My Personal 3 Life “Rules”
Ciao lovelies! Today I thought I’d share with you 3 of the things I try to follow in my life! These things might seem a little silly or funny or even strange but I believe in my “rules” and love them a lot!
I hope this post might help inspire you all to have some life “rules” or mottos too!
#1- You can never be overdressed. Overdressed isn’t a real thing.
I have had this life “rule” since I was in tenth grade of High School. This rule means a lot to me, because as someone with a lot of anxiety I often find myself worried that I will be ostracized for doing something wrong one way or another. But I also really like to dress up and wear outlandish things (which by the way I will try to return to fashion posts, at some point!). So I was always super anxious that I would be seen as “overdressed” or “Weird.” But my love of outlandish fashion soon overcame my fears. The only reason I haven’t kept up with my fashion is because of college, but I’m trying to get back into it recently.
#2- Live life for enjoyment, and don’t hurt others in the process.
Also known as “Epicurean-ism”, this life philosophy of mine stems from way back in high school when I was searching for the answers to all of life’s many questions. I wanted to know “why are we here” and such. And while I still don’t know why, I do know what whatever put us here (depending on your belief system), wanted us to enjoy life. Why else would we have happiness and puppies and kittens and flowers and such?
#3- Sometimes “Treat Yo Self” means more than spending money.
Treat Yourself is a motto that I often use to justify small, somewhat stupid purchases- but also a motto I use to encourage self-care. Sometimes Treat Yo Self means more than just buying something. Sometimes it means allowing yourself to spend time with friends and family, or calling a relative, or indulging in your fave hobby. Sometimes “Treat yo self” means tough love, like cleaning your room or doing your homework to give yourself some free time later on. For more about how self-care can sometimes mean tough love, check out another one of our posts HERE.
