My "Give a shit" list 2018

My Give a shit list 2018

I published a post the other day about how I don't really care much for my life or the things in it. I used to think I was laid back but now I'm realising that actually, it's probably deeper than that and I should maybe sort it out a bit.
So that's what I'm doing. I'm making an active choice to give a shit about the things in my life. That sounds weird doesn't it because most people give a shit about their lives so much so they get drowned in worries and insecurities. Anyway, here's my "Give a shit" list. The things I will try to care about.

♡ What I'm putting into my body ♡ 

I don't want to be as obsessive as I was a few years back when I tried to reduce my sugar intake but I want to be more mindful about what I'm actually putting into my body food wise. This falls in line with one of my New Years Resolutions to eat healthier too.

♡ How I treat myself and how others treat me ♡ 

I want to treat myself kinder; I want to care about how I treat and speak to myself because that sets the example of how others should treat me too. I want to care when people treat me in a way that I do not deserve. I want to care when people speak down to me. I want to care enough to call them out on it and to tell them that actually, that won't stand and if they carry on they can fuck off.

♡  What I'm feeding my brain ♡ 

I've always said that the media, tv, social media etc. can be detrimental to one's mental health if one doesn't keep a close eye on what they're viewing/reading/hearing on a daily basis. I have fallen victim to not care what I'm looking at. I mean, fuck, I love a good self-deprecating meme but really, it's not exactly healthy is it. Another one of my resolutions was to replace netflix with TEDtalks, documentaries, and podcasts. (which I've stuck to mainly..can't resist a good friends marathon though, unfortunately. Damn netflix.) I need to nourish my brain with interesting content that elevates me rather feeding it shit that makes me compare myself to others and makes me feel as though I'm not ~enough~

♡ My future ♡ 

I've never planned nor envisioned my ~future~ because I never really believed I had one, I know, sounds stupid, but it's the truth. Now, I actually have a goal, I actually have direction and I actually believe I can reach where I want to be. I think I'm capable of having a fantastic life filled with magic, all I have to do now is say Yes and listen to the universe and my soul. I'm exactly where I should be and now, I have faith that I will be where I want to be in the future too. 

What would you like your future to be like?

  1. This is so honest and so true, for me at least last year. This is a really positive thing to do and changing your thought processes around like that and planning for a future is really healthy. I too am trying to work on being a bit more educated and feeding my brain a bit more and also focusing on self care, good luck with it all!
