10 Things You Must Give Up to Move Forward in 2013 {Infographic}


I came across this on Facebook the other day, and realized that I actually have dealt with all 10 in some shape or form. I can’t guarantee I can let it ALL go but I certainly can try.


Do you see yourself in any of these? Which ones?
