10 Things to Say Goodbye to in 2016

Feel stressed out? Feel like you could be happier? Do you feel burdened by life's circumstances and stuck? Me too! Just being honest. It isn't that I am not thankful. I just thought life would like different at 35 then it is. I am just being transparent. The more I write the more I realize that I am lost. I never pictured a chronic illness in my future. Yet, here we are and here it is.

I am learning that walking away from a career in the corporate world to follow my heart is much harder than I thought it would ever be, still two years later. What defines a successful writer? What defines being a successful mother? Sister? Wife? Friend? Daughter? I am sure of none of this. I am letting go of a lot of things and leaving them in the year of 2016. I need to become a better person tomorrow. In order to do that I am saying goodbye to somethings for this year.

I have to learn how to let go of the person I thought I should be at 35 in order to be the person I really want to be at 35. Goodbye to anything in life that is holding me back from reaching my potential.

10 Major Goodbyes

1. I going to say farewell to my major stress. I am going to let go of my fear of judgement that most have probably thought I already have let go of. Really deep down inside, I hold onto wanting to be validated.

2. Elimination of stressors that make my immune system week.

3. Goodbye to those that make me feel guilty for doing what I truly want to do.

4. Let go of things I wish went differently. Somethings I just can not change no matter how hard I wish.

5. Relationships that are not what I wanted them to be and just except them for what they are. At one point in your life, that “whatever" was exactly what I wanted.

6. Let go of worrying. I am living IN the day.

7. I am saying goodbye to blaming anyone for anything that has happened in the past. It's time to get over it and tell a new story. I am my own person. I am in charge of my own life. If I don't like something, I have two choices, accept it or change it.

8. Goodbye to complaining I am broken. I am the way I am for a reason. There is a purpose in my brokenness.

9. Goodbye to the feeling of needing to do more and be more. I always hustle to the break and have done the best I can. I am enough. I do enough. Being a mom/wife is enough.

10. I am not in charge of everyone. I am the mom of 3 not 93. I am taking care of me and those 3 as best as I can!
