Here’s the thing, there are already enough things in life to stress over so why add self inflicted guilt to the list?
No matter what you do there will always be someone out there who does not agree with your decisions. Want to know something crazy? The earth will keep spinning with or without their approval.
I found myself standing in the frozen food section of Trader Joes this past weekend honest to God having an internal battle on whether or not I should buy “Peanut Butter Tracks” ice-cream. W-H-A-T? Buy the damn ice-cream Chelsea!
Why do we do that to ourselves? Why do we find it almost necessary to feel guilty about indulging in two scoops instead of one? Why do we make a mental pro/con list before buying an outfit that we have been drooling over for weeks. Oh and God forbid we take a personal day, right?!
I give you 5 things you should never (like, ever) feel guilty about:
Do you even lift bro? #EatClean #TrainDirty The gym just wasn’t happening today huh? No need to let the guilt consume you. Giving your body a break is necessary, don’t forget that. Oh and guess what? The gym will still be there tomorrow.
Listen girl, I don’t know about you but washing my hair every day is never going to happen. That’s why some genius invented hair ties, right?! Don’t feel guilty about not lathering your locks every 24 hours. Toss your hair in a bun, drink some coffee, put on some gangsta rap and handle it.
3. Make it a double
To drink or not to drink, that is the question. The answer? Whatever you feel up for. Whether you are holding a fancy cocktail or sparkling water in your hand you are fabulous and that’s all that matters. Cheers to no more guilty.
4. Relationship Goals
You should never feel guilty about going after who you want. Giving in and calling your crush or downloading Bumble is nothing to feel bad about. Wouldn’t you rather try than wonder, “what if?” Ask them out on a date. Swipe right. Send a flirty text message. Put yourself out there, you never know what could come of it.
5. Fear Of Missing Out
It’s Friday night and your friends are ready to party the work week away. Little do they know that you have been day dreaming about taking your bra off and curling up on the couch before 8PM. Instead of having an internal debate push your lipstick and fomo aside and get comfy because you have a hot date with Netflix.
What is the one thing that you are going to give up feeling guilty about?
