The 2015 Fuck It List: #4. Whether or Not You Think I’m “Woo-Woo”

Back in 2014, I posted my 2014 Fuck It List based on and inspired by this most excellent post:

Welcome to my Fuck It list. Fourteen things I’m going to stop giving a fuck about in 2014. Because, as important as it is to push yourself to be a healthier, more compassionate person, that can be downright impossible. Refusing to give a fuck, however, isn’t just easy — it’s kind of awesome.

So fuck it. Here are the fourteen things I’m going to stop worrying about come 2014.

– 14 Fucks I Refuse To Give In 2014

This year, I’ve made a list of 15 Things I Refuse To Give a Fuck About In 2015 (capitalized, because it’s IMPORTANT). But instead of trying to write and post a huge massive manifesto all at once, I decided to instead break my list down into bite-sized pieces.

15 Fucks I Refuse To Give In 2015

Let’s get this straight – I’m a dangerous babe who loves a lot of cool-ass shit. I feed my brain a lot of science, logic, politics, and tech (okay…some tech). I’m also wholly invested in meditation, intention-setting, essential oils, yoga, natural wellness, and self-help.

All of those things influence my life and thinking.

But when it comes to life-changers, the latter is where it’s at for me.

I used to be a little afraid that people would dismiss me as dumb, weird and/or air-headed for being into this stuff, mainly because I remembered when I used to dismiss it as hippie-dippie, new-aged weirdness. But one of my favorite things has become finding ways to teach and talk about all of these things in a fun(ny), balls-out way. When I started crafting my Sex, Sleep & Emotions essential oil class and began putting together a gathering of cool chicks for New Moon / Full Moon parties, it felt like things had come full circle. I could spend all day losing myself in the study, practice, and teaching of this stuff, and after writing, it’s the top thing I want to invest my energy into. And it’s good for me: I – and others around me – can tell when I’m vibing with this stuff, because it calms me down and mellows me out and makes me an all-out more rad person to be around. Can’t beat that.

So basically, I no longer give a fuck what anyone else thinks when I post a photo of my Full Moon bath ritual or tweet about something I read in a self-help book.

Unless you like it. In which case, welcome to this cool world I’m a part of. People are really rad and happy here, and we can teach you some neat new tricks on how to be rad and happy, too.

About Amber L.

Hi! I'm Amber. I've been telling stories with books and blogs since 2004. I also spent 10 years working as a behavior therapist, which I now put to proper use by publishing thought pieces and dissertations on '80s pop music and the defining TV shows of our current times ('The Bachelor', 'Vanderpump Rules', etc). I can also be credited with single-handedly ruining the city of Portland, OR just by moving here.

  1. I also don’t give a F about whether anyone thinks I’m woo-woo. Also I’ve decided to not care if people think I’m arrogant. I’m not. They’re wrong. Over it.
