Inspirational crap and 2014
There is so much inspirational crap out there – how to love yourself, better your relationship, how to be your own boss, make money, lose weight, be focused – I’m exhausted just thinking about the potential my life has and which I am clearly failing at.
So here is what I think – there is something to be said for working for a boss. You know you are going to get a fixed amount at the end of the month. You don’t have to worry where the money is going to come from, all you have to do is live within your means.
Want to have a nervous breakdown? Have a heart attack or look 20 years older than you are? Own your own business!
How to love yourself? Really after all we’ve been taught about being selfish, proud and arrogant. Get used to the fact that your worst critic is yourself and that it is the hardest thing in the world to bloody love someone else never mind yourself.
Lose weight, stop smoking, exercise? Please if you haven’t done it by now you probably never will so now we back to loving yourself and other inspirational crap.
So here’s a revolutionary thought why not just despise the fact that you are who you are and that you are never going to be a supermodel, that you will marry what’s available and eventually die some meaningless death and the fact that you stopped smoking, eating meat and have a 6 pack didn’t help one bit.
So this year (and I try never to swear when I’m writing) – Fuck it – just live – hard, go to work, be grateful, eat bacon, dance and tell everyone that of course you love yourself. Who wouldn’t?
Forget all that Inspirational Crap and just live your life – the way you want to.
