I know you have all heard of bucket lists and what their purpose is. I'm here to show you a new way of thinking about resolutions and how a f*-it list is more my style.
Bucket lists are for the new things you want to do, places you want to go, and unfortunately, the same resolutions that somehow keep showing up, year, after year....after year.
Common bucket list topics include:
Get in shape
Stop dating morons
Drink more water
Save more money
Try a new fad diet
Take a trip
No, this time i'm going to eat healthier....promise
Finally break those toxic ties
Find the love of your life
Sound like you've been here before? I think we all have.
To be able to experience real, genuine self-love, you need to take all that toxic crap out of your life.
If you want to see change in your life, you really have to get to know yourself. What are your values? Do you even know them? Write them down, your current values, and values you wish you had. Then, support those with explanations on how you can pursue those values.
What motivates those behaviors? Is it moving you forward, is it serving your wellness?
Or, is it blocking your growth?
Put your list away.
Go back to it in a week.
Review it. Edit it. Re-write it.
This new list reflects who you are.
Write down everything you want to do in the new year, then write everything down that has prevented you, limited you, and blocked you from doing those things in the past. Name people who have hurt you, who have not believed in you, who have not supported you, and all the things that have moved you to feel less about yourself, all the things that have caused you to love yourself less, and everything that has caused you to believe those false truths you had about yourself.
This now is your F*-it list.
Put your Bucket list and your F*-it list up on the refrigerator, mirror, bedroom wall- wherever you can see it daily.
One list serves the other.
What do you have to get rid of in order to achieve the goals you have set for yourself in the new year?
