I choose to be happy. I know that’s easier said than done, and in truth it seems to come easily to me, but I was once told that all you had to do was decide to be in a good mood and you’d break out of your bad one, because you’re in control of your emotions.. but it’s more complex than that, isn’t it? Surround yourself with positive people, people who build you up, not put you down “for a joke”. People with ambition and creativity and drive. Some of my favourite people are the big dreamers. And surround yourself with hard workers and your friends with the biggest hearts. All of these people will inspire you, even subliminally. You’ll naturally start to fulfil more of your practically-endless potential. Don’t question why you’re pursuing a passion, no matter who tells you not to. Your dreams are what should drive you. Always wanted to go to Venice? Do it. Book it as soon as you can afford it. Save up for it - make that your goal. My Dad once told me not to go after a job because he didn’t think I was capable of it.. I love the man, but he was wrong. Between us: I smashed it. Because I believed I could, not because he didn’t. Trust yourself. Trust that you can do anything if you work hard enough for it. So next time you’re not feeling your best, remember that you don’t need to just change your emotions, you can change anything and everything if you want it enough.

The Falls of Bruar are a series of waterfalls, at least in part made famous by Robert Burns, Scotland’s national post, who visited them in the late 1700s. I was surprised to find the area quiet and all to myself for the best part of an hour. It’s wonderful being somewhere beautiful and having it to yourself. I’m not sure that’s always the case but a Monday mid-afternoon might be a good time to go ️
