Another year in the books... and a new one just getting started. We all probably have hopes and dreams for the new year (no more formula or kids’ medicine shortages? a girl can dream!) — but some of us have made specific goals, too. Here are 16 that readers shared with the Scary Mommy Confessional.

I make goals, no resolutions. Usually how many books I want to read!
Reestablish boundaries: my sister and co can f*ck off
It will NOT be anything to do with diet culture, that’s for sure!!
I hate resolutions. I never make them. I try to just be the best person I can be every year.
I’m getting my boobs lifted in January. I resolve to flaunt it!!
I’m resolving to be less judgy of others and try to stop comparing myself so much
Start sticking up for myself more especially to my MIL and not wait for my husband to do it
I want to be more present
One day a month for me! - massage, nails, girls day, etc
No resolutions! I don’t make them. If you want to change your life do it NOW, not on 1/1.
I wish I could make resolutions for everyone else that they had to follow!
To spend less time volunteering so I can have more quality time with my kids!
To leave my husband
F*ck it. If I was gonna be better, I would have done it by now.
To forgive myself more. To realize that I’m doing the best I can.
I have the same one every year since kids - survive. That’s it.
