Hashtag Monday: #LeaveItIn2012 - 5 things

Well here we are again. 2012 is almost in the books and for those of us that made it - Amen and let's keep fighting the good fight. I went back and reviewed my New Year's posts from the past few years - after 2009, I went on a mini-rant (unfortunately, I still rant about some of those same things now). After 2010, I made a sort of checklist of accomplishments, lessons learned and areas for improvement. Um... still working on those improvement areas. (That was an eye-opener) I kicked off 2012 with a determination to do what I could to get Obeezy re-elected and basically do better in other areas of my life. Done and done.

But for some reason, this year just felt a little hard. I'm definitely wrapping up the year on a high note which I appreciate but 2012 felt like it was an uphill climb. Which I suppose is better than a downhill slide. At any rate, there are some things we can go ahead and dead prior to 2013. Let's #LeaveItIn2012, shall we?

1. All things Mitt Romney - he lost. Buh-bye. I no longer am required to care what he's doing or why. Let's keep it that way.

2. Oversharing on these here intersocialwebmedia sites - That goes for me too. Yeah, I'm semi-sorta dating someone. That's all you need to know for now.

3. Ranting about the Cowboys (or you may insert frustrating sports franchise of your own here) - I've done this rant for at least 5 years straight. Nothing changes. Jerry's ego won't allow it to. I'm resigned to living with Silver & Blue shame. Le Sigh. 

4. Trying to achieve Wonder Woman (SuperMan) status - This is something we all have to work on. American society as a whole has us programmed to "be our best selves' and "live life to the fullest" and sometimes if we aren't out there making moves, hustling and turning our lives into shining examples of 'get-like-me-ness' we feel like we haven't done enough - or is that just me? Anywho, I'm over it. This is the first year I haven't averaged 3 - 5 blog posts per week. On the one hand, I feel bad about it because we have a great community here and the more I blog, the more awesome people I meet. On the other hand there are 8766 hours in a year, sounds like a lot but my do they fly.

5. Nonsense, Foolery and Shenaniganism - I don't know about you but it seems like I put up with a lot more of shiggity than one should this year. If you find yourself defriended, blocked or banned - well, buh bye now. In 2013, it's less stress and more positive progress. 

Anything to add to the #LeaveItIn2012 list? Please share...

This tickled me so. It's like we can't even get too excited anymore, for fear we'll jinx it. In any case, I hope things go well for you.

Thanks for this blog and all the stuff you've shared with us this year. I truly enjoy this little corner of the world. Wishing you all the best and continued blessings in 2013.

Morning Chele! I'm loving #5 and in total agreement!  As for #2, yeah there was definitely a lot of that, especially too much negativity. Those folks will find themselves in the #5 category. Glad to hear you're semi-sorta-kinda-maybe dating someone, but that's where I have a problem with #2, you know we want more! LOL!!!...Good luck hope it works out, but if not have fun in the process!

Happy New Year BougieLand!!!

BWAHAHA at Number 2. Much as we love hearing about your dating life, it might be wise to just go low key and let us know where to send an e gift card.
As for me, I'm taking that #5 to a whole new level this year.
Ev'body be safe out there - see ya in 2013.
Chele - no state of the Bougie union this year?

I don't mind you not sharing everything, Chele. Boundaries have a purpose, I ain't mad at ya when you set them.

For 2013, in the immortal words of the great Don Cornelius -  I wish you love, peace, and soooooouuuuuuuulllll!!!
