The New Year is almost here and for many people its a time to refresh and make some changes. Most of us have some sort of New Year's Resolution that we PLAN on keeping to try to make our lives just a little bit better. My Resolution for the New Year is to be nicer to myself.

I have a bad habit of not saving enough money in order to do nicer things for myself instead of always going overboard on others. What can I say, I like to make people smile. But a lot of times it leaves me with little time or money to do anything nice for myself, which is one of the things I'm always telling OTHER people to do...go figure.

Here is a list of the top resolutions for 2012 according to a survey from of the top 100 New Year's Resolutions of 2012. See if any of YOURS are listed, and if not, add them in the comment box! HAPPY NEW YEAR!
