Have you figured out what your one "word" will be that's the theme 2021? For me, my one word is "intentionality". It came to me some time in Dec of last year while praying for guidance in 2021. For me, intentionality means being conscious of how I spend my time, who I spend my time with, and what I spend my time on.
I thoroughly enjoy the downtime I had in 2020 given the forceful pandemic shutdown. I had a lot of time to reflect, and I realized I wasted time on things and people. So for me, 2021 is all about me protecting my time.
Soooo...I encourage anyone to reclaim their time as Representative Maxine Waters stated so boldly. Everyone doesn't deserve your time, your space, or your energy. That goes for relationships, friendships, work relationships, family members, and anybody else you interact with. Time is precious so if you feel someone is wasting your time, reclaim it and remove yourself from the situation.
So what types people should you keep your 👀 on because they can easily be wasting your time?
The "Indecisive" type: This type of person don't know what they want in life. They are indecisive about a lot of stuff and are just living life with little direction. Why should you surround yourself with someone like that when they can't do much for you because they can't do much for themselves right now? Now, it's okay to not know everything; however, the issue is when the person doesn't know anything and relies on the opinions of other people.
The "Gossiper" type: This type of person thrives off of being in everyone else's business and then siting and talking about it. What benefit do you get out of that? NOTHiNG. It's crazy how some people spend more time in other people's business than they do with their own. Bruh...grow up, you have way too much time on your hands.
The "I'm content" type: This type of person doesn't have any desire to challenge themselves and become better each and every day. Life is about discovering and growing every day so that you're a better version than the day before. The person who likes how life is as it is can't do anything for you because they are stagnant and content. How are they going to motivate or encourage you?
The "Negative Nancy or Negative Nate" type: This type of person always has something negative to say about everything and everybody. They are known as highly pessimistic individuals. They see the glass half empty vs half full. This person will suck the energy and excitement out of you all because of their lack of optimism.
The "Complainer" type: This type of person has something to complain about all the time. They are selfish people who only want things their way or the highway. You don't need a complainer who doesn't know how to make lemonade out of lemons.
The "Manipulator" type: This type of person knows your secrets, likes/dislikes, and other pertinent info about you and chooses to use them strategically against you just to get their way. You don't need to be around people who have hidden agendas. Are there even any honest people still out there?
