There Are Some Things I’m Leaving Behind With 2019….


The need to make people like me. 

The right people instinctively will like me, if I like myself. The question next year, will be do I like them?


The need to be perfect and never fail.

It’s exhausting and I am done. I make mistakes. Sometimes I win, sometimes I lose. That’s me and that’s life.

The way I talk to myself.

I would leave the room if another human being spoke to me the way I speak to myself. That ends now – and not a moment too soon.

The bad habit of putting off today.

Because now I realise that today may be all I have. That every day is a gift and not everyone sees the dawn of a new one. The time is now.


They say worrying is a waste of a good imagination, next year any spare head space will be filled with happy memories, exciting plans and dreams.

Sacrificing my happiness.

For those who do not see the blessing in my care. From now on, my needs, wants and wishes are just as important as others. I matter too.

Fearing change.

Life changes steadily, from the moment we open our eyes, until we take our last look. Change is life. Life is change. Going with the flow is the only way to ride.

Living in the past.

The past has nothing more to teach me or to give me. It is over and life moves on. I did what I did and what happened, happened. That’s really all there is to say.

Trying to fit in.

I am who I am and if I don’t feel that by now, I never will. I may not be everyones’ cup of tea and that, that is perfectly okay.
