50 Ways to be the most fucking awesome version of yourself.

50 Ways to be the most fucking awesome version of yourself

Being fucking awesome, quite literally, means to elicit awe.

 

The other day, I was sitting in a cafe — by myself, laptop in front of me — feeling anything but awesome. I felt envious of the people around me who seemed so über-cool, and relaxed, wearing the trendiest neo-hippy rags, and seemingly without any (self-imposed) deadlines hanging over their heads.

 

I observed myself, with my still-wet-from-the-shower imperfect hair,  cut-off shorts, and tired look on my face — clearly feeling a little bit not-in-awe of myself at all.

 

I was feeling generally not fit enough, not rich enough, not smart enough, not quick enough, not fresh, new, hot or “original” enough. We have all felt like that, from time to time.

 

Until I remembered that, unlike most people, I am living my dream: being creative, helping people and traveling, plus running a soulfully and financially rewarding business to boot, from the tiny office that is comprised of just my laptop and a few notebooks, from any place with decent internet, that I can find.

 

And that’s pretty fucking awesome. Even if it does occasionally mean messy hair, tired eyes and deadlines looming.

 

The thing is, being awesome is simply about making a decision to be your best self, and recognising that your best self truly is awesome. There are a lot of ways to be awesome: being awesome is being redefined each and every day. It’s all about seeing our own self-worth and building on what we already are and have.

 

And once we make that decision, we have to fuel that powerful new belief of awesomeness, with interests, talents, creative pursuits and eccentric ventures that say “Yep, everything I do is fucking awesome”!

 

Behold:

 

50 Ways to be the most fucking awesome version of yourself.

This is what it would look like to me: if I was Queen of the World I would…..

18. Love yourself so much, that loving someone else becomes easy. When we love ourselves fully first, giving and receiving love to another becomes easy. But many of us are still so full of wounding and hurt, that we create painful situations for ourselves and others that simply encourage old patterns of behaviour that don’t truly support us, or what we want to experience anymore. Why the ones we want run and the ones we don’t cling.

 

19. Speaking of love, here’s something else about love that you should know: The Gypset Guide To Romantic Love. (Because Love Is Free). Because it will make you fucking awesome.

22. Negativity is, well… negativity. It really brings the vibe down. And if you’re one of those people who is usually totally, enthusiastically, awesomely positive, then hanging around (and loving) people who aren’t positive, can be really fucking annoying and challenging. What to do if your partner (or best friend, or sister) is a whinge-pants.

 

23. Your parents and grandparents are (definitely) stopping you from having the life that you want (and deserve). This is not about blaming. It’s about recognising the truth, and then doing something about it. Because that’s what makes you the most fucking awesome person ever! Being empowered, and taking charge of your life.

25. Something that has become abundantly clear to me recently, is the fact that most of us have no fucking clue how to truly receive what we want and what we are given.

26. Sometimes we just have to say “fuck it” to everything. And that’s awesome too. When My Van Broke Down Last Week, I Entered the ‘Fuck It’ Phase

 

27. There is a beautiful balance in everything we do. Often we might think that life is so very one-sided, and to be truly awesome, you have to embrace only one side of the coin. Especially if you are, or aspire to be, a creative entrepreneur. Here’s one explain where that’s simply not true: Creativity and Routine ::: a Note for Entrepreneurs.

 

28. The other day, I had a really horrible conflict with a friend. We both were terribly upset about how we mis-communicated, and I was sorry that things had gotten so out of hand. Not awesome! Want folks to forgive you / let go / make up with you now? Write a love letter…

Which is why I wrote this: Why You Shouldn’t Have A Morning Routine. That doesn’t mean that finding routines and rituals that work for you is a bad thing. The key here is: doing things that work for you. Not trying to fit yourself into a system that someone else has prescribed.

45. Being judgemental is like saying “No! I don’t accept life in every form that is transpires in!”. It’s really negative, and saying no to life is… well, saying no to life. We want to say and emphatic YES to life, while also being discerning about what we choose to experience and have. So, you think you want to stop being judgemental? 6 pieces of advice.

47. Sometimes, we have been living in one place for a really long time. And we feel like it might be time to go on adventures and have new experiences.

Knowing that, do you want to be like the 5 people you spend the most time with? If not, then this will help: How to end destructive relationships without ruining anyone’s life. (Or your own.)
