Things I Am Not Doing This Week

I am not going to put other people’s feelings before mine.

I am not holding conversations I don’t want to be a part of.

I am not getting involved in other people’s businesses. I am minding my business and sipping my tea.

I am not going to stop believing in my dreams and my ability to achieve them all.

I am not ignoring my heart desires and putting my needs in the back burner.

I am not going to miss my shot. I am going to take advantage of every opportunity that presents itself.

I am not going to reply to your messages and make you believe there’s a possibility of an “us”.

I am not going to ignore my books and watch TV instead.

I am not staying in on Friday night. I’m making plans with friends and doing something different for a change.

I am not going to carry the weight of the world on my shoulders and pretend everything is okay when it’s not.

I am not putting off work on my blog. I am publishing a post every day this week.

I am not ignoring my desire to be a better friend.

I am not choosing sadness. I am choosing to be happy and ignoring the bullshit.

I am not saying I’m fine when I’m far from it.

I am not overworking myself so help me GOD.
