Meridian, Miss. New Year's Day shoppers couldn't wait to share their New Year's resolutions with Newscenter 11.
"To spend more time with family," Michelle White said.
"Just have fun and enjoy life when you're retired," Rennette Arnold said.
"Mine is to help more homeless people," Lavonna Beam said.
"Get my dream truck," Jed Dubry said.
"Quit smoking, lose weight," Katie Small said.
Though there are a variety of goals for 2014, most people seem to have at least one. Now that those resolutions have been set, then comes the task of actually making them happen. Those we spoke to told us they expect to make those dreams become a reality.
"Sure, why not!" Arnold added.
"Family's just always been really important to me," White explains. "And everybody just gets so busy with everything that they don't really take the time out to spend with family that they need to. So, I think we should just all treasure that more."
As we all begin to think about taking down our Christmas trees and beginning a new year, a new poll from the Associated Press says that most Americans think 2014 will be a better year than 2013.
