Sunday, 12 July 2015 happy


1. Push yourself to get up before the rest of the world - start with 7am, then 6am, then 5:30am.     Go to the nearest hill with a big coat and a scarf and watch the sun rise

2. Push yourself to fall asleep earlier - start with 11pm, then 10pm, then 9pm. Wake up in the morning feeling re-energised and comfortable. 

3. Get into the habit of cooking yourself a beautiful breakfast. Fry tomatoes and mushrooms in real butter and garlic, fry an egg, slice up a fresh avocado and squirt way too much lemon on it. Sit and eat it and do nothing else.

4. Stretch. Start by reaching for the sky as hard as you can, then trying to touch your toes. Roll your head. Stretch your fingers. Stretch everything.

5. Buy a 1L bottle. Start with pushing yourself to drink the whole thing in a day, then try drinking it twice.

6. Buy a beautiful diary and a beautiful black pen. Write down everything you do, including dinner dates, appointments, assignments, tea dates, what you need to do that dat. No detail is too small.

7. Strip your bed of your sheets and empty your underwear draw into the washing machine. Put a massive scoop of scented fabric softener in there and wash. Make your bed in full.

8. Organise your room. Fold all of your clothes (bag what you don't want and give it to charity), clean your mirror, your laptop, polish the house, vacuum the floor. Light a beautiful candle.

9. Have a luxurious bath with your favourite music playing. Wash your hair, scrub your body, brush your teeth. Lather your whole body in moisturiser, get familiar with the part in between your toes, your inner thighs, the back of your neck.

10. Push yourself to go for a walk. Take your headphones, go to the beach and walk. Smile at strangers walking the other way and be surprised at how many smile back.

11. Message old friends with personal jokes. Reminisce. Suggest a catch up soon, even if you don't follow through. Push yourself to follow through.

12. Think long and hard about what interests you crime? sex? dragons? magic? art? culture? Find a book about it and read it. There is a book about literally everything.

13. Become the person you could fall in love with. Stick your tongue out at babies. Compliment people. Challenge yourself to not ridicule anyone for a whole day. Then two. Then a week. Walk with a straight posture. Look people in the eye. Ask people about their stories. Talk to acquaintances so they become friends. 

14. Lie in the sunshine. Daydream about the life you would lead if failure wasn't a thing. Open your eyes. Take small steps and make it happen for you.

15. Live a life that makes you happy. Love the guy you're with because he is probably the love of your life, you'll never find anyone better than him. Love your family, never forget how much they have done and still do for you, show them you appreciate everything. Spend as much time with your best friend, show her how much she means to you.

Love yourself, love those around you and be happy.
