Every now and then I need a little push or reminder on how I want to live my life. I own a book with the following words in it and it always pulls me back to who I want to be and how I want to live my life.  Sometimes a particular line will really stand out and speak to me and sometimes I simply use it as a checklist in my daily life and try to tick as many off each day. Sometimes I might achieve one or even none and sometimes I go crazy and tick lots. It is an empowering list and has managed to pull me out of times when I have felt like I was losing hope or feeling a little lacking in confidence and drive.

I always say that actions speak louder than words and this list represents not just beautiful words but things to do, ways to live and how I want my life to be.

I hope you enjoy it!
