6 Negative Things You Absolutely Do NOT Need In 2019
‘New year, New me’ is a common refrain this time of the year. Yes, no one gets points for originality, this is by far the most overused at this point, but hey it’s good to be positive. Maybe, just to make yourself sounds interesting, you can use it as an Instagram caption, Consider this, though, what if you really did imbibe this? You let go off of all the toxic people, habits and turned over a new leaf ? Dramatic but worth a thought. Before you move on to adapting new things, you might want to consider letting go of a few to make some room. Here are 6 things you absolutely don’t need in 2019.
Your Ex’s thoughts, things & troubles
You’ve got to leave him, his old tee you wear as your night shirt and his number, all back in 2018. You don’t need any more of that, his time has EXpired (see what I did there?) and it’s time you clean your closet, your inbox and even purge your heart. Nobody said it was going to be easy but it is going worth it. Send him/his stuff packing!
2. Insecurities about yourself
It’s a lot of fun to drown ourselves in glasses of wine and wallow in self-pity but that was 2018. 2019 is not about letting self-doubt get to you. Do away with those body-shaming thoughts and own up to just how you beautiful you are, as is. You’ll realise your self-doubt probably weighs far more heavily on your mind and body more than those pounds you’re worried about shedding!
3. Past Grudges
Don’t weigh yourself down by harbouring all that bad blood. The new year should be about releasing all those toxins, which includes discarding all those bones you had to pick. So, forgive that friend, make that call, make the first move. As Elsa would say, ‘Let it go!’
Those credit card bills
Start 2019 by getting done with your money woes and paying off all that debt. This new year should be all about being in abundance, and it should be of anything but bills.
Don’t step into the new year with a bunch of expectations only to end up getting disappointed. Whether it’s your weight, your career prospects or your love life, don’t demand that life dole out excellence in every department from the word ‘go’. Work hard but also cut yourself some slack if things don’t go exactly like you wanted!
All that sloth
You’ve lazed around enough for the coming years and it’s time you see your transformation from a panda to a lioness. Get proactive, get moving and take a walk that’s not just confined from your bed to the phone charger and back. This is the year of energy! Give me a ‘yay!’
