Readers from Brazil, Canada, China, Italy, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, Puerto Rico, the United States, and Venezuela share their resolutions.
One of my resolutions for next year will be to save enough money for my son’s education. I’d like to have less stress in my life and dedicate more time to my family. To show my love more to the people that I live with and that I meet along the way.
Mayra Ivette from Puerto Rico
Next year, I’ll try to be more punctual. I’m also planning to do my best as I’m going to enter the university. Well actually I don’t know why I’m doing this because every year I make some resolutions for the next year that I barely realize. Anyway, it’s kind of funny to find out at the end of the year that you didn’t stop smoking, or that you just went to work out once a month instead of three times a week, or that you are still as impunctual as you were.
Paola Montsalve from Mexico
Trying to make a better world is a task that all of us should do. I will try to make my world better by doing good actions and helping needy people. The new year is going to be a productive year for me. I will try to work out very often in order to get in better physical condition. I will also study very hard to pursue a degree in engineering. I will keep myself away from bad habits such as smoking and drinking because they affect our health. With these changes maybe I can help make a better world!
Luis Schiavo from Venezuela
I hope I’ll be more patient next year. I’m already learning to be more patient this this year by working. I’m working in a very nice French cafe. Next year I plan to study hard. I want to study economics. I want to do this so that I can get a job in something that deals with economics.

My New Year’s resolution is to become one with God first. I then would like to finally put my body in working gear; I tend to be lazy when it comes to exercising.
I would also like to meet that special someone, who will fill my life with happiness and kids. I think my main course will probably be to find and love myself more than anything.

My New Year’s Resolution is to be a better person to all people that I meet. I also hope to study more consecutively and be a more diligent student in hopes of surpassing my current standards. A plethora of opportunities awaits all who would strive for them, which is what resolutions are about. My good wishes to all of you who would not wither away but thrive in intellect and in spirit, in the USA, or wherever you life or spirit and dreams take you.
