12 Things to End When 2012 Ends

20132012 will end in just a few days.  Douglas Poole has an excellent blog post out today listing 12 other things it’d be good to bring to an end along with the old year.

  1. A grudge - Forgive, let go and move on. Failing to forgive is like drinking rat poison and waiting for the rat to die.
  2. That unhealthy relationship - No need to be mean, just wise. Then put boundaries in place to keep their junk from fouling up your life any more than it already has.
  3. Blame – Accept responsibility for what is yours and move forward.
  4. Isolation – We are not healthy when we are alone.
  5. Waiting for certainty – Take the God-led risk and start creating.
  6. Excuses – Find a solution.
  7. The justification of mediocrity – It has never changed anything.
  8. A rut – Blaze a new path.
  9. The quest for perfection – It is shallow and totally uninteresting.
  10. The pursuit to be a copy – You were put here to be you.
  11. “Someday…” talk – Start living today.
  12. Stuckness – Left foot, right foot, breathe; left foot, right foot, breathe.

Thanks to Douglas for allowing me to repost this list from his blog.

Anything you plan on leaving behind in 2012?
