Resolutions Or Imagination

Maybe I have a very strange way of thinking, but I hate to hear people talk about New Year's resolutions. Probably my dislike comes from knowing that most resolutions are not kept and they always concern issues people should be doing anyway. I have heard people state they would give up drinking, fast regularly, stop smoking, daily read the Bible, never eat chocolate again, and more. Well, if drinking is a problem in your life, it should not take a New Year for you to correct it. Obviously, when people state a resolution, it is an area in which they struggle. So where does "imagination" come into all this? Here's my thought - if people would take the focus off their weaknesses and transfer that energy into imagining something they could do that would make a difference in the world they live in, they would become so busy with the "new idea" that their struggles would be forgotten and gone. So if there is something you wish to rid in your life, start creating, imagining, and let your mind race with positive inventions. The positive mind set will enforce the good things you need to do and completely black out the negative issues. Take a few minutes and let your imagination soar.


  1. This made me think of a couple of quotes that saw earlier;

    "A New Year's resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other." - Unknown author

    Six out of 10 Americans surveyed said lack of motivation and power have prevented them from keeping their past New Year's resolutions. - Source:
