here’s what i learned (and today i’m going to share my wisdom with you, esclusively, so you might as well get your little notebooks and pens out and take notes): this devil may care attitute… it’s so relieving, freeing and healing! to just not care and give a fuck about things that aren’t perfect – it’s proven to be such a good survival strategy (trust scarlett to find a nice excuse for everything). the fact that i obtained a laissez faire attitude, it has helped me a great deal to deter my mind and think about other things than the obvious worries at hand. it helps me to focus on the ‘cans’ instead of the ‘musts’. i’ve acquired a certain sense of humour about life. what the heck, so i’m not perfect? so? the sun is still bloody shining, the world is still spinning on, the shops are still selling valentino, the glossy foxes still rule the bloody town. but also, no one else really cares if i’m a mess – at least not the ones who really love me. and what’s most important: i don’t really care. strangely, all the embarassing, uncontrolled, unpolished, unprofessional, unreasonable ad unsensible things about me help me to get along, to move on, to enjoy life and, even, to like myself more. i can’t explain it, other than i suddenly feel i don’t have to be perfect all the time. i don’t care if i eat too much ice cream. i don’t care if i skip yoga because i’d rather go for a drink. i don’t care if i’m not out in the fresh air and sun, because i sleep in (with a big, fat hangover, yes indeed). my new me comes with a devil may care attitude and a healthy portion of humour about myself, and a lot of healing sarcasm. it feels so good and freeing! i can highly recommend it. so here’s to all the wild things out there, who are less than perfect – but all the more fun to be with for it. we’re not perfect – but we’re still pretty cool (or at least, we’re definitely a-okay). let’s be ourselves! let’s embrace our flaws.
disclaimer: as always, i’m not taking the blame if you should so wish to follow through with my directions (which aren’t really directions, mind, more like really fucked up views about the world…). i never said you should drink instead of do yoga, mind. and i never said you should forget your household chores and stay in bed all day. that’s not the idea (although… it might sound tempting at times…). you understand what i’m saying, right? devil may or may not care, is what i’m saying. let’s just never forget to celebrate our flaws. amen.
