Reality is the true world that lies behind the veil you have so intrinsically placed over your head.
1. Nobody likes a bragger. People don’t give a hoot about how much stuff you have, real friends are connected by the heart not the dollar.
2. Heaven can call a loved one home at any moment, so end every phonecall with an ‘I love you’ and never go to bed on an unresolved fight.
3. People do crappy things to eachother when they are lacking in self-acceptance. If you can go about your life smiling at others and letting their negativity bounce the fuck away you’ll find real happiness; like water off a duck’s back.
4. Your job does not define who you are. Milkman or CEO, Cleaner or Blogger, it don’t mean nothin’ if you ain’t true to yourself and your family.
5. Dogs fix a lot of problems. When I was 11 my mum bought me a dog and he healed my fractured heart ❤️ . #restinpeaceJJ
6. You’ve got to have a hobby. My dad got into gardening recently, he was a bit of a football hooligan back in his hayday, but seeing him talking to his tomatoes in the greenhouse is the calmest I’ve ever seen him. An outlet is a way to get back to your roots and check in with yourself. -one of the reasons I started Rachel’s Mansion 😘
7. You’re not made of stone, you have a heart, a mind and soul. Don’t deny yourself feelings, everybody gets hurt in the end, including yourself.
8. You can get on with that twat you can’t stand. We all know that one person whose voice makes you want to leave the country and never return, but guess what? You can find a way to build some rapport with them thought common ground. Find something you have in common, who knows, they might end up become your best pal.
9. Music and laughter are important. You need a soundtrack to your narrative, and you can’t take your narrative so seriously! You can’t go after every little thing that annoys you, you’ve got to laugh some things off!
10. You need cheat days; stop counting calories and giving yourself lashings for having one too many cookies. Cheat days are a way of loving and accepting yourself as you are. Perfection is dull, a little bit of rebelliousness is key.
