10 Ways To Not Give A Fuck

Image result for subtle art of not giving a fuck

Happy 2019 to you all!

I recently read The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck and decided to share some gems of wisdom that might benefit us all going into the New Year. Enjoy!

  1. A positive experience is a negative experience but accepting a negative experience is a positive experience: what this is trying to say is that we need to view unpleasant circumstances as a time of growth and to welcome them with open arms
  2. Pain serves a purpose and is part of the process
  3. Happiness requires struggle
  4. Good values are:
    1. reality based
    2. socially constructive
    3. immediate
    4. controllable
  5. Bad values are:
    1. superstitious
    2. socially destructive
    3. not immediate
    4. not controllable
  6. The human mind is a jumble of inaccuracy
  7. The more something threatens your identity, the more you will avoid it
  8. Define yourself in the most simple and ordinary way possible
  9. Improvement is based on tiny failures
  10. growth generates happiness

While these are not my own words, I have found them very valuable in realigning my priorities in life and learning to accept things rather than fight them.

I hope these help you as well and I would strongly encourage everyone to go read the book

Lifestyle Haul

About time I lost my blog hauling virginity!

Seriously though. I’ve never done a haul before, mostly because I’m broke but today I was lucky enough to afford some cute albeit somewhat unnecessary things. 😉

Snapchat--8402024507715178457Who doesn’t love a bit of stationary, especially Tumblr stationary. Typo is the way to go and I love the writing even more. It’s like my motto.

Snapchat-7883693439212283259In case you’re wondering it’s just plain lined paper inside just like any other notebook. The highlight really is the front!

 

Snapchat--5901074641851885828Adding onto the Tumblr-ness is this bag that I just had to get. Not just because it says “Today is going to be awesome” but also cuz I am obsessed with this shade of grey.

It has a lovely Pleather interior and a soft exterior. Nice drawstrings and this bag was acquired from Factorie Australia.

Snapchat-9074383392770716491Continuing on the mother appreciation train, she bought me a little sumin-sumin from Charles and Keith. Jeez it’s like Christmas come early for me ay?

Snapchat--7733359876299176181These gorgeous flats (because I’m not a heel girl). Sorry I had to turn the flash on my camera to show you the bling at the front which adds a nice embellishment.

And lastly but not leastly because I just had to:

That is all for my first ever haul. I hope you enjoyed seeing what I bought. I know it’s not that exciting but meh I’m very grateful and excited to actually use these things!

Have a good life 🙂
