If you are unhappy about something, do something about it!
I have such a passion for creating this change you know the things that are really important to you in your life you just have to make time for.
Last year I came to this awesome conclusion: the most amazing feeling I’ve ever had in my life was standing actually just being kind to someone else
Sometimes we get so incredibly busy within our own lives that we miss all the opportunities to be kind to the people around us, and I actually think that realising and acting on that is the best way to change the world.
Sometimes in life you have to take a step back and look at the other persons perspective, and even though you think they may be wrong you have got ask yourself what value they can add to the situation, and just do you best to try and look through that.
If I could wave a magic wand I would make everyone more aware of how our choices as consumers can have an effect on the world.
Sometimes you have to realise that you are doing your best.
Connecting to your why.
