I made two RESOLUTIONS in 2014.
1. Drink alcohol only odd-numbered months. That means that I resolved (decided firmly) to abstain (not drink alcohol) in February, April, June, August, October and December. I succeeded in February, June, Ocotober and then this month December. However, I failed in April. I couldn't help but drink at the beginning of GW (Golden Week) a couple of times. And then in August we took a trip for ten days to the Touhoku area and it was impossible for me not to drink on this vacation. The result was that I did a lot of work, I also kept my weight in check (down). I am pretty pleased with the results.
2. Quit complaining about "bad" drivers. I like to complain. Just ask my wife. And I used to (before, but not now) complain about other people who drove their cars badly, in my opinion. I would say "He is driving too fast" or "She drove through the red light" or "He/She is using a phone while driving." And little by little my lovely wife started to say similar things. It sounded very bad coming form her. So, I thought it must sound bad coming form me, too. So I decided to stop complaining.
There are some other things I would like to "resolve" such as my character. But, some things are very difficult to change. As we say in English "You can't teach an old dog new tricks." But, I'll try.
