I Don't Care!

I never realized how important it is to nourish my soul just as much as I nourish my body.  Feeding my soul with warmth, positivity, and love is so crucial to my well being and relationships.

"You have to grow from the inside out.  None can teach you, none can make you spiritual.  There is no other teacher but your own soul."
-Swami Vivenkananda

 Why is it so difficult for adults to allow themselves to have fun?  Why is it considered taboo to be silly?
 I have come to the conclusion that people who wear whatever the hell they want and don't care about what others deem "figure flattering" are much happier than those who waste time digging through their closets trying on outfit after outfit in an attempt to please others.  People who walk down the street wearing headphones, singing along with a skip in their step are happier than those who wouldn't dare sing in public.

We are so overwhelmed with responsibilities and requirements that we forget to enjoy life.  When is the last time that you played pretend with your child or watched cartoons?  Do you remember the last time that you acted really silly in public and didn't care that people were staring?

Why do we feel so guilty for wanting to enjoy our lives?  I truly believe in the power of positive thinking.  If you want to be happy- be.  It's really that simple.

I really hope that if you take anything from this post it is this...

Don't care if others think that you are childish because you spray the perfume samples at the cosmetic counter.  Don't care if you still ride a skateboard.  Don't care if your favorite movie is The Little Mermaid or The Labyrinth.  Don't care if you start counting down to Halloween in June.


Life is too short to worry about what others think about you or if you look ridiculous dancing in your tutu. 

Live your life and dance away my friends.


  1. That's right -- just be you, glorious you!

  2. Yes---because we only have so long on this Earth, so why spend it worrying about what others think?

  3. I couldn't agree more, we just need to be ourselves and stop worrying about what other people think... life is way too short for that...
