The ringing in of the New Year causes a lot of Ghanaians to reflect on their lives and possibly try to amend their very distorted ways and telling their friends the very popular phrase “New Year, New Me’’.

However, when the clock strikes midnight and the praises and worship has been done it is back to the same old routine of the previous year.
These are just some of the promises some Ghanaians tend to make but never ever fully keep:
1. Attend Church Every Sunday.
Of course this will be the resolutions of a lot of Ghanaians since their conscience cannot bear being away from Church for that considerable amount of time but after a month or two well they throw in the towel and instead opt for the cool warm embrace on their mattresses.
2. Remove all the negative influences in my life
This is a very broad scope of things one would want to correct and it is most likely the Dalai Lama who can do this. We make such promises but that very weekend you find yourself surrounded by this same ‘Negative’ influence which is just a vague way of saying you want to get rid of your influential friends.

3. Stop watching adult films
Ladies and Gents, the 21st century is plagued with an entire technological sphere where immoral content thrives and unless you intend to block it all by not going through social media feeds then this resolution is a hard one to beat. You’ve prayed to God to change you yet you can’t seem to emancipate yourself. All we have to say is ‘good luck with that’.
4. Listen to more gospel
We are fully aware that this will be one that will slip your mind even on a Sunday.
5. Enough with the one night stands
The order of the day in recent times is about intercourse and it has become even more casual than brushing your teeth. Beware the ‘fuckboys and girls’ but during the lonely nights and hours you just can’t help yourself to a little sugar.
6. Go to the gym
One essential message is that going to the gym once a week and eating whatever you like after is no healthy way of living, you are rather circling back to the beginning and undermining your efforts.
7. Eating healthy
As Ghanaians we do love our meat, pastries and the alcohol and making a resolution to not do it seems a tad difficult for the average Ghanaian since ones budget can say otherwise.
8. Learning hard
A personal struggle for most and the distractions of your phone, laptop and friends will make this resolution even harder.
9. Finding “The One”
Ladies you can’t find the one if you are constantly rejecting those that try to be the one, changing your outlook would be a better resolution and one you can actually stick to but as per usual you can’t resist the advances of guys who are just the ‘Hit and run’ type.
