Leave a comment

A page from my e-book about Tips for Those Contemplating Insanity

The holiday season is notorious for causing stress and pandemonium. So if you feel like you’re contemplating insanity, why not¬†take a moment to¬†appreciate the present.

Stop and savour the moment.

Find one little thing you really love about right now.

Then find another.

  • Sunshine
  • Fresh air
  • Rain
  • Laughter
  • Cotton
  • Bird calls
  • Flower petals
  • Woolly blankets
  • Sleeping cats

String them together like beads and wear them proudly.
