As you get ready to kiss 2016 goodbye and embark on a brand new year, it is important that you NOT pack up your old baggage and take it with you into 2017.

If you were moving into a brand new home, would you bring that old, busted, worn couch from your old home? Of course not! So don't start off a brand spankin' new year with old "mess" (anger, past hurts, bitterness, excuses, etc) from 2016.

*In my best Erykah Badu voice* "Bag lady, you go hurt your back.... draggin' all these bags like that."
