Choose Your Fucks To Give

I am starting to get to the age where I need to start deciding what matters the most to me. So, Shaun and I have been deciding what our main priorities are in our lives. It has been eye opening for both of us, because we discovered what we need to do to move forward towards our dreams, and what we value the most.

Coincidently, I am currently reading The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck” by Mark Manson and he starts by reminding us that we have limited fucks to give in our lives. There are so many things in life that we are told to care about, but we don’t need to, like materialistic things. Everyone feels like they need fancy houses, fancy cars, the nicest clothes, but in reality none of it matters. We need to start thinking about what things truly matter to us individually. It may be cars, but you aren’t getting the cars everyone tells you you should. You are getting cars that you have a connection with, and that make you happy every time you see them and drive them. We need to remember when we die, those cars do not matter anymore, what matters are the people and memories we had with them.

This week, I have been thinking about how far Shaun and I have come this past year. We have grown in so many different ways, but now I think we need to grow in the way of giving less fucks. I don’t mean that in a bad way. I mean it in the way of being weighed down by negative energies from things that don’t matter. It can be from something I saw on a TV show, or how someone dressed at the store. Those are things that don’t affect my personal life, but I still carried that negative thought with me. The more negative thoughts that I carry, the more those negative energies flow into my life. Then that negative thought carries over into my home life, and slowly it spirals further and further down.

Now, I am trying to make it a priority to have a more positive life. The positive energy will then flow through other parts of my life. I have so many other things to worry about, that I want to make sure I don’t have any extra weight anymore. Life will always have stresses, especially as a business owner, and I want to make sure that the things I stress about are important to me. Someday, there will be a point when we all realize that we gave way too many fucks about stupid shit. Right now, in the US there is too many stupid things that a majority of people are giving fucks about that don’t really matter. They will one day wake up when they are old and realize that they wasted most of their life for a stupid cause. Once again, I’m not saying everything is stupid, but figure out what TRULY matters to you and your future self.

Be the person that you mentally dream of being. Stop caring what other people think or what other people are doing. You only have a limited amount of fucks to give and one day you won’t have anymore. So, live the life that your future self can look back on and be proud of
