Washing Away 2015

We're going into a New Year.
What are your plans? What goals will you set? 
Which of your goals did you achieve in 2015?
What will you do differently in 2016? 
Some of us are stuck on the same ride, doing the same thing, with the same people and wonder why we're in the same position. 
Sometimes, just like rebooting a computer, we have to reboot our circumstances and ourselves in order to reprogram our lives. 
Like I've said in the past..
sometimes you have to sit back 
-review your situation 
-release it from your soul 
-in order to restore your spirit

As we near 2016, take a moment and reflect- think about your experiences in 2015- what have they taught you? Did you grow emotionally, mentally and spiritually?
What have you learned through those processes? Think about the people in your life, your family, friends, associates? Are you valued, or just a commodity? Are these people bringing peace and harmony into your life, or chaos and agony? Are they mature enough to acknowledge their errors in order to grow, or shifting the blame and living in a smokescreen?? 

Are/were you in distress? Who caused you to be in distress? Sometimes we think people care, when they don't. Stop making excuses for grown people and bad situations. You have the right to a peaceful and happy life, however, you have to rid yourself of the dead weight and toxic energy. 
Happiness and peace reside in YOU. 
No one can make you happy, and give you peace. People, situations and material things don't bring genuine happiness and peace, these are only temporary filling yet fleeting moments

Think of your situations? Who is/was there? Some people come into our lives to serve themselves- they have an agenda. When you don't serve their agenda, their true colors appear. Let them go. Understand that some people regardless of age, education level, titles, will never grow mentally and spiritually. Recognize that, and let them be. You can't fix those that don't think they're broken. 

Start 2016 by releasing all that has not served you in in a healthy, positive manner in 2015. 
Go where you're valued, and appreciated.
Quit pouring and draining your energy onto people and situations that are only wasting your time. It's okay, we all fall short into thinking certain situations/people are genuine- don't be so hard on yourself, that's life! 
But this is a fresh year, close the chapters on negative and toxic situations. You don't owe anyone an explanation. Process things for yourself. Forgive them, forgive yourself, then release them. This is a new chapter, and you are the author of your story. 
You are the authority over what continues and what stops in your life. 
Who/what you let in, 
who/what you ALLOW to stay, 
and who/what you dismiss. 
If a situation is hard for you to leave, ask God (or whomever you pray to) for guidance and assistance for the strength to walk away. 
And don't be mean, acknowledge it/them, but don't let it/them in your space, wish them well, and release it/them with love. 
TIME is the most expensive asset we have in this world, once gone, we can never get it back, so use it wisely my friends. 
Don't allow anything or anyone to steal your joy, disturb your peace or waste your precious time. 

I hope this new year brings you all that your heart desires, you deserve nothing short of the best.
