That magical time of the year is upon us again!! That time when we start looking forward to 365 new opportunities to make the wrongs rights, when the whole world appears to be on our platters and Sun shines brighter (metaphorically!). Yes, that time of the year when we start counting down for the new year, when we hope to create a better tomorrow for ourselves. But in order to create a better tomorrow, first and foremost we need to leave behind Yesterdays. So people, after thinking (and overthinking) here are a few things you better not carry on with yourselves next year…

That 26” waisted skinny jeans: Okay!! Acknowledged.. you were skinny once (please focus on once). You are not now. And I mean it in a loving and fun way babes. You now have curves which can give Beyonce a run for money. Love your curves. Curvy you is prettier you. Give those jeans away, if they did not fit you in the last 2 years probably they never will. Get over it. Hanging your hopes high will probably not solve any purpose. Declutter your wardrobe and make space for new ripped ones…

Those extra kilograms that make you catch breath: 
Before you start calling me confused because I asked you to throw away jeans and kgs all at once, let me be clear, I don’t want you to go back to that jeans yes. But I do want you to get back into that Little Black Dress. Also, I don’t like to see you catching breath, after few flights of stairs. You ran like a wind once girl… You can be skinny if you want or curvy if you want but I want you to take care of yourself. Declutter your body and make space for the new improved you.

Those “friends” who never have time for you:
 Let’s face it! You called 20 times and planned to meet 20 times last year. Somehow you are the one who keeps calling and you do not remember last time you got their call. The message is pretty clear here, right? I am surprised that a smartass like you did not get it at the very first time. Stop doing that now alright. Let them come back to you and then decide if you have spare time left from your super-tight schedule of being awesome all the time. Declutter your time and make space for some new and better friends…

Those memories of a long lost ex: If you are as smart as I hope and want you to be, you must have deleted his number from your cellphone. But what do we do to this super awesome brain which serves as a storage house for all the crap? Here I hope that sense must have prevailed by now and there are no instances of crying and whining phone calls. But in case you need to be reminded, that person is an ex for a reason. Every time you miss him (which is all the more likely this time thanks to holiday season), take a minute and think of all the times that man/woman made you feel not good enough. I mean seriously, you and not enough? You could be guilty of being too much at times I agree but never not enough. Let go of him/her who does not deserve you. Declutter your heart from ‘X’ and make space for some ‘Y’s and ‘Z’s…

That feeling of regret: You have been carrying that regret for so long now that you can also change your middle name to regret. “If only I took up that job”, “If only I did not marry that jerk” or “If only I had the courage to follow my passion”. You did not do what you should have done and what you wanted to do for so long. Fine, Guilty! But what is stopping you now? Get up and dress the part and get out and go rule the world. Again metaphorically although you can do a better job than most so-called world leaders. Declutter your soul from regret and make some space for hope.

Have a wonderful New Year people. Hope all of you find your purpose in life. Don’t forget to share your thoughts on the comments below.
