Things I Need to Start Doing

I do lots of things, every day, that I wish I didn’t. I get stressed out, assume the worst, forget to do the dishes…BUT, instead of focusing on all the things I’m trying not to do, Imma take a moment to focus on what I am aiming for.  After all, it’s a lot easier to change old habits when you’re working towards new ones.
