“To see my name in print.” And More Six-Word Resolutions for 2012

Saturday, December 31st, 2011

By Liz Crowder

2011 is to 2012 what a ratty old coat is to a brightly colored, new one.

New Year festivities celebrate getting rid of the layer of excess, bad habits and questionable decisions that build up over the course of a year. Love them, hate them, make them or break them, that’s what New Year’s resolutions are all about. Resolutions are good-spirited, harmless, well-intentioned fun whether we devote ourselves to them, start strong with enthusiasm that fizzles out on Jan. 2, make them in jest or not at all.

So here’s a toast to 2012, fresh starts, new beginnings, and that irresistible draw to ring in the New Year with a resolution or two. Whether you’ve raised your champagne glass with friends at a confetti covered club, a family party or sitting comfortably on your couch, be sure to check out the Six-Word resolutions below.
