Weekend Challenge: New Year's Resolutions

I'm a bit late, but let's get the Weekend Challenge off to a good start for 2021. I found a list of 56 'achieveable resolutions' for prompts this week.

Give me a number or numbers between 1 and 56 and I'll give you the corresponding resolution! Use it how you will in whatever creation you like. If you create something and link it here before midnight Thursday in your timezone, I'll reward you by making an icon of your choice, a drabble of some sort, or 100 words in one of my WiPs.

Come on down and join in! You know you want to!
