16 for 2016
My year in review.
A year ago 2016 seemed pretty promising. I looked forward to it like a kid opening Christmas presents. Merry belated Christmas by the way. There were things in my life trying to change their position last year. Have you ever received the advice that ignoring bad behavior is the best solution? Well they obviously haven’t met a crazy man. So instead of dealing with 2015’s issues I tried to ignore them, hoping they would just fade away. I’m sharing this with you now because I realized that since I didn’t handle 2015’s problem they continuously tried to wreak havoc in 2016. So now here we are sitting at the end of 2016 and the toxic situations have once again tried to rear its ugly little head. See I hadn’t learned my lesson in 2015 so 2016 tried to be a handful. NOT ON MY WATCH AGAIN!!! I think the end of the year brings about feelings and emotions in people. And rather those emotions are good or bad, if you aren’t careful people will act on them. That’s where I am at the end of 2016. Some people in my life are trying to act on emotions that no longer suits a purpose. What does that have to do with my year in review? Glad you asked! Check it.
Things 2016 has taught me.
People often set boundaries for others that they are not interested in keeping for themselves.
It is my job to enforce healthy boundaries.
It’s totally ok to set boundaries.
YOU NEED BOUNDARIES.
5. No one in this world will treat you better than you.
6. It’s ok to indulge in self-care.
7. You are doing the best you can.
8. It’s ok to not have it all figured out, as long as you are working towards a solution.
9. There is nothing wrong with you.
10. You are worthy of love.
11. You must love yourself above all else.
ON THE KIDS
12. They are some part of you.
13. It’s more of them than you. ;-)
14. They need you. (Despite what that 16 year old says) :-)
15. They still look up to you. (Despite what that 16 year old says) :-)
16. They are little humans.
Here’s a bonus, because you know 16 + 1 is 17 and it's about to be 2017, that blogging has taught me, consistency is key. Thank you all for going with me on this journey. I appreciate your love and support. Have a great and blessed 2017.
