New Year’s Resolutions

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Now that we’ve had at least two dozen holiday cookies, a pan of figgy pudding, and more turkey and ham than we can stand, 2013 awaits. A lot of great things happened in 2012: #1, the world did not end on December 21st as a few predicted from the end of the Mayan calendar. And, so, that means we have more work to do on Earth, pursuing betterment within, garnering more dreams, attaining more goals, spreading lots of love and hopefully meeting more caring, warm hearts willing to help along the way.

We asked readers to share with us some of their New Year’s resolutions for 2013 to inspire and keep the season of giving and joy rolling along nicely into January and beyond. Happy New Year!

Darien Brooks
Darien Brooks I resolve to read, write more poetry in 2013, plus play more music and write a new novel.

Chardon Louisa Murray
I’m going to stop procrastinating so much—but I don’t know…I might put that resolution off until next year.

Jennifer Farmer Barnett
I plan on reading “My One Word: Change Your Life With Just One Word” by Mike Ashcraft and Rachel Olsen.You choose just one word that represents what you most hope God will do in you, and focus on it for an entire year. My pastor at Port City Community Church wrote it. It is an awesome way to grow from the inside out.

Fred Champion
I want to gain 10 pounds, start smoking again, give up sobriety, and try local, homemade street drugs. Codeine … bourbon.

Alisha Lee Payne
I’m really going to try to turn that bathroom light off. I feel like it’s on all the time when no one is in there.

Becky Mills
As I am tired of labels, fear, hate, and shallow people, I want to kindly exempt these types from my life in 2013. Since I vocalized my liberal views before the election, most of the above mentioned have already de-friended me. I thank them for their clarification. My resolution is to rise above the minutia and try to see the greater good in life. (Okay, and I also want to lose 20 lbs!)

Vickie Thompson
I’m really going to stay out of my bedroom so much. Since I got my computer, that’s all I do. Don’t even like talking on the phone anymore. LOL

Gloria Hinkle Vaughn
As always, try to live healthier…

Rachael Tartell
I’m going to floss more. Also drink more water.

Kris Asher
I always resolve not to make resolutions….and succeed every year.

Heather Divoky
To finish at least one art series next year, and successfully complete all of my art shows!

Shea Carver
To challenge myself for a calmer, more meditative state of being—and hopefully without less coffee.

Bambi Weavil
Pay off debt, have more fun, kick more ass (making more of a difference).

Jay Edge
Run more work less and spend more time naked.

Michelle Li
Putting my mental and physical health first!

Shawna Kenney
