For some, New Year's resolutions are about living a healthier lifestyle.

I love resolutions! They allow us the chance to take stock of where we've come and look at where we're headed. It's important to pause now and then to reflect on our own development and progress, otherwise it can all go by in a blur. So for 2014, I resolve not to be afraid. I am going to be brave and embrace change; I will say yes to new experiences, and take advantage of opportunities entering my life that are different than usual. I want to eat at new restaurants, travel to unusual places and above all, be open to things that make me uncomfortable.
