I'm guilty of saying this all the time throughout my day. In fact, it's become a habit that's been really hard to break. I'm pretty sure I'm not alone in this.
It's so much easier to say "f*ck my life" or "just shoot me already" when something goes wrong than to suck it up and deal with the problem. We're already stressed out with the hustle and bustle of our daily lives that when something doesn't go our way we get overwhelmed and suddenly it feels like the end of the world. But guess what? It's not.
But I'm putting all that behind me now. I don't want to be the crazy frantic mother who freaks out over every little thing. That's my mother...sometimes. My sister and I jokingly call her "Manic Mary" or "Panicky Patty" sometimes when she's in her freak-out mood.
My friend Mae wrote a post the other day that inspired me. Her last lines were "Life is amazing. Just open your eyes a little. And if it’s not… change it."
Instead of sitting on my ass and complaining about everything that sucks, I'm going to get up and do something to change it and make it amazing. This is part of the reason why I've been M.I.A. lately in my real life - I've been focusing on cleaning, rearranging, and redecorating the house because since this is where I spend most of my time, I want it to be a place that I love to be rather than just a place I have to be.
I've also mentioned in one of my previous posts that I've also started doing a little yoga at home and I really do want to take a real class one day soon. This has helped me to relax a little more and has also showed me how valuable a little "me" time can be. I just need to remind myself not to freak out when something goes wrong.
So from now on, "FML" will be a thing of the past. I am going to to turn "f*ck my life" into "I f*cking love my life". I hope this post inspires you to do the same. Stay positive.
