What a year 2019 was! However clich\u00e9 resolutions sounded, I made them in 2018. You kinda do these things subconsciously, you just avoid calling them that word\u2026 re... yes that word. But let\u2019s call them plans. And by the way, Y\u2019all better stop acting as though this wasn\u2019t the in thing a couple of years back when you actually looked cool making them. So in my quest trying to keep up with times, I made resolutions almost every year. But on this particular year, things were different. I read somewhere that failing to plan is planning to fail. I\u2019d later realise you can actually plan and fail seriously, and can just flow without plan and that doesn\u2019t automatically attract failure. Someone just sat down and decided those words sit pretty in the same sentence, nothing deep. Question is just how many resolves I actually managed to keep. So? Oh yes, so I just counted them on my left hand\u2019s fingers and guess what? I didn\u2019t need all the fingers. Then I realised\u2014 this year (it might have taken a while, but the point\u2019s home now).\u00a0 This planning for the year thing is a jinx, issa curse people! The moment you put that resolve word before whatever plan you have for the year, you\u2019re doomed. At least, I realised those words come with a certain craving (ahoo! to pregnant women in the house) to do the exact opposite of whatever resolve. But don\u2019t just take my words for it. So this certain year, I planned to eat healthier. You know, cut off some things that weren\u2019t good for me.\u00a0 I almost made it to the end of the week. Over the years the harder I tried losing weight, the more I gained it. Then I realised just how powerless I was about some of these things I was advised to avoid, hmm this beer!\u00a0 My serious kryptonite. Another year I decided since these diet plans were just not my thing, exercise should and would do. So I subscribed to this gym a few metres from home. It should be easy, right? Yeah, I was so psyched up at first that I even had a gym partner, well, for some weeks, two weeks I guess. Months later, I learned from a watchie that \u2018my\u2019 gym had closed. Yani I was so irrelevant they didn\u2019t notify me where or when they moved. This year, I\u2019ll let things flow with conviction that it won\u2019t get bumpy along the way. But if I was to make any plans, I\u2019m sure I\u2019d keep, it would be to stock up as much castle light (rare brand in most joints) as I can get my hands on. I know I have a good shot at keeping that one. But I made one so far, to \u2018never ever make resolutions\u2019, I\u2019ll sure keep this one!
