Resolutions are a traditional part of each new year but they also reflect an insightful moment of pause between one period of time and the next, the space in which we consider what we want for our lives over the next 365 days. 

What is important to us, who we want to spend time with, and how we want to go forward from the point where we find ourselves happens somehow as we change over from one calendar page to another, with a sense of renewal that follows a season focused on comfort and joy. December’s transition to January brings out a unique sense of hope.

We asked readers like you to tell us about what they are hoping for in 2020. Our survey received more than 120 responses in less than 24 hours, including these 20 standout responses:
