  1. Yes, great advice! Whenever I find myself thinking “I should” or II shold have…” I always reframe it by thinking “I choose to…” instead. It helps me get clear on the choices I’m making. Thanks for the great post!

  2. I really enjoyed this post. Number 1 is a brilliant peice of advice and something my brother says he tries to put into practice regularly. Number 6 is brilliant too, something I try to remind myself often because I give myself such a hard time when something is not perfect.

    1. Glad to hear that you liked this post. I tend to gather these from friends and family and on my journeys.
      We all tend to be a bit hard on ourselves, I’m the same, just remember we are all work in progress.

  3. These are very good pieces of advice and very interesting!
    I definitely like to keep positive as much as possible and where possible remove the negativity from my life. Thank you so much for sharing! Xx
