GIRL, BYE! 5 THINGS TO LEAVE BEHIND IN 2016

New Year’s is officially right around the corner! While I’m not into traditional New Year’s resolutions (I only set myself up for success) attention must be paid! It’s in our nature to hold on to things, especially if they make us feel comfortable. Most of us just really don’t like change, even if what’s comfortable is hurting us. Who want to be hurt or stagnant? NO ONE! Here are five key things we need to kiss goodbye in 2016 to fully rock out in 2017.

1. UNSUPPORTIVE FRIENDS

With all us women have to conquer these days, in order to destroy that glass ceiling, we need supportive ladies around us. If you question a friend’s motives more than you’d like to admit, it’s time to let her go. We’re only stronger if we surround ourselves with vinas who support us and who we can support.

2. ANYTHING THAT DOESN’T BRING YOU JOY

Yes, we all have responsibilities, but that extra-curricular that is leaving you half empty instead of half full, needs to go! Life is too short to be unhappy. Stop doing activities you dread, get rid of unnecessary material possessions, and de-clutter a bit!

3. PUTTING OFF THAT THING

Stop putting off that thing that you’ve been wanting to do forever. Is it a vacation, getting in shape, running that 5K? Stop putting it off until next year and do it now! We always think there’s time until there’s not. Don’t let that happen, start conquer your goals now!

4. LISTENING TO UNWARRANTED FEEDBACK

Your worth is not determined by anyone else. Constructive criticism is great, but always consider the source. Even if the advice is coming from your friend, take everything with a grain of salt!

5. SELF-DEPRECIATING BEHAVIOR

People don’t know how to value you if you don’t show them how. If you speak negatively about yourself, that shows them that it’s okay to treat to just as bad as you treat yourself. Be your biggest fan and set the tone for how you expect to be treated. Also, it doesn’t hurt to surround yourself with women who guide you to do this themselves!

2017 should be all about being good to yourself and others. Let go any and all behavior that negates positive vibes and move onward and upward!
