10 Things I Don’t Give a Crap About

Sharing is caring!

I’m a pretty caring and loving kinda girl. Really I am. I care about people, a lot. I care about the environment and poverty and my hair. Yes, I care a lot about my hair. I care about a lot of things. But then there are things I don’t give a crap about.

Check out my list and tell me what’s on your list.

So I care about a lot of things, besides my hair, like my health, my business, my family. You know, the normal things people generally care about.

Why am I sharing this with you? Because maybe after you see my list, and if any of these things weren’t on your list before, maybe they might go on there in the future. Maybe when you see some of the things I don’t care about you will see that they are, in fact, senseless things that you shouldn’t care about either.

Things I don’t care about

Now before I start, please don’t think I’m a big meanie or that I’m a cold heartless bee eye tee cee aitch. Because I’m not. It’s just some of these things are soul sucking and exhausting. I have zero interest in any of it.

What you think about me

Nope, don’t give a hoot about that. I used to. It used to drive me nuts if I thought for one second someone didn’t like me. How could that be? How could you not like me? I get it now. I’m not everyone’s cup of tea.  I’m a bit of an in your face gushing sweetness and F bombs kinda girl and then I don’t know when to shut up sometimes so ya, I get how not everyone will like me. That’s cool. I don’t really care anymore. Like not at all.

15 Things Women in Their 50’s Don’t Gaf About

The price of things

Gas prices are up or down, hydro is expensive, cigarettes cost more, taxes are increasing…oh good Lord, alright I get it.  Prices are going up. Enough about it already. Can you do anything about it? Probably not. I’m so tired of hearing about it. Do you have money to pay for gas? Yes, wait you have a car, right? And you can pay for hydro, and everything else, right? I’m currently in a third world country where they don’t even have money for food. Shut up about your gas prices. I don’t care.

About all your aches and pains

Ok so that may sound really insensitive and I’m really sorry, but if you are one of those people who are always complaining about your latest pain, ya I don’t give a hoot about it any more and stop talking about it. It’s annoying and boring. Shut up about your knee and your elbow and your big toe. Good grief. Honestly, no one wants to hear about it any more. (I’ll speak for the masses here, you’re welcome) People honestly and truly don’t want to hear other people’s complaints. They don’t. There, I said it.

If I die tomorrow

I don’t give a crap about when I die, really, because every day I live my life to the absolute fullest. I don’t care if I die tomorrow and anyway, apparently the afterlife is soooooo super cool. Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t really wanna die tomorrow because I’m kinda really lovin’ life in Guatemala but if by some chance, well….it’s ok. I’m cool with it. (not like I have much choice any way)

Politics

I’m so politically challenged it’s not even funny. Trump, Biden, Trudeau, bla bla bla. Please don’t talk to me about politics. I’m a Canadian living in Guatemala. I’m blissfully ignorant. I don’t pay attention to politics because it’s confusing and full of lies, hate and anger. I don’t have time for all that negative energy.

How hard done by you’ve been

Oh trust me, I so get this one. I listened to myself cry the blues about my terrible life for years. Everybody did me wrong. My boyfriends, my parents, my family, you name it, everybody did me wrong. It was a nightmare. And I went on and on about it for years. My poor friends!!!! Why didn’t they tell me to shut up already?? Man, how dreadful it must have been for them to listen to me. To all my friends now, I’m sorry. If you’re one of those people who goes on and on and on….just stop. Please.

The latest fashion trends

Especially for women over 50. Don’t wear this, do wear that, long hair makes you look old, don’t wear high heels wear these loafers instead. OMG shut up. How about I just wear what I want, when I want and not wear what you think I should wear because I’m over 50.

Oy…how exhausting and stifling.

10 Things Women Over 50 Should Never Wear

What everybody else is doing

I don’t give a crap about what the neighbours are doing. Is Jane having an affair behind Tom’s back? Did you know that Sally drinks too much and she’s on antidepressants? You know what? I don’t care. It’s none of my business and I could not care less about anyone else’s private life. You wanna know what I care about? Spreading love, smiles and helping people as much as I can.

If you’re vaxxed or not

Listen, that’s your business. Whether or not I’m vaxxed or not is my business. I’m so tired of people fighting over this. It’s sad and pathetic. So many friendships ended, families torn apart over this. I won’t ask you and please don’t ask me.

Getting old

Yes, I’m getting old. I’ll be 60 this year. Yes, it’s slightly unnerving but I don’t give a crap about getting old. I had an amazing and colourful life. I traveled a lot, I changed and grew a lot, I inspired and motivated millions of people. I lived a full life. Getting old is part of life and I don’t really care about it anymore.

I don’t give a crap about negative things

As you can see, most of the things on my list are negative or illicit a negative response. I can’t deal with that. With negative stuff. It’s exhausting. Did you know it takes just as much energy to be negative as it does to be positive?

Stop wasting time engaging in negative things and start spending more time doing and thinking positive things. Life is short. Use each day to spread love, light, kindness and joy, not negativity.

And then watch how your world changes. You’re welcome.

  1. Love this list…what I love even more, is WE think alike!! Our lists are mirror images ♡♡♡

    1. Hey Sandy thanx for dropping your thoughts!! So glad there are others who kinda think like me, mind you that’s also kinda scary..lol. :D

  2. Hilarious – you have a very colorful way of putting things Iva :) I too don’t care about these items you mentioned and feel like caring about these things is what cripples us in life. I’m not even sure what is my favorite – every single one of these things resonate with me. TV is the greatest time waster in our lives – not missed it for one day in the last 5 years. Now, when I ever do see tv, I’m amazed and in awe and almost interested in the program b/c it’s such a novelty:)

    1. Hey Vishnu always nice to see you and so glad you enjoyed my rant :)..ya TV and me, meh, I couldn’t care less. Loving your newsletters by the way!! <3

  3. Iva, I can soooo relate to your list! It’s like reading my own! Glad that I’m not the only one and seriously, I don’t give a rat’s ass about it!

    1. Hey thanx so much for dropping by with your thoughts. Glad you liked the article. The politics one really is my worst. I am so out of the loop when it comes to politics and quite frankly….well…..:o

  4. HI, Iva

    Yet, Glad that you are out of bondage of those negative things. Freedom is the word to describe that feeling, right?

    Haven’t watched TV for many years, the news report all the bad things around people. They repeat the same news throughout the day, We really don’t need that to go to our ears.

    Yes, people treated us wrong. So what, they were past event, we can’t reverse them or do anything about them. The only thing we can do is to forgive. I feel so sorry for the people who still hold angry or um-forgiveness in their mind.

    Thanks for the insight.

    1. Hey Stella thanx for dropping by! Always a pleasure to see you :) and you’re right, freedom is the word!

    1. :) thanx for your comment Erika and glad you enjoyed the blog. Love you too!! xoxox

  5. Well, that’s just cool for you. It sounds rather more like a huge venting list. Whooooo, my opinion about Canadians just took a blow. And you don’t care about when you’re going to die? I wouldn’t either if I was just some super human not caring a f*~£ about the people in my life I love and my purpose on this earth, and not just about little things like my hair. Very negative list indeed, and I’m referring to your attitude. We’re here on this mother&@”(#>~ earth to deal with these things in a positive way. I searched in vain for the positive in this blog article. It seems like you’re just waiting for your tribe to pick you up like that spaced out dude Patti Smith met during her early days in New York. Bon f*^€&#£$ Voyage.

    1. Yes it’s cool for me, it’s my blog :) Thanx for your comment. Much love from sunny Guatemala where, guess what, they don’t give a fuck about stupid shit down here either. Ah, right at home :)

  6. well said Iva…I indeed like your attitude…no pretending , straight forward and what matters to you and how you feel is absolutely nothing wrong with…keep on being you…luv you..

  7. I love this list. The first one I worked in a lot on because I have a very happy enthusiastic attitude and when I enjoy something you will know it. A lot of people disappear without a word and for awhile I thought something was wrong with me but you know what F them, perhaps they need to look at evolving their attitude. It ain’t me and I don’t care what anyone else thinks. This world needs more positive and fun in it.
