Yes I said it. Right there in the title. Now that I’m ‘middle aged’ or ’40 plus’, or whatever you want to call me there are a few (many) things I no longer give a shit about. Let me tell you it’s so liberating. Clearly one of them is my potty mouth. Yes, I swear like a truck driver and I don’t care if you don’t like it. I made a list of the top 5 things I no longer care about. Do you agree?
- Going out on Friday and Saturday night is no longer an issue. There was a time when I worried I was, wasting the best years of my life, or missing out somehow on all this fun stuff. Now that I’m older, pajamas and a book, or binge watching TV sound perfect to me on Saturday night. Lemme just tell you that Netflix and Chill means something VERY different to me than the millennial crowd.
- Trends. Might seem strange coming from a style blogger. But I don’t really care that platform sneakers are back thanks to Kendall Jenner. I’m not wearing them. I am old and I would look stupid. Are there some trends I like? Absolutely. Will I adopt some. You bet. But the thing is, I don’t care if I don’t. See? See how that works?
- The fact that I am the only person on the planet that doesn’t watch Game of Thrones, or The walking Dead, or The Bachelorette. There was a time where every Friday night was devoted to Dallas and Dynasty. I could chat at the water cooler with the best of them come Monday morning regarding Joan collins and Lynda Evans and their shoulder pads. Now? Don’t care. next topic…
- Spending time with people I don’t like. I gotta be honest, this albatross off my neck is such a relief. Life is too short to make small talk with someone i don’t ike and whom I’m pretty sure doesn’t like me. Let’s just agree to move along shall we?
- My music. You better believe that I have my hair bands playing at a ridiculous decibel as I drive through town. I am Vouging in my car to Madonna like no one’s watching. Guess what? That’s because no one is watching. And if they are… you know you want my moves.
Damn there are so many other things i no longer give a shit about! Put comfort before style. Walking around without make up, eh who cares?! What about you? What’s on your list?
