I have realised (and not for the first time either) if I truly want to be happy I need to a) fall in love with myself (falling in like with myself first would probably be a good start tbh), and b) stop taking things personally.
The thing is, I have this underlying feeling I’m not good enough for anyone, or anything: smart, cool, pretty, likeable, loveable – whatever, it doesn’t matter because it’s not me.

While at looking at books at a secondhand store last week my eyes came across a book called The Complete Life’s Instruction Book, which as the title suggests is a book full of little instructions on how to live your life.

So far there are 18 weeks worth of daily activities (I haven’t read them all yet), and instead of doing the challenges day by day I am going to try do them throughout October (I know that I have set personal challenges before and then nothing about it, but there is something about this one.
