Real Life

15 things we shouldn’t give two hoots about

Number 5 - ageing – it’s far better than the alternative.

1 The weather on your holiday – what are you going to do about it?

2 That awkward comment you made to a colleague… eight years ago!

3 Not resembling Beyoncé on the dance floor – it’s meant to be fun, people…

4 Why your love interest hasn’t messaged back.

5 Ageing – it’s far better than the alternative.

6 Whether your hair is too short or not – there’s just six weeks between a good and bad haircut.

7 The calories in a birthday cake.

8 Buying the next size – it’s not about the number on the tag; it’s how it fits your body shape.

9 How much butter is on your bread.

10 Where your career is going to end up – no one ever looks back on their life and says, ‘Gosh, I wish I had worked more.’

11 Not liking (or even finishing) The Luminaries.

12 The odd junk-food binge – sometimes the only answer is deep-fried goods, cheese and chocolate, in that order.

13 The future – it’s going to happen whether you worry or not.

14 The fact you’re not a Game of Thrones fan.

15 Not being a good enough mum/partner/daughter/friend – you’re doing your best and your best is awesome; just chill.
