. Make life YOUR Bitch .

I was laying in bed yesterday not being able to sleep, after flicking through Netflix I stumbled across a film called “Last Holiday”. I’ll just put this out there the film itself is not great, however its the concept of the film I liked.

Long story short, this lady finds out she probably has about three weeks to live so she packed up and went to a hotel which she always dreamed of going to and said exactly what she thought, and basically lived life to her fullest with no regrets.

I mean, I’m not stupid enough to think that with the £50.00 that is in my bank account will allow me to travel the world, however it definitely made me think about the way I should look at life.

I spend so much time worrying about saying the ‘right thing’, giving a shit on if I’m wearing too much make up or if people won’t like it. At the end of the day, its only me that is going to get me through every single day. Being selfish is the one thing I forget to do more often than not, and I think its important to make yourself priority.

I guess this film has given me this breath of fresh air to think about doing things for myself and live my life the way I want to. Learning what to figure out what I should give a fuck about, and what I shouldn’t. Live every second, live every moment because why would you want to go through life with regrets?

Make life YOUR bitch.

    Ah ha ha I may have watched that film too, it’s a bit woeful but excellent sentiment. It’s nice to get the reminder that you are in charge of your life, so you’d best get on and make the most of it.

    Honestly Aine

      Haha yeah definitely! It’s not the greatest film, but I did find myself thinking that I should make the most of what I have, and live everyday to the fullest.

    This is my main goal this year: to not care what others think and do what I want for myself. I’ve spent so long trying to please others yet you’re the most important person in your own life!

      Ah yaaaas girl, my thoughts exactly. Try not to think too much about what people think about you, people should love you for you and if they don’t they can get stuffed frankly! Be selfish, this is YOUR life, you are allowed to be!

      The movie itself isn’t amazing, but the concept is sweet and you find yourself sitting there going “I SHOULD DO MORE FOR MYSELF” and less for anyone else! Being is selfish is okay, and more people need to remember that.

    I love this post and the message behind it! 🙌🏼 I completely agree with you, you never know how long youve got left so make the most of every moment! £50 may not allow you to travel the world but you can get so many great experiences out there for free or very little!

      Thanks angel face! Exactly, you’ve got to make the most of every moment because have you really lived if you haven’t LIVED? Experiences can be made with no money at all, as long as you think outside the box!

      Be warned, the film isn’t amazing! Its the concept which made me sit back and really think about what I’m doing for myself and my life. Its good to watch if you enjoy shit films like me ha!

    I love this post!! I’m in the same boat, I forget to be selfish and this post reminds me that it’s okay to be selfish once in a while. The title did make me giggle though!! X

      Yeah exactly, we sometimes need to forget about what everyone else is saying or thinking! You should be you for you, and nobody else and I’m 100% behind that thought.

      I thought the title would catch some peoples attention oops!

      Honestly the film seriously ain’t the best, but the concept really makes you think about living your life to your fullest. Caring about what people think of you is no way to live, people should love you for you and if they don’t, they aren’t worth your time. Be you!

  7. January 3, 2017 / 3:23 pm

    I love this post! It’s so important to live in the now and no we may not have the money or the means to travel the world but we can definitely do more to make the most of everyday 🙂

      Yes, I completely agree! Live for you, make the most of everyday. Live a life worth LIVING.
      As long as you think out of the box there is so many things to do that you don’t need money for. Going for a walk to that forest you’ve always said you’d walk through, but never got round to. LIVE IT.

    I haven’t seen that film but I love the message you took from it! Taking time out to be good to yourself is so important and can really make a difference in how you feel.

      Haha, the film itself really isn’t the best, I’ll warn you now (I think its on Netflix). however the concept is sweet. It does make you realise that you need to take time out for yourself, because at the end of the day you are living your life for you.. you can be selfish!

      Yay, I’m glad you like it babe! It gives off a great message, the film isn’t great unless you love shit films (which fyi, I do haha), but the message really made me think! Its one of my goals as well, do things for me and not for anyone else.

      I thought it would grab some peoples attention! But the title says what I mean, why live your life for anyone else? Do it for yourself!

    I have never seen this film, but want to now. Just remember, £50 may not be enough to travel the world but there are so many things out there for free to see and do 🙂

    A very important message

      You’re welcome, girl! Oh god I know, its just in the film she goes to the most expensive 5* hotel, but yes as you say the smallest amount of money can allow you to create great memories!

      Omg someone else who’s seen it!?! I loved the film, but I have a thing for watching crappy films haha, but I absolutely loved the concept of it. I’m glad you’ve said that and a few other people saying that its what they need to hear. Sometimes people forget to be selfish and sometimes you need to.

    Oh I never heard of this film but it sounds like it really does have some amazing messages it may be one which I end up watching in the future and end up living by the goals. It may not seem like £50 is a lot by I am sure you could do so much exploring with this money.

      I literally found it on netflix the other day! Its not an amazing film, but the concept is really good. Just remember to live the life you live for yourself and nobody else.

      Yeah exactly, you could make so many amazing memories with that money!

  17. January 15, 2017 / 7:05 am

    YES. This.

    I think I’ve seen the film, but it could have been a while ago. I might have to watch it again to refresh my memory! I worried about doing and saying the right thing when I left high school and went to university with my friends. Part of me was terrified of losing my friends and part of me didn’t know how to deal with the ‘peer pressure’ culture I had been thrown into. I ended up moving to a city where I knew no one (or close to) and it completely changed me. Probably made me a little ‘harder’ because I had to look after myself, but I definitely made life my bitch 😉 Good thing I did too, because I am having to redefine what my life is going to be like now!

    Such a positive and lovely post! Definitely what I needed to read on a Sunday afternoon 🙂
