Your ‘Fuck It’ List

Time to let go of the ‘shoulds’ and de-prioritize

You may be putting off activities for good reason, so be honest with yourself, do you really want to do them? Is there something more important you could be doing with your precious energy. Is your procrastination a sign from your intuition.

By letting them go, you can make space for what you really want/ need in this moment,

‘Action expresses priorities’.

Intrigued?

Start looking for the areas of your life plagued by “shoulds.”

arguing with reality.:

I am a yoga instructor, yet I always think it’s unnecessary when people say they should do yoga. There are many other opportunities to find inner calm or exercise or even wear those killer yoga pants. Maybe it doesn’t make sense for you, even though your friends are doing it. That’s okay.

 Take notice of the things you keep de-prioritizing.

The eisenhower box: save your time by prioritizing your tasks http://www.eenhelderhoofd.nl/wat-is-belangrijk-en-wat-is-urgent-de-grote-verwarring/ Prioriteiten stellen Wat is belangrijke en wat is urgent.:

We like to think that when we will be older, we will have ample time to get all the things in order that we neglected when we were young. Maybe you really don’t need to have your photos organized. Maybe the boxes will do. You can use the time you would have spent organizing (or trying to talk yourself into organizing) creating new memories instead.

Acknowledge that if something brings more frustration than joy, it may not be worth your time.

Sometimes it's okay to just say No. #SelfCareIsNotAStupidCandle:

There are many things that we can’t control in our lives. What we do in our free time, however, we can control. After my second knitting class, I realized that I wasn’t getting the benefits that knitting devotees swore by. I was spending most of the time silently cursing. It wasn’t my passion. I recently tossed those knitting needles. Maybe another version of me will want to pick it up, but the one I know right now certainly doesn’t. And there’s no reason to waste time trying to like something I don’t.

There’s no better time to explore this concept than during the “coulda woulda shoulda”–laden holiday season. We tend to add on to already full plates rather than using this time to sort out what isn’t actually a good use of our time.

Maybe you don’t want to travel this year. Maybe you don’t want to be in a relationship and you are enjoying the sweet freedom of being single. Toss some of those bucket list items to the side. We can start living today, with honest expressions of who we are.

Why not just say, “Fuck it”?

What Am I Here For?

Feeling the fear … and doing it anyway

I came across this quote today, which perfectly sums up the situation I’ve been in recently. I have loads of tenacity but I’ve been taking very little action.

So after months of fatigue, self sabotage, procrastination, mental conflict and battling my gripping fears I have finally begun.

Over the weekend I started making some of the changes I need to make, it’s all baby steps right now as I tread somewhat timidly towards my new life.

Now that my fears have somewhat subsided, I realize this is going to be good. Good for me and good for my children.

Today I even feel a little excited.

Ever heard of ‘The Hero’s Journey’, well I’ve finally accepted the call.

I found this short video regarding ‘The Hero’s Journey’. The woman in it Elizabeth Gilbert is my hero and mentor right now..

She calls it ‘the Quest’ and that your quest starts off with the question – ‘what am I here for?’

So what are you here for?

Check it out

Love and baby steps,
