Your Fresh Start for 2011

As the end of the year approaches, many of you may be sitting by the lava lamp and writing down your resolutions for the new year: 

Do you plan to get back into your "skinny jeans"? 

Be more plugged in to social media... or less? 

Quit smoking once and for all? 

Manage stress better? 

Drink less alcohol?

Make more time for your family, friends, loved ones? 

Finally go after that master's degree you've been putting off? 

Make a barbeque recipe to rival Uncle Jack's secret sauce?

Hone on your DIY skills to become a "Mister or Miss Fix-it"?   

As you reflect on the days that have passed in 2010, and set the bar high for yourself, share your plans with us. 

We want to hear not only what your goals are, but what your game plan is for achieving them. 

How do you plan to keep the goal in mind, and not have it dissolve at the first whiff of a hot Krispy Kreme donut?
We'd like to help. 

Your project could become the focus of a CNN Newsroom segment, complete with expert advice, and planning tips to help you and those inspired by you... to succeed.

So rather than spend the next 12 months ruminating about what you didn't achieve last year...  plug-in and prepare for a fresh start and share your plan with CNN Newsroom.

My America Is...

15 days until the midterm election.

Amid all the mudslinging and political promises, it's easy to lose sight of what elections are really about.

 They are about shaping what this country is about and setting a course for where we want to see it go.

On this show, we want to get back to basics. To brass tacks. The core beliefs. So we're asking you to help us answer one simple question:

            What does "America" mean to you?

 It's a segment we're calling, "My America is..." 

And we want to hear from you.  We want to hear your personal experiences.

Your vantage point.  Your everyday life in this nation. What does this country look like from where you’re standing?     

Leave us your thoughts. We’ll share some of them on air in the CNN Newsroom, 11am — 1pm ET
