What better way than to ring in the new year with an R and R day? Reading and relaxing, and focusing on short term goals. I'm entering this roaring 20's decade with the word energy on my mind. Specifically, the intention is to keep my own energy upbeat and focused, free of oppressive vibes and negativity.
When contemplating leaving this decade, I feel a little like Lot's wife today. For those of you unfamiliar, Lot's wife (she is unnamed in KJV), is reluctant to leave what she knows and the good times her family experienced in a particular city, even though better things may lie ahead. I relate.

Most of our problems are caused by the individual in the mirror. Take an honest inventory of yourself - do you have toxic tendencies? Even if you don't, what patterns or behaviors have you tolerated that are bringing you down? What are you allowing that is inconsistent with your dreams and future plans?
