea shores and the images of clear blue waters,white sand,
big palm trees and huges waves crashing against rocks again and again all were a treat to the eyes.The rhythmic pounding of the waves comforted me.
This exposure to Southern cities their culture,cuisines,beautiful sites and places on this trip was awesome and joyful.how cool and exhilarating!

One of the more highlighted event inmy life this year was exploring a brandnew passion in me.Yes Blogging happened .Positive Vibes became a positive part of my life.
To me this year.Its not that passion
for blogging came in me all of a sudden.Actually,it was always there but in a dormant condition and my inclination towards writing was a impromptu spur to blog.
In fact, I am to confess something here through blogging I got a chance to enter the world of Blogging which fascinated me thoroughly and attracted me.I was
introduced to this world on BLOGADDA which indeed took me to the ever-exciting Blogging world where thousands of more people like me are following their
passion of Blogging.I got to know the 'Happy Blogging' concept here.Though I am a pro blogger,I got a chance to be a part of BlogAdda in December.
BlogAdda gave me a platform and my presence over there inspired and encouraged me even more to follow my heart and keep up my Blogging passion.As they say,
It only takes a spark to get the fire going.This is something I do for myself.I gain a peace of mind when I write blogs and it is the time of joy.
As I say, 'Writing is a celebration to me.'Blogging surged in me more energy,born of excitement and anticipation.

These were some of the highlighted events of my life this year.I never favor Looking Back but this time Looking Back
and Recalling the highlights of 2015 through TALESOF2015 made me happy and emotional too.While I entered the year 2016 leaving behind the gone days,
I welcome the year with new hopes and more aspirations and expectations and the challenges the year brings in ahead.If I talk about my resolutions this year which I promised
myself to follow throughout sincerely.My prime resolution this year is to spread love.With my experience, though a small one,I learnt a ultimate lesson
of life and that is 'There is nothing in this world but Love.' Love is the only truth and should be our only desire.I promised myself I will love everything
around The mighty Nature,its human beings and animals.Life is too short to live with hatred and grudges for anyone or anything.
"Life a lamp, Love is its oil
which burns & illuminates us.
Life a cake, sugar is the Love
which sweetens us.
When thorns of desperate pricks,Love presents roses of hope
which soothes us."
Love is happiness,strength and power.Spreading Love is my resolution this year.

Next and the last resolution this year
is to get rid of my lazy habbit. Sometimes I am too lazy and I put important tasks pending.I would definetly change this laid-back attitude.This attitude sometimes becomes a cause of  stress and restlessness in me.Nevertheless,I follow my heart and I would surely keep my resolutions and make sure they doesn't break.

Ahhhh! I guess I have written a bit long but it was indeed fun journeying the memory lane and recollecting the gone laughter,pain,memories and happiness
and briefing all of them here with to figure out the learnt lessons from these insightful experiences.

Each experience- good or bad -Is like a paper boat in this ocean called life to take us through its vastness, and while we jump from one boat to another,Lets thrive to be a fearless bird that carries love and only love in it's heart.

 Smiles from the threshold of the year to come,
 Whispering it will be happier.." -Alfred Lord Tennyson

Writing for #TALESOF2015 was truly an enlightening, enriching and an
exciting experience for me.
