Reads For The Road: "The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving A F#CK" by Sarah Knight

by Lindsay Shapka in , ,

If the title of this book — The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F#ck — sounds vaguely familiar, that's because it is a hilarious parody of the bestselling The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up

The concept of this book is to teach you "how to stop spending time you don't have with people you don't like doing things you don't want to do" aka STOP PEOPLE PLEASING!! 

The idea is to stop caring about things that don't really matter in order to spend time doing things that you love.

Stop obsessing about having a "bikini body" and eat the ice cream if it is going to make you happy. Want to save up for a two-week vacation? Stop chipping into the office Friday lunch pool and bring your own lunch. In the long run, no one will care. 

We spend so much time worrying about how our family, friends, colleagues, and even complete strangers think about us and our actions, that sometimes we forget to actually live the life that we want.

Knight is a fantastic writer, and her observations and no holds barred attitude will have you laughing out loud.
