Weeks ago a 19yr old lady called Aunt Landa and in tears she told her that although she was only 19 she had had eleven abortions. She was broken and that was baggage she wouldn't want to carry along with her into 2015.
Hearing this made me wonder if there are things I would like to leave behind in 2014. Naturally there are emotions, attitudes, habits, baggages, characters, "friends", relationships, patterns, incidents you'll like to leave behind in the past.
Since I'm always open with you guys, I'll share the things I want to leave behind in 2014. Thankfully I've dealt with the emotions, character, and attitudes I won't like to take into the new year. These are the ones I'd really like to leave behind.
Habits; (a) procrastination. I really must stop procrastinating. I sometimes do this and end up not doing things I need to do or I wait till the very last minute.
(b) laziness; or should I just say prayerlessness? I dunno why but sometimes prayer feels like a chore to me and I really need this to change. I just must make it a habit to get on my knees first thing in the morning and actually pray. Instead of (hmmm, what did I eat yesterday? Damn! I need to put my eating in check... Do I have anything to post today? I don't think so o! Oya where's that ipad let's look for what to post today...)
Patterns; Disappointments: So, this is very very very personal but me thinks I've shared more personal things on here, so... Besides I really want to say this very publicly, make a public declaration of this, because it's not happened in a while and I believe that I am COMPLETELY leaving it behind in 2014. By disappointments I'm referring to the one in relationships, the one where he loves me today and stops loving me tomorrow and has no explanation whatsoever. Good bye to that yo!
Toxic Friends; some people come in the guise of friends but these people just fill your life and the air around them with toxins and so much negative energy. These people are not good for me and I'll do all I can to ensure they're not features in my life in 2015.
Incidents; 2014 was pretty uneventful for me but one incident happened that pushed me down to my knees and caused me to burst into tears at the worst times; in traffic, during meetings, while having a quiet evening with the boo, in church... This is one incident I would love to leave behind in 2014.
What experiences/baggage/relationships/habits/memories/patterns/personality traits would you like to leave behind in 2014?
