December 11 – 11 Things http://www.reverb10.com/december-11-11-things/
Today's prompt at Reverb 10 was a good one that I'd like to share. Here it is and my response is below. How about writing your own?
What are 11 things your life doesn’t need in 2011? How will you go about eliminating them? How will getting rid of these 11 things change your life?
By Tiffany Young
Only 11? I guess that's enough for now.
My No. 1 thing to gt rid of is people who put me in a box. Do you have any of these people in your life that always thinks they know who you are and what you're thinking but they are way off? You think you're close with them, but then the negative comments come through and ruins your day? Those are the people I'm getting rid of in 2011.
No. 2 is all the extra clothes I've been meaning to get rid of, but never do. I have too many clothes for my closet and bedroom and car all put together, but I let them sit around doing no good for me or anyone else. Those days are gone!
No. 3 will be working many, many hours without getting any closer to my goals. In the new year my current job will have to give me more than it has been or I'll have to figure something else out. I love parts of my job, but the parts I don't are going to have to disappear!
No. 4 is the papers I have around my room. Things need to either be in a filing cabinet or put away somewhere or dealt with. No more keeping paper out until I figure out what to do with it. When in doubt, throw it out!
No. 5 (this is fun, btw) is my dirty car. I'm not getting rid of the car, but cleaning it up and giving it the attention it deserves!
No. 6 is worrying what others think of me. It's none of their business! I'm never going to be what they want me to be, so why try?
No. 7 will be spending money so easily. This past month I've been spending money every time I turn around and I need to take back control of my finances.
No. 8 is timidity. Gone are the days of feeling incompetent. I've proven myself otherwise and need to believe that's true!
No. 9 is my storage space. I originally only got storage because I was going to buy a house soon, but since that hasn't happened and isn't on the horizon, I need to clean out that space and save the money I'm putting into the wasted space.
No. 10 is trying to read every blog I'm subscribed to. It's just never going to happen. If I want to read it I will, but I shouldn't feel I need to.
No. 11 is I'm letting go of things I once wanted to accomplish, but now no longer care about. This is hard for me! I want to accomplish anything and everything I ever wrote down as a good idea to do someday, but I've changed a lot over the years and need to deal with that.
