I just saw this TEDx talk by Sarah Knight: The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck
Most of you have probably seen this or at least heard of it since it’s absurdly popular.
Knight is an internationally bestselling author and this TEDx talk has been viewed millions of times. But I live under a rock of responsibilities and obligations so I missed it.
As it turns out, that is fun and ironic because I needed to hear this woman tell me (yes, she was talking to me) how I can fix my current situation.
Some of the things she talks about are similar to what we stressed-out, unhappy people have heard before but it’s presented in Knight’s own, special way. Meaning…lots of swears. Kidding. (No, I’m not. But it is intelligent, insightful, and practical, too.) She has A PLAN. A simple one that, even in the midst of misery and overwhelm, we can manage:
1. Figure out what you don’t care about.
Are you ready for the mind-blowing next step???
2. Stop caring about it.
SAY NO to those things and DO NOT FEEL GUILTY for saying it. Free up time and energy to do things that bring you joy.
I’m getting both her books. Now.
That’s the power Knight wields. (That was fun.)
Have a beautiful week, gentle readers. One full of joy.
