Things better left in 2012

It's funny how when a new year rolls around, it feels like a new beginning.  Everyone is ready to change something in their lives and start fresh.  It's a comforting feeling to think we may get a second chance to do better or be better.

But let's get serious.  At the end of the day, January 1 is still just the day after December 31 and unfortunately, a lot of the negative things from 2012 ended up right alongside us on January 1.

So, without further ado, here are a few of the things I wish had stayed in 2012...

That 8 lbs I gained August - December

Psy, Justin Beiber, Ke$ha, One Direction, Lindsay Lohan, etc...

Student Loans (...all bills actually)

Dog hair & paw prints that make it impossible to keep the floor clean

Weather under 30 degrees without possibility of snow

My unhealthy need to eat the Oreo cookies my coworker has stashed in his bottom desk drawer

My fear of the future

My fear of not being a good enough person, friend, employee, wife, etc...

My husbands' old, stained yellow GA Tech sweatshirt

5 day work weeks...(they should be no more than 4 tops)

Negative social media posts tearing others down for having different personal/political beliefs

Anonymous blog comment spam 

Dog slobber (anyone who has a lab will get this)

Distance that separates me from my favorite people in the world

Sadness (yes, I have this from time to time)

Envy (this happens too)...

What would you like to leave in 2012??

Great perspective and I nodded my head all the way through this.
