F*ck It List


We are all our own worse critics:

  • Should do….
  • Shouldn’t do…
  • Should’ve done…
  • Shouldn’t have done…

My “to do” list has grown to a Master To-Do List with infinite sub-lists.  The bright and shining people talk about “bucket lists” and we are in awe when we see them tick off items when the best we can do is languish on our sofas in despair.  This is what depression does to one.

I have stolen an idea from President Obama.  He recently spoke at the annual 2015 White House Correspondents’ Dinner.  This man is a comedic genus.  If you haven’t seen it, take the time to watch:

2015 White House Correspondents’ Dinner

Mr. Obama says that he has been asked if he had a bucket list.  He said, no, he had another list, implying a “f*ck it list.”  What a great idea!!!!  Life hasn’t been easy for some of us.  We have to start where we are and keep in mind what we’ve been through.  We need to not judge ourselves harshly for what we have or haven’t done, but appreciate what we have done that has moved us forward, one baby step at a time, at our own pace.  So…  here’s a starter F*ck It List for anyone who is feeling discouraged:

  • Didn’t get the garbage out?  F*ck it.
  • Didn’t mow the lawn?  F*ck it.
  • Wasn’t up to washing the dishes?  F*ck it.
  • Didn’t go to the gym?  F*ck it.
  • Ate potato chips for dinner?  F*ck it.
  • Laid awake all night wishing the stars would twinkle?  F*ck it.
  • Indulged in a cold bottle of beer?  F*ck it.
  • Stumbled over a pile of dust-bunnies?  F*ck it.
  • Didn’t get that resumé out today?  F*ck it.
  • Had a weekend movie marathon?  F*ck it.
  • Didn’t change the world?  F*ck it.

If you managed to get out of your house and smile at ONE person, you’ve done all that needs doing.  And if you didn’t manage to get out of the house, smile at yourself in the mirror.  You deserve love as much as anyone, and you can accomplish that by being as kind and gentle with yourself as you would be to someone else.

About DogDharma

Dog Dharma is written by a human who loves dogs and who believes dogs have attained enlightenment. The human behind Dog Dharma came from humble origins, has faced many trials, enjoyed many adventures, and taken a path less traveled. He claims no special privilege or expertise, and remains humble. Dog Dharma‘s author has learned a few things along the way, and has much yet to learn. He has been told by many people that he has a talent for writing, and aspires to write a book, but is a little too lazy and disorganized, so his blog will suffice for now. He opens a window into his life in the hope that some of his words may be of comfort, some may be a beacon or warning, and perhaps he will connect with like-minded souls. Everything shared comes from a place of openness and honesty, but with no claim that he possesses the Truth. People and places mentioned should be taken as pseudonyms. In many cases, details may be an amalgamation of actual events disguised to protect the “innocent.” Nothing written is to be taken as actual fact, but as the author of Dharma Dog‘s limited understanding. From the mouths of the Beatles: In the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make

    Knowing you, I’d think one tiny dust bunny would send you reeling! 🙂 You’d need body armor in my house, as the dust bunnies rival Mt. Everest! Thank you for reading and commenting!!!
