11 things I don't need. 11 things I'll try to eliminate in 2011.
1. I don't need One World Governance. Individual countries need to keep their freedom.
2. I don't need higher taxes. The economy won't improve unless people have money to spend, after all.
3. I don't need my freedoms being restricted in the name of security.
These three, all I can do about them is to protest the bills being passed that pave the way for these things to happen; and to use my voting power wisely; and to be aware, informed and unafraid. Keep my eyes open. Look for the light.
4. I don't need the procrastination I exude towards my writing. This is probably the easiest, and hardest, to eliminate...just by sitting down and making myself write.
5. I don't need poverty, and I don't need riches. However, I also don't have riches so I can't get rid of that one...and I've been trying to get rid of poverty for a long time. Perhaps I need to reevaluate my definition of poverty.
6. I don't need stress. I am learning to manage the things I find stressful and I am getting better at not internalizing things I don't need to.
7. I don't need meaningless anger. With learning what to internalize and what to shut out, I am getting better at eliminating this one too.
8. I don't need hatred. I am letting go of resentment, and with it goes the hatred and the anger.
9. I don't need censorship. From myself or from others. And this is solved by learning to hear myself, to allow myself to use my true voice, and to fight to be heard.
10. I don't need to be given smurf bites by my dog. This one is going to take some time and training. Possibly professional help.
11. I don't need my furniture to be destroyed by said dog. Again. Professional help may be required.
