Do New Year’s resolutions work for you? Nope? Me neither. My ever-present dedication to lose ten lbs, eat less junk food, exercise more, floss daily, and stay out of the sunshine unless I’m wearing SPF1000 sunscreen, somehow always seems to go by the wayside by no later than February 1st. Therefore, for 2016, I’m trying a different approach: I’m creating a doable list devoted to things I can shed/toss/throw away. Who’s with me?

My primary goal is to keep this list short and simple: I’ll be checking back December 31st, 2016 to review how this plan unfolded.
KIMBA’S LIST OF THINGS TO LEAVE BEHIND IN 2015
Periods. Listen up menopause fairy: I’m 52 years old. My prime baby birthing years have long passed. Let’s move things along, shall we? The monthly visits from Aunt Flo need to go.
Nose hair. I don’t know when this happened, but a good hard look in the mirror this morning revealed that I’ve sprouted a crop of nasal carpeting. This instantly makes me look like my Nana. Now I love my Nana, but this stuff is just gross. Time to invest in some serious clippers.
Shoes that hurt my feet. It’s time to retire the four inch big girl shoes. I just can’t handle the consequences. Hey, I’m not saying I’m relegated to birkenstocks and support knee-highs. But, I need to admit that *CFM* stilettos only result in blisters and a backache.

My over–flowing house porn. Houston, I have a problem: I can’t resist shelter magazines. My house is covered in glossy images of sunny beach cottages, comfy mountain cabins, cute cape cods, and remodeled colonials. I gotta get a grip and learn to pass through the check-out line without being mesmerized by all the pretty house photos.
Perfectionism. I declare 2016 the year Kimba officially gives up perfectionism. Though this flies in the face of my Virgo instincts, this recent advice has me re-evaluating my priorities: no one cares if it’s perfect except you. Damn, that was a serious epiphany. A slap yourself in the forehead realization.
