For the new year, I intend to focus my energy on the things that center me. In the little moments I will decipher what is best, from what is good. There is a lot of growing up still to be had. And I want the growing pains to be subtle, a wrinkle where there once was none, a new memory to keep my heart warm. Looking for the future is something I do at all times, but this year I will live now. I will open my eyes, breathe, and feel my life unfold around me. I will say yes!

Aja wald -December 23, 2013, 10:53AM

My New Years resolution is to be proactive. I want to go after the things that I want and make things happen this year. It will be a year of change and new things, a year to make the changes I have wanted for a while. I want to be proactive and make things happen instead of hoping things will just fall into place.

Lotta -December 23, 2013, 10:55AM

My New Year’s resolution is to start living for myself. It is so easy to go through life trying constantly to please others and to live by the expectations or values of others. I resolve to start living the life that is most meaningful to me, regardless of whether it is what others expect of me.

Resolution= Drink more Tea in twenty-fourTean.

Jessica Oliva -December 23, 2013, 11:41AM

In the year of 2012 a vowed to give myself the gift of altruism and solemnly swore to be kind to everyone no matter how much it hurt. I promised that I would make 2012 a year to give love and not let the grudges get to me. Just to let go of hate. That year was an amazing, eye opening adventure and I truly did love myself a lot more at the end of 2012. Although I opened my heart up tremendously, I did see a cycle behind my blinded love eyes of men, and some women, abusing my love. With your heart and hate on a balance beam, I chosen to look past the loving abuse. In 2013, I vowed that I would give my self, my love, more attention than I was giving people in the past. Throughout 2013…I’ve done that. I’ve stayed single and enjoyed the love I was allowing myself to have but I felt something missing. I can only guess it was my lack of loving I was out pouring to others like I had done religiously the previous year. In 2014, I’m going into a new year with a partner that I’m still not completely sure about. This year I want to incorporate my altruism and love for myself but mostly I want to make a list of multiple personal goals rather than a characteristic change. I want to learn to play the guitar, eventually play in a local coffee shop in Dallas, and eventually become a yoga teacher. That’s doable, right?

marissa -December 23, 2013, 11:43AM

my resolution is to be present in every moment and enjoy the journey to final destination!!

Sara Strauss -December 23, 2013, 11:44AM

Come 2014 I hope to build up the courage to write down my thoughts, every day. & I the strength to put myself first; to relax, take a step back & realize I can’t control every. single. thing.

Michelle -December 23, 2013, 11:52AM

Such a lovely kit! My resolution is to take more weekend trips. It clears your head and allows you to get away from everything for a bit.

Michaela -December 23, 2013, 11:52AM

My new years resolution is to find and maintain balance. Over this past year, I have managed to take control of my anxiety and it has truly changed my life and the way I function. However, without all that help, their are some things I need to do myself in order to fully maintain a fulfilled life. My goal when I say finding balance is to not overdo my schedule, find who I am, and balance the expectations in my head.

georgia -December 23, 2013, 11:53AM

my new year’s resolution is to go for it; go for anything. If i like a guy, i will make the first move. I will not care about how badly I paint, I’ll just paint because it’s fun. I will go on hikes in Oregon during break because I want to. I’ll sit down in the middle of the woods to write poetry. I want to be able to do something everyday that means something, even if its just spending a few minutes sketching in my notebook or taking time to read my favourite book. I want to do everything with confidence. I want to be able to wear weird pants and not care. So that’s why my new year’s resolution is to go for it. It means that I should just do things because I want to and not care what others will think of me. I should do things that I love to do without judgement. I’ll be able to really be myself.

Katie French -December 23, 2013, 11:59AM

My New Year’s resolution is to do more yoga routinely, more random acts of kindness, and to build more confidence to put my whole true self out there in order to meet new interesting people!

Isabelle -December 23, 2013, 12:03PM

Sloan -December 23, 2013, 12:36PM

My resolution is to be happy, alert, and loving to all. I find myself to get more concerned about the busy events in life and don’t take time to just be me and a happy me at that. I also want to take more time in the day to appreciate life and be more alert to things around me like the crisp winters air that is flowing through the air right now. Love and be loved is next for me. I seem to lose sight of the importants of that, letting people love me and I letting my self love them. 2014 will be a new beginning for all.

shannon butler -December 23, 2013, 12:38PM

my resolution is simply to have more courage. this leaks into all aspects of my life…quittting smoking is part of that, as well as looking into new art oppurtunities for me that may involve me moving my home and business. i also want to have more courage with love and be open to giving guys a chance that normally i would discount.

Grace Allen -December 23, 2013, 1:09PM

My New Year’s resolution: To resolve to travel, and gain a new perspective on my place in this world.

Ciera -December 23, 2013, 1:10PM

My new years resolution is to focus and appreciate the present. I have a tendency to either focus too much on the past or look too much into what is coming up next that I do not get the chance to “stop and smell the roses” and truly appreciate the beautiful things that are happening as they happen. I believe that if I can learn to do this I will be a much happier and more at peace with myself.

Zoe -December 23, 2013, 1:14PM

My new years resolution is to live a healthier lifestyle that is in touch with nature. I love living green, but with school I sometimes find it challenging and just go off the bandwagon, so, this year I resolve to not be lazy with this!

Ava -December 23, 2013, 1:14PM

My New Year’s Resolution is to take better care of myself – mind and body. Since starting college, it’s been difficult to make myself a priority. In the coming New Year, I have resolved to eat better, start practicing yoga again, and find time for myself to recharge my batteries.

Juulia -December 23, 2013, 1:20PM

My new year resolution is to find myself. Who I am, who I wanna be, who I don’t want to be. Living in the moment.

Janelle Andrea -December 23, 2013, 1:22PM

For 2014, I resolve to take an hour out of each day to do something that makes me happy. For me, that means taking an hour wherever I am, to take a few shots with my 35mm.

Savanah Alvarez -December 23, 2013, 1:24PM

My New Years resolution is to get rid of all the negativity in my life by becoming a better me in a more positive way. I have started by eating a healthier diet and being more active. I also am going to live life to the fullest and “just ride” in a sense so that everyday i have an amazing story to tell. I also am going to redecorate my dorm to become a more positive space for me to come home to. I have gotten so inspired by the free people blog to help me live my life so much happier.

April F. -December 23, 2013, 1:25PM

My resolution is to just BE. Everyday, everyone tells me what to do, what not to do, when to do it, how to do it. They put me down and tear me apart, and expect me to just stand there and take it with a smile on my face. Everything that I’ve ever loved or liked to do, I’m no good at… so I’m told. After years of this, I’m empty, I’m hollow, I’m barely a shell of my former self. All I want is to breathe and BE.

Hanna -December 23, 2013, 1:29PM

My resolution is to start more fully appreciating the way my body is, and to continue working out (more this year hopefully) to strengthen it even more

Gloria -December 23, 2013, 1:30PM

My resolution: trust others and trust myself

Francesca -December 23, 2013, 1:32PM

Be more patient with my sweet and aging parents. I often forget that as I’m growing older, so are they.

Miia Beshar -December 23, 2013, 1:33PM

to be thankful for every little thing life gives you. Both ups and downs. :)

Maddy -December 23, 2013, 1:40PM

I need to learn how to balance; how to balance my thoughts on bettering myself with thoughts on bettering the lives of those around me. Self-love fueling external love, and reflexively trusting the love of others as a positive reflection of shared energies.

Katie -December 23, 2013, 1:41PM

I’m entering the new year with the resolution to not wear any black clothing for the year! …May need to expand my wardrobe as it currently holds many black items. x

Laura -December 23, 2013, 1:41PM

Anna -December 23, 2013, 1:52PM

My resolution is to make more full use of my time. Its too easy to let the loose minutes slip past.

Kat -December 23, 2013, 1:52PM

My resolution is to change my language to help me change my attitude. No more saying “can’t” and “don’t”. I can and I will.

Marielle Torrefranca -December 23, 2013, 1:53PM

My New Years’ resolution is to continue my inner adventure with being happy with what I have and wanting less. After years of depression and episodes of pessimism, I recently discovered that sometimes, the secret to happiness is looking at what you have around you and learning to love it. This mindset is most certainly helping and I’m hoping to find myself and my true place more in the new year.

Lena -December 23, 2013, 1:57PM

My new years resolution is to get back in touch with everyone who was once a much bigger part of my life and to try and keep my emotions and habits in a more peaceful balance

Katherine -December 23, 2013, 1:58PM

challenge myself
live in the present
exude warmth and light

Katie -December 23, 2013, 2:02PM

My new years resolution is to transfer from a vegetarian of 7 years to vegan, and spread the word about vegetarianism and veganism and their benefits to not only us as people, but how they will help reduce the number of animals killed each year and how they will help save our environment for us and our future generations!

Erin -December 23, 2013, 2:12PM

Resolution for 2014: pay off my credit card, and get my savings account back on track :) It’s time to save up to do the things your spirit yearns for!

My new years resolution is to find inner peace. I would love to start making every day the best day it can be. I want to have an at ease mind. I would love to make yoga a habit again for me. I also want to stop making impulsive purchases. I need less than I think I do. I want to be healthy outside and inside.

My daughter just turned 1 and I want to show her the beauty of the world and the gift of life. I also want to be the best wife I can be and really find my inner peace n control my emotions more and let love lead the way.

My resolution is always have a book to get a quick read in, create more, and put more effort into my daily look!

Sofia -December 23, 2013, 2:32PM

My new years resolution (I have two) is to let go. To let go of the friends who have not valued my friendship all in hopes of being able to become a stronger more focused individual. The second, to not stop traveling. I would loose a lot of who I am if I did not go someplace new every year.

Pixie -December 23, 2013, 2:38PM

My New Year’s resolution is to get gigs as a gogo dancer and LED/Fire Hooper!

Sarah -December 23, 2013, 2:52PM

My new years resolution is to live in the present and improve upon my yoga practice!

Cat -December 23, 2013, 2:52PM

To live in love and release any fear-like thoughts. As well as becoming respectful of my body by eating healtier and exersing more, so I am be a strong more radiant carrier of light and love!

Alice Wolf -December 23, 2013, 2:56PM

This year, I am going to go beyond what’s familiar and safe. I have been giving in to what’s comfortable, which has always limited my ability to be free and creative. I will make magic happen!

My new years resolution is to be more positive and work toward doing more to help others

Lydia -December 23, 2013, 3:15PM

My new years resolution is to be grateful for what I have. I’m the kind of person who always lives in the future- asking myself where I’m going next, how I can improve this or that, etc. A close friend was diagnosed with cancer recently (staying positive!!). This was a huge shock that made me realize how suddenly everything can change, and how important it is to stay in the moment. I don’t want to regret not forgiving someone or not spending enough time with someone I love. So! While I’m still working towards my goals and striving to grow, I’m also making sure to take time to appreciate the goodness I have in my life now.

Wendy -December 23, 2013, 3:18PM

To build a greenhouse in my backyard with all those old windows and things piling up in my garage…

montana -December 23, 2013, 4:21PM

To start appreciating the little things in my life that I take for granted every day.

Amanda -December 23, 2013, 4:30PM

To live in the present and to leave the future & the past out of sight.
FreePeople has been absolutely fundamental in shaping me to think this way. I’m so glad I’ve discovered this blog this year and I feel like a happier person because of it!

Hilary -December 23, 2013, 4:32PM

To carve out more time to be by myself during the day.

Olivia -December 23, 2013, 4:43PM

Courtney -December 23, 2013, 4:51PM

My New Year’s Resolution this year is to be the best “me” i can be. Every day is such a blessing, and I want to treat every day as a gift. I love random acts of kindness, and want to make as many people smile a day as I can. I want to radiate a positive attitude, and bring warmth and joy to the coldest hearts. I want to help bring the human race together as one unified people by spreading peace, art, music, compassion, and love.

Hayli -December 23, 2013, 5:03PM

My New Year’s Resolution is simply to love unconditionally. There is no sense in looking what others can give to you, but what you can give to others without expecting anything in return. I am also pursuing my passion of Holistic Healing/Medicine this year so I am very excited about that. I am also going to set my dreams of traveling to Bali to receive my yoga certification in motion this year, and applying for a FreePeople Internship that I have wanted to do for so long.

xo,
Hayli Smith

stephanie -December 23, 2013, 5:07PM

my new year’s resolution is to give people presents the whole year. i really want to donate more money and give people on the street a little money or a warm meal. usually if i meet a person like that i think about it to give her/him something but then i decide to go on. it’s a shame but most of the people are like this. in 2014 i will try to change myself – i think it will also be a present for me!

Judi D -December 23, 2013, 5:08PM

Giovanna Roselli -December 23, 2013, 5:12PM

My new year’s resolution is to sit back, and focus on what’s important. This year has thrown many curveballs in my direction regarding health, and family. In the new year, I plan to: live in the moment, not sweat the little things, and appreciate the sometimes overlooked things. Worrying about little things that aren’t important in the grand scheme of things isn’t worth it – I am going to apply these changes to my lifestyle, and become a stronger person in the long run.

Kalene -December 23, 2013, 5:12PM

Brittany -December 23, 2013, 5:25PM

New Years resolution: Take every chance I get to be with the ones I love. I realize that we are all getting older – my parents, my friends, and even myself. Things go by way too fast. Sometimes when I get too caught up with my own personal life or work, I forget to let my loved ones know that I care and love them so much!

Jaimie -December 23, 2013, 5:26PM

As a recent college grad, my new year’s goal is to get my career life moving! Whether that means relocating to Boston, NYC, Cali, Philly, or some place in between, I am determined. I want to focus on making my dreams come true, staying positive, and embodying that free spirited “it girl” persona that I strive towards every day! Too excited for 2014.

Heidi -December 23, 2013, 5:28PM

i believe my new year’s resolution would be: to learn to look towards the future,
to take care of myself and the people around me to the best of my abilities.
cut down on coffee.
try to hug someone everday.
talk to my family atleast once.
read as much as possible.
breathe, and try not to sweat the small things (which is usually my favorite thing to do.)
and wake up every morning to enjoy a walk and the gorgeous sunrise.

Carleen -December 23, 2013, 5:29PM

Suzy -December 23, 2013, 5:31PM

2014 is the year of the Horse, which is my Chinese zodiac! I read that 2014 will be perfect for travelling and making dreams come true; which is exactly what I’ll be doing. I bought a one way flight to Australia and I’m planning to go to Indonesia, New Zealand and any other beautiful destinations I’ve always wanted to see. I want to continue to be a positive person and surround myself with more like-minded people, ignite others with my mindset, do more volunteer work, learn to surf and hopefully make some sort of living out of my passion (painting)! xxx

niloo -December 23, 2013, 5:40PM

my new years resolution is to be a better person, in every sense of the word. i’ve spent so much of my life focusing on concrete, career driven goals, that have been selfish at times, and am now finally realizing, that before i can achieve anything great, i need to be a decent, happy human being. so i’m going to take this year and take care of myself, my body, my mind, my soul. i’m going to stop seeing only myself, and try to give something back to others, by being more attentive to the needs of my family and friends, and by helping those who need it through volunteer endeavours. i’ve already signed up with a volunteer organization and plan to spend my next year (once i finish school) traveling to and helping impoverished regions around the world. i’m really looking forward to the experiences the year can offer and am ready to become a better person.

Kirra -December 23, 2013, 5:40PM

Well I have a few New Years resolutions this year. For one I want to be happy. Just chose to be happy and positive. I have allowed myself to be stuck in the past and beat myself up for ridiculous things for so long I just want to let everything go. I also want to take better care of myself, and get in better health. And to appreciate all the little things and stuff that most people un-knowingly take for granted. I want to get a job and save up so I can go to cosmetology school. And maybe start a small etsy or something on the side and make beautiful things I love and put all of my heart and soul into them. And wake up smiling every morning, just happy to see another day. But most importantly I want to learn to love myself for every part of me, good or bad and finally be just be me. Happy Holidays. xx

Clemey -December 23, 2013, 6:01PM

As quoted by Mahatma Gandhi “Keep your thoughts positive as your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive as your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive as your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive as your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.”

My New Years resolution is to learn to slow down and enjoy each day. As an army wife, and a mother of two beautiful baby girls, it seems life is in a constant moving state and there’s never anytime to just stop and appreciate what I have. I’m so blessed! And I plan to take a few minutes of each day and just think of all the wonderful things and people in my life.

Sarah -December 23, 2013, 6:27PM

miss b -December 23, 2013, 6:27PM

My new years resolution is to take a moment every morning while drinking that first cup of tea, to sit in the sunlight and journal. No inhibitions, just writing whatever comes to mind…. feelings left over from dreams , or doodles, simple thoughts, or haikus. Over the year I want my unconscious mind to be revealed onto paper, so when I am not feeling myself~ or unsure of who I am , I can see all the little beautiful things that compose me!
Also to practice more random acts of kindness (spread the love) and do more yoga!<3 happy new years fp!

Bonnie -December 23, 2013, 6:36PM

My New Year’s resolution for 2014: At my old age ;-) I find resolutions harder to come by…yes I could say get more fit, however I trek across the New Mexico high desert, help with wood cutting, lots of just working out without “the video, or going to the gym”..solutions for me represent something that I plan on changing for a life-time, not a month, not until I get bored…or it really never fit “my lifestyle”. So, I think my New Year’s resolution is to live with less…and to be appreciative for what I have, not to get caught up in life’s material world.

sunshine -December 23, 2013, 6:37PM

To be happy and young forever! And record some new stuff and show it to everyone and play a lot of great gigs :)

My New Years resolution is to help others appreciate the beauty and simplicity in life. I just want everyone to be happy, especially my family. The most important thing I’ve learned during 2013 is to take 10 minutes of each day to be happy and do something that you love with people that matter.

Emily Huynh -December 23, 2013, 7:37PM

My New Years resolution is to do what i love, not what i think i am supposed to do.
As a student, it’s a constant battle trying to make life changing decisions on what you love vs. what [society says] is good for you. But in the end, a good paying job won’t satisfy. Money won’t satisfy. But doing what you love, changing the world, loving people, and being a free spirit will do more than satisfy.

Nicole F. -December 23, 2013, 7:38PM

I love New Year’s, it’s a chance for everyone everywhere to start over and have a clean slate. There’s no better thing on this planet than hope and a blank piece of paper. I try and make reasonable resolutions so I don’t disappoint myself so this year is to try and listen more. Really listen, not just sit and wait for my turn to talk, not just hear someone….but really talk less and listen more.

Katie -December 23, 2013, 7:42PM

My New Year’s Resolution(s) are to practice meditation/mindfulness at least once a day and to appreciate all of my many blessings every day.

Liz -December 23, 2013, 9:22PM

My New Years resolution is to get out more. As an artist it is too easy to get stuck in my studio and forget there is a world outside my window. I want to tackle my fear and meet people and mingle. Plus it gives me reasons to wear cute outfits :)

Maria -December 23, 2013, 9:25PM

My new years resolution is to go out of my comfort zone and be proud of my body and who I am by creating a real blog

Maria -December 23, 2013, 9:26PM

Oh and to create a new, positive bond with the one person I just can’t seem to get a long with

Alicia -December 23, 2013, 9:26PM

To go on as many adventures as I can.

Maria -December 23, 2013, 9:28PM

AH ANOTHER ONE HAHA to replace my morning bowl of cereal with a cup or two of tea. Both of those teas sound amazing!

Tami Gleason -December 23, 2013, 9:29PM

I will not feel sorry for myself. I found out this year that I have MS. And I’ve just had a major back surgery rebuilding the whole lower half of my back. I vow to look forward to each day and treasure all the things in life I’ve always loved. Now is time for a new and different life. New miracles. New memories. New friends. Happiness, and love.

Erica -December 23, 2013, 9:32PM

To do more with what I already have. To get back in to yoga, once baby arrives. I was due 2 days ago!

1. Workout regularly to stay fit and healthy.
2. Make others smile

Anna -December 23, 2013, 9:41PM

To be more grateful and give thanks more often.

Kayleigh -December 23, 2013, 9:43PM

My New Year’s resolution is to feel comfortable in my own skin. In the immortal words of Beyoncé, “Perfection is a disease of a nation, pretty hurts”. Striving to look or be perfect is impossible, you just end up hurting yourself in the process. Instead, I’m just going to work on feeling comfortable with myself, which will make me happier than anything else.

Ashley -December 23, 2013, 9:46PM

My New Years resolution is to be more positive and change my habits for the healthier!!

Cara -December 23, 2013, 9:52PM

to be genuinely happy. to lead a healthful life: physically, mentally and emotionally. to work hard, to become more self-sufficient and financially independent. to explore and adventure and meet new people all while working steadfastly to achieve my goals

linnea -December 23, 2013, 9:54PM

It’s cliché but I want to lose weight so I can try to get pregnant again!

Heather -December 23, 2013, 9:56PM

I am going to actively focus on my music next year

Crys -December 23, 2013, 9:59PM

To forgive.

Indi -December 23, 2013, 10:00PM

To free myself from the negativity, stress and low self esteem that comes with being 17, through meditation, art and positivity.

Jessiclaire -December 23, 2013, 10:02PM

To read more!

Whitney -December 23, 2013, 10:04PM

To turn my new sustainable pet boutique into a thriving business so I can make a living doing what I love and believe in (fashion, animals & sustainability), and run those large dishonest and unethical companies who only care about money out of business!

Alana Serfaty -December 23, 2013, 10:09PM

My resolution is to invite more peace and clarity into my life and live with more intention!

Jody -December 23, 2013, 10:12PM

Peace, love, hope!

For my New Year’s Resolution,
I am daring myself
to rise up every morning and be
more generous, more understanding,
more courageous and more adventurous
than the morning before.

My resolution is to eat gluten free.

Nicole -December 23, 2013, 10:17PM

My New Year’s Resolution is to read more with a good cup of tea!

Alissa -December 23, 2013, 10:18PM

I desire to spend my time differently – with purpose, even if that means to do nothing for the sake of relaxation. I want to build my relationship with God and focus on, perhaps even discover, my true reasoning of life – say it even merely be to brighten the day of people near me and broaden the giving of love. I want to give my time to others, I want to give them smiles and laughter. I hope to strengthen my health, both physically and mentally, and I hope to strengthen my creativity, through writing and the stroke of my hand. It’s quite a bit, yes, but I do have a whole wonderful year ahead of me, do I not?

Michelle C -December 23, 2013, 10:18PM

My new year’s resolution is to spread my new found health and fitness knowledge to help others find their own way!

Chloe -December 23, 2013, 10:19PM

My new years resolution is to start chasing every tiny dream! I’ve been dealing with depression, and I’m taking a break from school to get better. I can’t wait to see what wonderful things come from it :)

Vanessa -December 23, 2013, 10:19PM

To drink more tea ;)

priyanka -December 23, 2013, 10:20PM

my new year resolution is to have a whole new wardrobe of clothes consisting of chic and serene styles

Lauren -December 23, 2013, 10:24PM

To pray.
For me this manifests itself in poetry. I read a Hadot essay earlier in the fall semester that argued that the most effective spiritual exercises are those you lose yourself in. Eternally a non-traditionalist, it is only fitting that I am most at peace and separated from my ego when I am writing personal reflections. So it goes.

For the majority of my adolescence, I have struggled with my attempts to identify what exactly it was I was praying to (or rather, WASN’T praying to). Ever since I began university, I have found myself slowly coming back to a divine. I seek to know it. I seek to journey towards it. I am eager and hungry to be humbled by whatever path it leads me on.

Peka -December 23, 2013, 10:26PM

My resolution is to… Drink More Tea! :) I really need to get away from energy drinks and let my body reset… Plus a cup of chai is my happy place.

- -December 23, 2013, 10:27PM

Get through life without the small things bringing me down and re-connect with those who I may have neglected or pushed away in the past.

Tiffany -December 23, 2013, 10:30PM

My resolution is to do yoga more often!

Cassie -December 23, 2013, 10:36PM

Take photos every day and appreciate the little, important things in life.

Jasmine -December 23, 2013, 10:50PM

Be me. And sometimes, just get over myself. And wear more dresses :)

kelli -December 23, 2013, 10:50PM

i have a few of them:

pay off debt
grow spiritually
be a better mother and wife

spend less
be more patient

it’s a bit much but i think i can try to accomplish them.

Bretagne -December 23, 2013, 10:52PM

My New Years Resolution is to become more connected to my true self

kate -December 23, 2013, 10:54PM

In the new year, I strive to enjoy and strengthen my friendships, be thankful for everything around me, and continue my yoga practice!

Averry -December 23, 2013, 11:01PM

My New Year’s resolutions are, as written in my notebook…

Read the Bible (I’m not religious, but I would like to learn more about spirituality)
Go for a walk every day
Try yoga
Create a morning routine (inspired by Free People!)
Have a better relationship with my parents

elizabeth ashley -December 23, 2013, 11:02PM

cadi -December 23, 2013, 11:06PM

my new years resolution is to take a holistic approach to all things food related. let food by thy medicine :)

Erin Walkey -December 23, 2013, 11:08PM

My New Year’s resolution is to make art out of everything. Art doesn’t just have to be physically making things. It can be the way you look at things, too. I want my life to be as creative and inspiring as possible. Art can be the way I get ready in the morning, the way I communicate with others and even myself, the way I view things that happen to me. I am an artist and I want to bring the same feelings of harmony from when I am creating to every day aspects of my life.

sam -December 23, 2013, 11:12PM

to do: live in the moment. plan a zen getaway to costa rica. get outside more often. don’t sweat the small stuff. wake up earlier.

keep doing: seeing the best in everyone. developing my crafty side. standing up for what I believe in and loving myself, as I am.

My biggest New Years resolution for 2014 is to make it to two years without self injury. I made it to one year in October 21 of 2013! I just want to continue to grow and find myself and become the best I can be.

Jon -December 23, 2013, 11:29PM

My New Years Resolution is more of a promise to myself than anything, because it was something I was planning to do regardless the time of the year. It’s to live a more active and healthy lifestyle (yes, the usual :working out” Resolution). But this one I actually plan to stick to, unlike those who flood the gym’s for the first two weeks of January :D

Kathleen -December 23, 2013, 11:35PM

To be able to do a handstand and splits via yoga. Small but so much reward. Happy Holidays Free People!

Barbara -December 23, 2013, 11:40PM

Aruna -December 24, 2013, 12:10AM

My new year’s resolution is to stay healthy, spread love and have a positive outlook in life.

Claire -December 24, 2013, 12:15AM

In 2014 I want to grow as a person by overcoming past years hardships and realizing that every day is a chance to make a change for myself.

KC -December 24, 2013, 12:16AM

My resolution is to enjoy everyday to the fullest and document it in an art journal…I realize it is all to easy to get caught up in life and miss the little things or time you could have spent with others and you will never get that back. Time is a precious gift that we waste all too much and easily.

Chloe -December 24, 2013, 12:26AM

To not care what anyone else thinks and just do me!

Alex Deanne -December 24, 2013, 12:27AM

In 2014 I’d really like to return to my spiritual roots– I want to return to a healthier way, and more holistic way, of living. I’ve sort of grown out of my healthy routine, looking more for convenience in my very work-infused, busy days. I want to focus on the inner me and bring myself back to a mindful state of being.

Gracelyn -December 24, 2013, 12:30AM

To get a job. Anywhere in the US or in the world. Basically to go on an adventure better than my last. And to attain a social life again. Haha

Caitlyn -December 24, 2013, 12:44AM

Justina -December 24, 2013, 1:00AM

My New Years resolution is to balance my health and everyday life. With having a few significant health issues that affect me daily I’m determined to find a way to balance my body & mind to get me to a better place. With life, I plan to try to live everyday with meaning and a sense of adventure. To try and broaden my outlook on life & people.

Tatum Blinn -December 24, 2013, 1:03AM

My New Years resolution is to go to Africa and build wells for villages without water. In 2013 my sister and I began raising money to build the wells and we are so close to our goal. We plan on reaching that goal by March 2014 and going to Africa in September.

Tori -December 24, 2013, 1:07AM

This coming year my resolution is to live to make myself and others happy. I’ve decided to become more serious about pursuing yoga (for myself) and I will try to find the positives that affect me every day of my life. I want to become a more devoted girlfriend, daughter, hopeful college student, and human being.

Wen Yi -December 24, 2013, 1:27AM

this coming year i want to continue making the most of what i have, yet at the same time also make some time for coloring outside the lines, for having fun, for loving when there is love to be had… and to commit to regular exercise.

Brianna Pinzel -December 24, 2013, 1:31AM

My New Year’s resolutions are to get fit and save up a lot of money for college.

Claritsa Zambrano -December 24, 2013, 1:32AM

My New Years resolution is to let go of what I can’t control. To just live in the moment and not waste the good vibes you can be giving off to the world. I want to be surrounded with people that give out positivity even if the day is going crappy.

Elizabeth B -December 24, 2013, 1:46AM

My New Years Resolution is to feel more energized-physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. By the end of 2014, this new positive and active energy will push me towards applying for the Peacecorps after my college graduation!

Nadia Dervish -December 24, 2013, 1:54AM

My New Year’s Resolution is to give my best in all areas of my life. All or nothing.

Valerie -December 24, 2013, 2:06AM

I don’t usually make a New Year’s resolution.. ever. I am a routine goal setter and I’ve never truly embraced the freshness of the New Year as a holiday and time for change. Recently, however, I’ve been feeling that although my life is good and I’m loving who I’m becoming and I am proud of myself… I can be better. So I suppose that’s my New Year’s resolution– to become a better me. That may seem vague to you, strangers and blog readers and lovely free people.. but for me this includes several tangible, realistic, measurable things: Breaking my bad habit of biting my nails and no longer using profanity.
Drinking more water everyday and no longer drinking soda.
Doing yoga every morning for a minimum of fifteen minutes (focusing on my breaths this year!) and hulahooping to at least two songs each day.
Utilizing the free rock climbing facilities at my university’s gym at least twice a week.
Eating out only twice a month.
Discovering a form of meditation that speaks to me.

All of these things and a few more personal, attainable goals will help me accomplish my New Year’s resolution of becoming a better me! I am confident that I will.

All of my love and motivational energies to all of you!! May this coming year be one of beauty and self-discovery for all. MUAH

Michelle -December 24, 2013, 2:07AM

I aspire to become a stronger person. Instead of mulling over little trivial events that really only prevent me from seeing the bigger picture in life, I want to be able to perceive things with a positive manner and look for the good. I also want to gain self-confidence in myself and find a voice inside me that will speak up when I feel strongly about something and stop worrying about what others are thinking of me. Lastly, I want to better exert self-control and live life in a balanced equation, not over-indulging nor restricting myself. These are my New Year’s resolutions!

Kylie Rose -December 24, 2013, 2:07AM

My New Years resolution is to stay on this fabulous track that 2013 has put me on. I have learned so much and want to continue to learn and to also let loose all of the time, because although it truly is the longest thing you do, life is short and there’s plenty of room for more mistakes and greater knowledge. I’ve lost my job and started fresh somewhere else, I’ve moved again this year, and have found love. So yeah, 2014, I’m going to keep doing me. I can’t promise the petty things, like quitting smoking or exercising for once, but I can promise to stay true to me.

Kendall Reynolds -December 24, 2013, 2:07AM

My New Year’s Resolution is to begin working on myself and who I want to be, rather than what I need to be for other people

Kristina Mendez -December 24, 2013, 2:07AM

To revere the present as much as I dream of the future.

Samantha -December 24, 2013, 2:12AM

Pia -December 24, 2013, 2:19AM

To love more. Love my family more. Love my friends more. Love my work more. Love strangers more. Love myself more

Alex -December 24, 2013, 2:31AM

To live my life to the fullest. Also, to actually stick to my resolutions this year. Some more are to just be a healthy person: diet, and excerise should become habit, and to laugh more and not take life as seriously.

Alyssa -December 24, 2013, 2:40AM

my new year’s resolution is to focus on my happiness and health! i’m hoping to keep with my goal of practicing yoga at least once a day, cherish the time spent with friends, and make sure i give my all in everything i do. i will also be studying abroad in Germany for 3 weeks this summer, so I hope to live everyday abroad to its full potential. no stone will be left unturned!!!

Elise -December 24, 2013, 2:41AM

My New Year’s Resolution is to be more healthy and productive. I plan on writing more, working harder, eating better and exercising more often. I also feel like being more healthy isn’t just about being physically healthy, but mentally healthy, so I plan on spending more time with people that make me happy and less time with people that make me unhappy. The new year calls for change. :)

Maddy -December 24, 2013, 2:47AM

My resolution not only begins with actually sticking to it, but it includes my hopes for recreating my lifestyle to one I truly enjoy, free of bad energy and toxic things, whatever those may be. I hope to spread my happiness and smile onto others, and really enjoy living in the moment rather than thinking about what I have to do next. My resolution also includes my hopes of successful and safe travel, work, and helping others in my life and community. I do not necessarily want to change myself much as a person, but rather improve on things I can while adopting the new habits I have been wanting to implement into my daily life.

Casey -December 24, 2013, 2:48AM

My New Years resolution will be to go outside as much as possible— there are few things in life better than fresh air!!!~

Ellen -December 24, 2013, 3:02AM

To become a vegetation!
I’ve wanted to commit for a while and now I feel I can finally do it with the motivation to eat more consciously and save more animal’s lives! All animals deserve the right to live in their natural habitat and not in some cage.

Happy Holidays ❅

Jillian -December 24, 2013, 3:06AM

My news year resolution is to pay it back, It’s been a ruff year and I want to give it back to the people that were there for me an pass it on to people I don’t know. So my goal is each month to pay it back to someone and ask them to do the same. People have become so angry and we need to stick together and be kind to eachother. I want to do what I can to be a part of that movement.

Jessica -December 24, 2013, 5:05AM

My New Years resolution is to do more things in a day. Be adventurous and try new things instead of sticking to my routines! Thanks for the giveaway!

Erin -December 24, 2013, 5:29AM

My New Year’s resolution is to live more freely. To embrace my creativity: paint more, write more songs & poetry. I want to do thoughtful things for others just because and not worry about the time it may take from some of my responsibilities. I want to travel at a whim, have new adventures. I want to explore new music and burn a soundtrack cd that reminds me of the year I finally just “let go” & lived my life for the moment. (I’ve always lived a very structured life and tended to carry the weight of the world on my shoulders. I’ve worked two jobs since I was 13, always feeling the need to be responsible and prepared. I like that it enabled me to take care of people I love but somewhere along the way, around 23, I forgot the things that made me, “me”. I stopped breaking into song and dance in the middle of public for no reason other than I felt the need to. I didn’t draw or paint very often. I stopped taking random voyages to see friends who lived far away when I had time off. I started worrying too much about home repairs, keeping up with this or that, saving every penny, taking on way too much responsibility at once. I stopped allowing myself to have much fun at all really. 4 years of that and I felt nothing more accomplished, I felt exhausted. I lost my job this past summer and broke into my savings so that my husband and I could go to Montana for his brother’s wedding. Something in me snapped while we were there…but in a very good way. I simply allowed myself to give in to the moment, to simply not care. It’s the first I’ve felt a true fresh breath of air in years! We went to a music festival, made pottery at an artisan booth, I painted pictures of the sun setting over the mountains, and got WAY TOO CLOSE to a buffalo. It made me feel so alive…so in touch with my inner child and yet somehow as though I was rediscovering myself, finding who I was meant to truly be. It also helped rekindle something between my husband and I. We’d been engaged for years and always postponed our wedding for finances, others’ needs, life in general, whatever. We accidentally let trivial things get in the way. When we got back from Montana, we made our own invitations & threw a wedding together in just over a month, with as little stress and planning as possible. We vowed to just let things happen how they were meant to. I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding! I don’t know that it could have happened if I hadn’t embraced the whole new attitude of just living for the moment.) I can’t wait to keep taking steps upon the path of finding joy in the small things and letting things happen as they may! It’s so exciting and so unimaginatively liberating! This will be the first year in a long time I’m looking forward to the coming year with no stress, no expectations, no planning…just looking forward to embracing life!

Bee -December 24, 2013, 5:34AM

To be truly happy, to let go of everything that happened this year and stop caring about what other people think. This year I want to be free, happy and live life.

Victoria -December 24, 2013, 6:50AM

My New Year’s resolutions have a lot to do with my conversion to Buddhism over this year. I want to get more serious about meditation, yoga, incorporating zen rituals into my life, and learning more about the history, sects, and cultural Buddhist practices. I also want to figure out a way to balance my love for clothing, jewelry, and other material possessions with the aceticism that is central to all Buddhist doctrine.

I’d also like to sew more projects and down more DIY crafts!

Carin -December 24, 2013, 6:57AM

Drink more tea! ;)

My new years resolution is to continue working hard to my goals and don’t give up even when times aren’t great.

Ruthie -December 24, 2013, 8:52AM

Wow! it’s so great to read so many responses and resolutions!!
In 2014 I’m looking forward to becoming a certified Bikram yoga teacher and inspire others as much as I’ve been inspired in the past in my yoga practice and my daily life.
Wishing everyone a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Yessica -December 24, 2013, 9:41AM

My resolution for New Year is live each day like it would be the last. Enjoy little things, moments that make me happy. Learn more and more …read more…do more natural crafts…sew more. I want to to have a store and sell my chothing, accesories, journals, natural crafts, and also that the place have an area to play live music..seating area to share, art gallery nights…DIY projects, meetings to converse about books or social issues and serving natural homemade goodies and tea, join people to plan and do things to help environment and help people in need…etc etc.. It is a dream that I have but this new year I will work hard to achieve it! Also, I want to love more, and meet new people, new places… And the more important to continue doing the best for my daugther, my little princess! She is a special little girl and I will continue to search the more help possible about her health and enjoy quality time with her to see always her beautiful smile! : ) Happy holidays to everyone!!!

Amy -December 24, 2013, 9:46AM

To love others more, do more to let friends and family know they are appreciated — simple notes, cards, a thank you, and more phone calls. Be more creative, work harder and extend my yoga practice. Be thankful for everyday — the good and bad.

Claire -December 24, 2013, 10:02AM

My New Year’s resolution is to eat a really healthy diet because there are so many benefits to make you look and feel better. I also want to try a ton of different things and finally get my look together. I wanna be seen a little bit differently by everyone.

kayleigh -December 24, 2013, 10:27AM

my main new year’s resolution is to eat well, exercise, and take care of my mind. this past year, though it wasn’t bad, has left my mind absolutely fried. i am going into christmas with much less peace of mind and irritation that won’t go away. i haven’t been doing yoga, my eating habits have become pretty bad, and the only exercise i’m getting is walking to where i need to go. i just haven’t been able to stop and smell the roses and realize how great life is. in 2014, i’d love to go to more yoga and gym classes, try to cut out eggs and dairy (i already don’t eat meat except fish), and meditate.

Tiffany -December 24, 2013, 10:37AM

My resolution is to focus myself on the things that I find most important. I am in college studying dance and I find myself worrying about little things that frankly, do not matter. I want to refocus on dance, it’s the one thing that has always been consistent in my life, and I want really hone in and find myself once again lost in the movement.

Mariana -December 24, 2013, 10:44AM

My resolution is to start my own business! :D

Cheyenne -December 24, 2013, 12:42PM

I have always loved New Year’s Eve whether I’m at home alone by the fire watching the ball drop on tele or out with my friends drinking and being merry while waiting for your guy to give you a kiss at the stroke of midnight, when everyone is still in the holiday fever it ends the holiday break with a bang and a laugh. but my favorite part would be the feeling of renewal and freshness when you wake up the next morning, you can be whoever you want and do whatever you choose! it’s a fresh start at life, you just have to say yes.

Amy -December 24, 2013, 12:54PM

My New Years resolution is to be more confident in myself and those who are close to me.

hannah -December 24, 2013, 1:01PM

My ‘New Years Resolution’, as always, is to be the best possible me I can be in the new year. Each year I get closer and closer to living out this resolution and this year will hopefully be no different. The sub categories of being the best possible me include patience, humbleness and contributing more to the family. I hope everyone at free people have a wonderful holiday season!

Clémentine -December 24, 2013, 1:25PM

My New Year resolution is to be happy for one year again!

Emily -December 24, 2013, 1:33PM

Chrissy -December 24, 2013, 4:34PM

I resolve to make big and necessary changes- and to first figure out what they might be. I resolve to finish one more semester and give it all I’ve got. I resolve to be ok with the fact that school might not be for me, and if I find this to be true, I resolve to travel and bring real meaning to my life through hands on experiential living. I resolve to pay more attention to the changes of the seasons and to flow with them.

My New Years resolution is to continue to grow stronger each day: mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually, religiously etc. And to continue to do yoga before I go to bed each night. I would also like to make more time for my family and the ones I love, including me. ( It seems like I’m running in endless circles trying to balancing school and hunderds of other things, I am constantly stressed and have no time for anything I enjoy. -I want to change that.) And I also want to draw more.

Thanks for the giveaway,

Tara -December 24, 2013, 6:48PM

Zenaida -December 24, 2013, 7:07PM

Rebecca Benitez -December 24, 2013, 7:36PM

My resolution is to be in the moment this year. Stop worrying about the future and stop regreting the past. Simply enjoy this as they happen.

Peace and Love to All!!

Monica -December 24, 2013, 7:49PM

Anita -December 24, 2013, 9:54PM

My new year resolution is to stop being afraid of saying no, and to start realizing that I matter. That I am a human who has limits and that it’s okay if I can’t please everyone. Also, I need to start being ruthless at achieving my dreams. I need to be able to confront the things blocking me.

Arielle -December 24, 2013, 10:15PM

My new year’s resolution is to decide what I want to do with my life and find the strenght to do it, and also accept myself for who I really am. Much love to you all and good luck with your resolutions n_n xoxox

kaylyn -December 24, 2013, 10:31PM

Mine would be that to become more in tune with nature, to let my materialistic tendencies fall away, and figure out who I really am. *Love and light*

Erika -December 24, 2013, 10:46PM

This year my goal is to accumulate as little trash as possible. I’ve started early by making a compost in the yard and am going to shop carefully for groceries, buying items that have little/no packaging. I can’t wait to see how little garbage I can collect! =)

Lynne -December 24, 2013, 11:37PM

Amantha Dikin -December 25, 2013, 1:32AM

My resolution would have to be to embody what it meant to be a free people girl more. I already consider myself to be adventurous and laid back, but sometimes I brush these things off to succeed on the immediate goals (such as school work), but I need to calm down and love my life. By keeping my new year’s resolution, I’ll be able to love myself and the others around me, and focus all my energy on being the best person I can be.
happy holidays, fp!

Sarah -December 25, 2013, 12:02PM

My new years resolution is empathy. I don’t like to pick one thing I’ll do for a whole year instead I like to choose a theme for the year. Something that can be worked towards in all different ways as I see fit through out the seasons. Next year I plan to focus on connectedness not only with other people but with myself. I plan to be more empathetic (not sympathetic). And focus on building stronger relationships with new and old friends and with myself.

Julia -December 25, 2013, 12:18PM

My new years resolution is health of the mind and body. The body is a sacred temple that is often overlooked, and the mind is the source of all good thinking, loving, and being. Clarity is key, and I plan on working on achieving just that!

Sophia Lau-Shum -December 25, 2013, 2:08PM

<3

mekenna -December 25, 2013, 4:34PM

My new year’s resolution is to find the beautiful moments in even the most monotonous days. To pay attention to the sensations of my five senses and actually listen, smell, see, hear, and touch. The “10 Sweet Little Moments in…” series by Kristen Hedges on your blog inspired me so much, and as I’ve practiced the meditations she suggested, my every day routines have become more interesting and inspiring. I hope to remember these meditations every day this upcoming year, relish in every moment and make it count!

Katie -December 25, 2013, 4:44PM

Erika Noel -December 25, 2013, 6:29PM

2014 is going to be a landmark year for me. I’ll be spending my last semester of college studying fine arts in Valencia, Spain (and I’m a Nutritional Sciences major! =O) and then I have no clue where I’ll be! With seemingly endless choices ahead of me, I resolve to go into 2014 with my eyes, heart and mind open. Open to new people, experiences outside of my comfort zone and a future I may not have dreamed of yet.

Sydney Garland -December 25, 2013, 7:52PM

To be happy

Taylor -December 25, 2013, 8:07PM

Ariel -December 25, 2013, 9:55PM

This past year has really been rough for me. I’ve been going through a lot of changes and it has really been depressing. At times, I just feel like I have no one. For my new years resolution, I want to find the best in every situation I am put through. Instead of letting it bring me down, I will try and grow from it. I just want to remain optimistic and although I may be going through hard times, I want to always treat people with the kindess they deserve.

Brenda -December 25, 2013, 10:01PM

My year resolution is to be a better person overall and to focus on the positive things in life.

novaclark -December 25, 2013, 10:02PM

My New Years resolution is to finally be good at something and find a way to express myself through my art. I need to have more passion and ambition. I don’t want this whole new year to be a different me, just a twist of one. A kaleidoscope that showing off all of my colors.

asha -December 25, 2013, 11:05PM

To find time to completely stop. in complete silence. underneath the stars. finding peace and clarity.

Hannah -December 25, 2013, 11:27PM

This year I really want to take some time from my busy busy life and spend more time being creative and exploring the world around me. I hope to make time for music, writing and art and learning about different places and the people all around me.

Anna -December 25, 2013, 11:28PM

I will bring more adventure into my life, even if I have to go looking for it

Julier Escobar -December 25, 2013, 11:39PM

Surround myself with people who love me, encourage me to be myself and be successful but happy at the same time. Avoid negative vibes from people who put me down and lessen me and my goals. Help others because I’ve always needed help and although I don’t have much to give I believe even just my time is enough.

Overall:

BE POSITIVE, HELP OTHERS, ACHIEVE MY GOALS, TAKE RISKS, TAKE RISKS, LOVE, AND BE HAPPY!!

Calli -December 26, 2013, 12:12AM

Tash Davy -December 26, 2013, 4:45AM

My new years resolution is to smile all the time and see the good in people more often. I am a smiley person, but I want to do it more! Not only does it make others feel welcome, but actually releases endorphins in the brain! Negativity is a backward step and I want to grow as a person by making a conscious effort to spread the love! Happy new year free people! ☼

Jessica Smith -December 26, 2013, 10:47AM

My new years resolution is to guard my tongue.
Our mouths hold so much power. The ability to encourage someone and the power to tear someone down. I want to be a woman of positive voice. Not a woman who manipulates others to get what she wants. I want to make sure what I say about someone only builds them up in confidence and self esteem. I do not want to take the power of my tongue and ruin someone’s self image or talk bad about them. It will be difficult to change at first. But I think it is going to change my reputation for generations if I work hard at committing to it

Meghan reno -December 26, 2013, 11:14AM

My yoga teacher always tell me to take my yoga practice with me where ever i go. In the new year & beyond I thrive to be the person i am on my mat and in my hoop EVERYWHERE i go .

Abigail -December 26, 2013, 12:57PM

Amy -December 26, 2013, 5:48PM

I always use the fresh start of a new year to challenge myself to either chase a dream or dare myself to face a fear, so this year I am going to try out for Shakespeare in the Park and open mic night. Wish me luck.

Jess -December 26, 2013, 6:00PM

My new years resolution is to want less and love more… to unabashedly offer my heart to others without expectation of what I’ll “get back”

Celia -December 26, 2013, 6:08PM

My resolution is to be bold this year- try new and different things everyday. So then I can look back on 2014 and embrace all the crazy things I have done.

courtney -December 27, 2013, 12:04AM

My new years resolution is to make everything in my life a little better: my days a little more positive, my friendships stronger, my life happier, and my body to be more fit. That’s how it should be year round but a New Year gives us a refresher to pick the pace back up to speed.

Valeria -December 27, 2013, 1:38AM

Do more, think less.0

abbra -December 27, 2013, 3:09AM

My New Year’s resolution is always just to try and be as happy as I can. This year i’m adding:
-Go on another trip to Europe with my family (we spent a month in the Ireland and the U.K. and it was magical).
-Be a more conscientious buyer…i’m finally getting serious about cutting out things made in sweatshops.
-Eat more whole foods.

Allison -December 27, 2013, 10:09AM

I’m content with where things are right now. In the new year, I’ll look to improve little areas of my life and remain patient, fine, balanced, and kind.

Cat -December 27, 2013, 3:24PM

My New Year’s resolution? To have a wardrobe composed entirely of dresses from Free People – they are beautiful, comfortable, go well with my accessories from around the world and I feel truly like myself wearing them. They’re dresses made to fit my personality, and as a young bohemian artist I need clothing that fits me inside and out.

youna -December 27, 2013, 3:58PM

This year I want to be more PATIENT. That’s a huge job, so it might be the only one. That and getting my ass off the sofa and go to the gym :)

Grey -December 27, 2013, 5:02PM

One of my goals is to focus on the journey of simplifying my life. I certainly would like to reduce both physical and mental clutter!

Alexandra Jane -December 27, 2013, 5:06PM

I have been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. It is hell to live with. My goal for the upcoming year is to learn to manage my BPD and become a stronger person.

Alexandra -December 27, 2013, 6:00PM

My resolution is to silence my anxieties and enjoy what I have while I still have it.

Jane -December 27, 2013, 6:18PM

My New Years Resolution is to lead a more natural and healthier lifestyle. I’d like to continue to learn about DIY natural products and implement them into my life. I’d like to start working out more (planning to keep up with the Tone It Up Love Your Body series starting on the 1st) and take better care of my body. I would also like to explore new business adventures. I think 2014 will be an exciting year for me!

Olivia Crooker -December 27, 2013, 7:58PM

My New Years Resolution is to become the best person i can be. To truly forgive and forget, to love and to be centre. This past year of 2013 was full of craziness and I need to become more bounded and whole. to start thinking of other more than myself, and to recognize a need from a necessity. I need to be able to give quicker than receiving and to appreciate those little moments. I get so rapped up in technology that I forget what’s actually important. To become a more whole person I feel that I need to start meditating daily and making sure that i get to yoga everyday. those two aspects have helped me some, and with a more regular practice I believe that it could truly make all the crazy aspects of my life more complete and grounded. xx I can’t wait for 2014!

My New Years Resolution is to actively practice and understand that I must first take care of myself in order to successfully care for others. I plan to eat better, be active, craft more and learn to love myself. After a really difficult 2013, I hope that I have learned from my trials and will work toward a happy and healthy 2014.

My New Years resolution is write down one thing a day that brought a smile to my face. I want to bring more awareness to the good all around me and focus on the positive light shining my way!

I’m a junior in HS and i’m new this year at my current school ! This is my 10th school (total) and my 3rd highschool. Moving so much has given me a lot of anxiety and it makes me feel really apprehensive to meet new people. So far, this year has NOT be swell. But my New Year’s Resolution is to stop moping (mopping?) and to just meet new people and to just live ! 2013 was pretty rough, i started a new (other) school my sophomore year and it was way different from my 2012 year. But i overcame a lot of things and learned a lot that year ! I hope to accomplish big things this year too !

My boyfriend and I just moved into a small fixer-upper. My New Year’s resolution is to clean out the back yard and plant a vegetable and herb garden for the Spring. Maintenance on the garden will be challenging, but well worth the reward!

Kelsey Jonas -December 27, 2013, 10:24PM

Yay for San Diego businesses! My New Years resolution is to make the most of this year & to drink more tea! It’s a big year for me seeing as I will be starting college in the fall & I’m going to need lots of tea to keep me calm

My New Year’s resolution is to care less about what the world tells me to do and focus more on what matters in my life. I also hope to have more adventures, be more spontaneous and go outside of my comfort zone!

Mehreen Mir -December 28, 2013, 2:14AM

My New Years resolution is to be more active and eat healthy!

erica -December 28, 2013, 6:54AM

my new years resolution is to be healthy and happy — to embrace life’s uncertainties and surprises as they come

mia -December 28, 2013, 8:25AM

my new year’s resolution is to transform my patterns of fear into courageous opportunities for love. to meditate more so that i don’t become wrapped up in every little detail, but rather embrace the fluctuations of being human. these things will make more space for light – within me, and thus, for every person that i interact with.

L -December 28, 2013, 10:41AM

i have been enjoying Danielle LaPorte’s “The Desire Map”. I mapped my core desired feelings last year and did it again this year. My core desired feelings for 2014 – to be: At Ease, Open, Light and Balanced. Tea is just one of the many things that I enjoy that helps me focus on just being and this package is really awesome.

Lauren -December 28, 2013, 1:56PM

My resolution is to start little, but to make small changes to get the life I’m happy with. From being more grateful, ridding my life of people who don’t add to it, and doing the things I have always wanted to do.

Alina -December 28, 2013, 3:33PM

My resolution for 2014 is to spend more time feeling and less time thinking. I want to work on keeping the past in the past and the future in the future and simply enjoying the simplest of moments in the present. One of my meditation rituals involves sitting in front of my window, clearing my mind and drinking tea without distractions so I obviously went slightly berserk when I noticed your giveaway!

Anne Ant -December 28, 2013, 5:13PM

My new New Year’s resolution is to discover the true essence of pure air that surrounds our lives and begin to enjoy it ~

Ashlie -December 28, 2013, 6:13PM

My New Year’s Resolution is to spend more time in deep thought about the world and people I’m surrounded by and keep these thoughts in a journal with photographs and found things.

Fern -December 28, 2013, 7:40PM

My New Year’s Resolution is to be healthier. I know this is a bit cliche. But, I feel like this year could be the year for me to get in shape!

Ashley -December 28, 2013, 11:40PM

My New Years resolution is to be a better listener & to think before I speak

Britt -December 28, 2013, 11:49PM

My New Year’s Resolution (which should probably be eat healthier and exercise more) is travel. Travel often, travel long, travel far. And write all about it and take a million photographs and dig up more inspiration for my books. :)

(also, my NYR would include finishing up my latest series, journaling more, reading more, promoting my books more, more more more… I can’t have just one resolution, right?) :)

Sarah R -December 29, 2013, 12:19AM

My resolutions are to be kinder to my body (feed it better, exercise it) and to be more peaceful, practicing anti-stress techniques like meditation, burning incense, etc.

Kaliane -December 29, 2013, 12:29AM

Catchthevibes -December 29, 2013, 2:42PM

2014 will be a lovely year, no doubt.
I plan to continue eating simple & with intention.
I’m also learning to stop worrying over what I can’t control- I’ll carry this mantra into 2014.

Ana -December 29, 2013, 5:49PM

My only new year’s resolution is to write something every day. I want to work on my writing skills.

Krystle -December 29, 2013, 6:05PM

I would like to heal the people around me – make them whole. Maybe travel to new places to heal broken people. To me, helping others from depression or illness is the path to fulfillment. These interactions are the ways to shaping the world and showing society that we are not lost or selfish. I will also, of course, prioritize my well-being. Sleepless nights no more!
Thank you for your consideration!

Britt @ One&20 -December 29, 2013, 6:48PM

My resolution is to put out into the world what I want to receive: faith, positivity, and love.

Mary Ann -December 29, 2013, 11:17PM

To go vegan. I love animals way too much to consume anything that could have harmed them in any way, anymore. It’s healthier, better for the environment, and doesn’t harm any animals, so why not :)
