In 2013, I hope to learn more about the yoga practices I have recently begun. In 2013, I hope someone finally invents a peanut butter that actually helps you lose weight!
LISA GACHE: In 2013, on a personal note, I wish for continued good health for my family and our loved ones; and for happiness, contentment and the ability to slow down and appreciate being in the present moment. On a more grand scale, I hope for a peaceful year with less violence and catastrophic events, a growing economy and a more positive outlook for the future.
MICHELLE GOLLAND: In 2013 I hope for common sense gun control.
DR. ART GRAY: In 2013 I am hopeful for health and happiness for family and friends. I am hopeful that our world we be better. Better in how we treat each other and better in how we take care of our planet. I am hopeful to be a person that makes a positive difference in the life of others to help them be helpful towards others as well. I am hopeful for my kids to be the best they can be even if it's not what I want them to be. I also want to hear the news of a grand baby and not just a grand puppy!!
I am hopeful to learn from the mistakes of the past year so I don't make them again. I am hopeful that I can learn from good things so I can repeat them.
Mostly, I am hopeful for the things of peace and love that seem so unattainable in the realities of life to BE the realities of life through the miracles of God.
DR. ESTIE HESS: In 2013, I hope for the ability to take care of myself so that I continue to have the strength and clarity of mind to support children and their families with need. Wishing all my readers a healthy and happy New Year.

JODI WING: After so many perspective-changing events-- especially in Newtown, I hope that in 2013 we can reset our expectations of others as well as ourselves, and focus more on our interconnection, on our social responsibility. We need to practice communicating more effectively, to use our words patiently and wisely, and to lead with passion, with what gives us joy and inner peace. This is my resolution.
