HOTEL worker Luwil Bentillo said he will abandon his bad habits this year.
On his Facebook page, the 24-year-old mass communication graduate said, “Kung unsa man gani imong New Year’s resolution, makahimo ni nimo nga better person ug mopalig-on kini sa imong prinsipyo sa kinabuhi (Your New Year’s resolutions strengthens your principles and make you a better person).”
He vows to spend on things that are important, save money for his wedding and work harder.
“Maayo gyud ning naa kay New Year’s resolution kay naghatag kini kanimo og mission nga kinahanglan nimo tumanon,” he said.
Bentillo said 2013 was a difficult year for his family. He said their house near Carbon Public Market was lost to fire and his brother got ill.
But his family stayed strong and surpassed the challenges, he said.
In an article posted at the United States Government’s website, the most popular New Year’s resolutions include losing weight, volunteering to help others, quitting smoking, getting a better education, getting a better job, saving money, getting fit, eating healthy food, managing stress, managing debt, taking a trip, reducing, reusing and recycling, and drinking less alcohol.
Cebu City Councilor Alvin Dizon said “it is desirable to have resolutions, especially if these are anchored on strong commitments to fulfill them.”
He said resolutions should also benefit the community, “not only ourselves.”
“As a public servant I will endeavor to sponsor local legislations that will benefit more the vulnerable sectors in our city,” he said through Facebook. “We hope to pass on the creation of the anti discrimination commission next year.”
He said his legislation will address human rights issues in the following sectors: people with disability (PWD), elderly, lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and transgender community, women, and ethnic groups.
For call center worker Demilyn Fat, 21, creating a list of what to change in her life is important because it guides her on what to accomplish.
