43 things - a renowned barometer of human desire - is listing the world's new year's resolutions. Listed above are the most popular hopes for 2010, according to over 120,000 entries (and counting).

They are, I suppose, inevitably predictable. But the things we hope for are often fairly fundamental: happiness; love; comfort; health.

During The Teens' Speech project, we've naturally been exploring the concept of hope. So we've decided to create a Twitter topic to share our own hopes for the future. It's called #hopes2010. We'd love you to take part on Twitter and share your aspirations for the new year, however earnest or frivolous.

If you do play along, please link back to this post so everyone might think about the more sobering aspirations of young people struggling to make sense of the world.
