Hello there, today is the final of the 7 lessons, Lesson 7, to build self-acceptance: life is too short.

So far, we have covered self-awareness, self-compassion, learning from mistakes and celebrating success together with finding your tribe and taking risks. But all this is meaningless unless you understand one single but crucial point.




Life is really too short. Covid-19 has shown us all this point, very blatantly, cruelly and unmistakenly. Do not ignore the lesson.


“Stop living life like you have 1000 years to live” – Les Brown


Les Brown said it beautifully. Stop wasting time. OK, you might have a few stretch marks, or wrinkles or a couple of pounds too much. Who gives a f*ck? Are you really going to let it stop you?

Imagine you’re 100 years old and you’re sitting in your garden, looking back at your life. Do you really want to be miserable and bitter thinking about all the things you could have said, done and experienced just because of those stretch marks (or whatever, insert as appropriate)? I didn’t think so.

STOP living life like you have 1000 years to live and start living like today is your last day. Have fun, enjoy life, play full-on. Starting from today.




The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck


“The Subtle Art of Not Giving s F*ck” by Mark Mason.

This book is relevant on self-acceptance because it talks about knowing what our limitations are and then accepting them.

By learning to embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, we can find the forgiveness we seek and move on. After all, there are only so many things we can give a f**k about. Find out which ones matter.

Available on Amazon.







Happy Sunday and see you tomorrow  x
