Ringing in the New Year with one plan in mind: to own it. I always heard that when you start dipping around 40, your mindset begins to change. Well, here I am!

2016 is all about new beginnings for me and I actually really mean that. This new pattern means that I have to let go of certain behaviors and I wanted to get these thought processes down in a post just in case you were all “new year, new me” as well.

8 Things To Say No To In 2016


Say No to trying to keep up with the Jones. They are probably divorced by now anyway.


Say No to going out if you really don’t want to. The “FOMO” has to STOP.


Say No to political combat on Facebook. You know you aren’t going to change my mind and I most certainly can’t change yours. So, why are we fighting!!??


Say No to this trend of always having to be busy. Stop and smell the roses once in a while. I mean… daffodils.


Say No to spending your life watching others live their lives. It’s not about having the best seat. Get off of social media if you find yourself investing too much time in your friends’ LIVES. Go out and live your own.


Say No to trying too hard. It’s just not that important. Pinterest is super fun. Don’t get me wrong. But it’s just not happening in 2016, people. It’s just not happening.


Say No to trying to maintain a perfect life at home. Sometimes flour happens and it stinks when you are right in the middle of it all. But MAN it makes a great story later on.


Say No to tacos. Just kidding. Never say no to tacos.


Say No to anything that remotely looks like this. Please, Lord Jesus. Exert some energy in 2016. Get up and move this year.

There you have it! My top 8 things to say No to in 2016!! Did I miss anything?
