What is a resolution and What effect does it have on a person.


A resolution is a reason or change in someones life either a new choice or path that you choose to make in your life. These are moments of reflection and when and why they take place is individual .

To quote Wikipeidia

New Year's resolution is a commitment that a person makes to one or more personal goals, projects, or the reforming of a habit. A key element to a New Year's resolution that sets it apart from other resolutions is that it is made in anticipation of the New Year and new beginnings. People committing themselves to a New Year's resolution generally plan to do so for the whole following year. This lifestyle change is generally interpreted as advantageous.
