Salams,

Anyone make any resolutions? I actually do think they kind of help. I have one friend who makes these big signs and posts them around her room like "Stop WASTING TIME!" etc. I wonder if it helps?

Here's mine for this year:

- Read Quran on Fridays at least an hour.

- Fast either mon or thurs of each week.

- Go to all events/parties/get out of the house instead of skipping them.

- Give concentrated quality time to projects.

- Go shopping more looking for bargains.

Walaikum Asalaam ...

I didn't really mean to ..but now I am thinking I should try, it's a new month? a new year? a new week? However you want to classify time I guess.

Well a few weeks ago I decided I'd try being more besharam (the meaning of this word might vary with people) but I meant it in the sense of doing what I want instead of always doing what other people want me to do. My mom laughed and said great you're already starting your 2011 resolutions and then she and my aunt said I'd fail at that, but I'll try anyway :|

And today I decided I'd ... try taking care of my health InshaAllah. (This seems to be an on and off thing...)

But mashaAllah Jannah, you have good resolutions, have you already started any?

lol, oh I am not sure how to explain now ... it's more like being stubborn and persistent? ...but yeah defffff need to concentrate on physical and spiritual development inshaAllah.

I already got chips and cookies today but yay that you went out when you didn't want to! lol

the besharam concept exists in the US as well?

Lol now it does ...

but seriously where I come from I think it's a little different than how Desi's use it ..but I may be confused.

Do you have any resolutions Br Akhan?

Assalamo elikuim

Sr.Nafs , I think that word that you are looking for is "dheet" which means stubborn Smiley

My new year resolutions , which unfortunately I have already broken are
1)Sleep atleast or more than 6 hour at night.
2)Slow down, really slow down instead of runing around all the time.
3)Read more Quran and with meaning everytime .


Wasalam

No Sr Nafs,I never make new year resolutions.If I need to do something I try to start doing it then and there,waiting for the new year seems to be childish.

No one waits for the new year bro! It is just a time of change, a mark on the calendar from where we can start anew. Just like everyone makes resolutions before Ramadan on what they hope to accomplish. Without goals and renewal we would always remain stagnant. It's nice that you can "just start doing something just like that" but the rest of us are mere mortals that need to create our own motivations!! oldshaykh
