On Changing What I Care About

On Changing What I Care About
I’m currently writing this blog post sitting in bed. It’s 1.20am, I have to be up for work in 6 hours and my girlfriend is currently snoring away next to me. I don’t normally write ‘spur of the moment’ type posts but I just had a few thoughts that I can’t help but share.

It may not seem like the biggest revelation and I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before but I want to change what I choose to care about.

Here me out.

A bit like the fuck budget from way back in January, I’ve actually just come to a hard realisation about things I want to care more or less about so, naturally, I thought I’d share them with the internet at what is now 1.23am.

I want to start caring more about buying my girlfriend flowers because I know she likes them and it’s not something I do often enough.

I want to stop caring about whether the cats are lying on our ‘good blankets’. We bought a washing machine for a reason.

I want to stop caring about whether my house looks immaculate all the time. Nobody lives in a show home and I need to learn that leaving a piece of fluff on the carpet for a day is perfectly cool.

I want to stop caring about FOMO. When we were on holiday last week, I was sitting by the pool with an ice cold beer thinking ‘why the hell don’t we do this more often?’. Simple answer is because we blow so much money doing pointless shit because we don’t want to miss out.

I want to start caring about what I’m eating again. No fad diets or insane workouts, just eating well where I can.

On the same note, I want to care less about people that judge me for eating a sandwich one day out of five. It’s two pieces of bread, get the fuck over it.

I want to care more about building up my savings but in manageable amounts.

I want to care less about doing unnecessary work to our house. Yes I'd like to replace the carpet in the hall but it's going to be super expensive and there's actually nothing wrong with the carpet anyway.

I want to care more about how I handle situations. So what if the dishwasher isn't empty? 
I actually didn't realise there would be so many things on this list, it really all stemmed from me wanting to buy my other half some flowers for putting up with me being a moody pain in the ass 99.9% of the time. 

It's now 1.47am and I think I'm done so, goodnight X
