GA Voice - - New Year's Resolutions -

My New Year’s res­o­lu­tion is to be more spir­i­tu­ally and phys­i­cally keen, thus ev­ery year I en­gage in a cleans­ing fast that con­sists of ab­stain­ing from meats/flesh as well as only or­ganic fruits, veg­eta­bles, grains and herbs. I be­lieve we should all strive to live our best life the full year!

My res­o­lu­tion is to track devel­op­ments in the lat­est push to pass an al­leged re­li­gious free­dom bill in Ge­or­gia with­out anti-dis­crim­i­na­tion pro­tec­tions. I’ll be shar­ing Ge­or­gia Voice’s news up­dates and us­ing my so­cial me­dia ac­counts to spot­light the law­mak­ers and busi­nesses in Ge­or­gia too dense to heed the 2015 eco­nomic lessons of In­di­ana. If you choose to sup­port dis­crim­i­na­tion

My New Year’s res­o­lu­tion is to share more about my back­ground as a gay Latino liv­ing with HIV; it is not as chal­leng­ing as it may seem and I’d like to share my tes­ti­mony. In 2016, I will work to bridge the gap be­tween the main­stream LGBT com­mu­nity and the Latino LGBT com­mu­ni­ties. We can ac­com­plish so much more united. My fa­vorite quote: “Best Way To Pre­dict The Fu­ture Is To Cre­ate It.”

My New Year’s res­o­lu­tions in­clude: do­ing more car­dio and di­ver­si­fy­ing my work­outs, eat­ing less pizza and work­ing on my road rage!

Sil­ver­line Oko­roh

In the year 2016, I plan to con­tinue to ed­u­cate black women on hair care and beauty through my YouTube chan­nel, “Sil­ver­line’s Beauty Play­book” as well as learn a new lan­guage with the help of Rosetta Stone. Also, get­ting my body in the best pos­si­ble shape is also on my to-do-list.

Randi Ash­ley Jackson

This year I will take the plunge and fi­nal- ly get my own busi­ness off the ground. I’ve worked so hard try­ing to achieve suc­cess as oth­ers see it. This year I will work to­wards my own dreams. Life is too short to not ex­per­i­ment. I will not fear the opin­ions of oth­ers. I will not con­form to what’s ex­pected of me. In­stead, I will do what makes my heart sing. My mantra for 2016 is “Be Brave!”

Philip Raf­shoon

I re­cently tripped and dis­lo­cated my shoul­der while on a run. I’m re­cov­er­ing quickly but it cramped my style for a bit. So my res­o­lu­tion is to do ev­ery­thing I can to end up stronger than be­fore. And as I get there, I plan to spend more time with fam­ily and friends, do­nate more time to com­mu­nity or­ga­ni­za­tions I care about and en­cour­age peo­ple to get out and vote.

Dr. David Male­branche

My res­o­lu­tion is to ap­pre­ci­ate and ac­knowl­edge that ev­ery­one is deal­ing with some­thing in their lives even when they don’t say it. I want to be quicker in rec­og­niz­ing this in­stead of tak­ing things per­son­ally.

Sta­cie Gawrysiak

I want to enjoy the out­doors more of­ten and also take care of my­self bet­ter.

My New Year’s res­o­lu­tion is to be more present. Not only is it a re­minder to be more aware in the mo­ment, but it also serves as a recom­mit­ment to my role as an ad­vo­cate and ac­tivist. One of the eas­i­est ways to con­trib­ute to cre­at­ing change is to sim­ply show up when­ever pos­si­ble. So this year I want to be more present and demon­strate my sol­i­dar­ity by at­tend­ing more ral­lies, work­shops, and fundrais­ers.

Marla Al­cott

My New Year’s res­o­lu­tion is to get more or­ga­nized so I can find things. Yes, like ev­ery­one I want to get in shape, but my fo­cus is to get more or­ga­nized so my girl­friend doesn’t bitch at me. I tend to lose im­por­tant things, like my en­gage­ment ring, my wal­let, and more. So, I am get­ting or­ga­nized in 2016!
