Hello beautiful people! Spring has finally sprung in the UK and I for one cannot be happier! Spring signals warmer weather, an explosion of colour in nature and fashion. Plus, it’s my birthday this week and we’ll be heading to summer. Spring is a win win season for me. In light of all of this, I thought I would share with you, 5 things I no longer do as a single women over 30. Let’s get started!
5 Things I No Longer Do
Waiting On others
I’ve spoken about this before in a post here but, wanted to mention it here. I no longer wait on others to do the things that I want to do. It starts off with an idea and everyone is enthusiastic about it until it comes to actually implementing it. Usually that’s when it all falls apart. If I waited on others to go on trips, I wouldn’t have gone to the South of France. Nor would I have taken a cable car to see the Big Buddha in Hong Kong. So please stop waiting on others to enjoy life experiences.
Not Doing My Skincare Routine
It’s taken me some time to get to this point but, I’m not looking back. The simple act of caring for my skin is part of selfcare for me. When I don’t do it, my skin looks it and then I feel bad. So for me, having daily and monthly skincare routines are necessary and beneficial to my quality of life. Plus, being a product junkie means I get to try different things and figure out what works for my skin. When you work out what makes your skin responds well, it’s like winning the skin lottery.
Being Nice All The Time
Women especially are expected to be nice. There’s an expectation that we need to always smile in the face of adversity and to be honest, that’s a lot of BS! No I do not need to be nice to you if you’re screaming, being me or and all round idiot. I will not be nice to people who don’t deserve it. Being nice and being kind are 2 different things and I will advocate to being kind, I just don’t have to be nice to you.
Feeling Guilty for Investing in Myself
Another thing I will no longer do is, feeling guilty for investing in me. When I invest in my wellbeing, selfcare and mental health, I am able to give more to others. Guilt is a useless emotion that hinders me and you, from living life to the fullest. When I have invested in myself without feeling guilty, my life flows a lot easier. My creativity flows effortlessly and easily.
Other People’s Opinions on My Life
The final thing I will no longer do is to listen to other people’s opinions on how I should live my life. This is not to say that I don’t take on board advice that I ask for. However, I am no longer listening to random people’s opinions on what I should or shouldn’t do with my life. The choices I make need to make me feel good and for the betterment of my life. How you choose to live your life is up to you and no one gets to tell you how to live it.
Do you have a list of things that you won’t be doing anymore? Or, did my list of 5 things I no longer do inspire you to make some changes? Let me know in the comments below and let’s get the sharing going.
