    I remember pulling Stella up for using ‘should’ too often but the word still falls out of my mouth sometimes. Such a hard thing to get on top of, but so important
    The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

    I say 'I should' an awful lot more than is healthy. My husband sometimes pulls me up on it. I am going to try and pull myself up on it and mutter be kind.

    I've only just seen this post but it's a really nice idea, I'm definitely guilty of not forgiving myself (sometimes things pop into my head from years ago and I feel guilty about them!) and saying I should, that's also a big one for me...

    Day 7: Remember it's OK to not be OK. We all have difficult days.

    I've been working hard with this one this week. It's been a bit of a crap week for me in so many ways both physically and emotionally and I've fallen into the "why can't you work?" "Other people with x condition manage to do.... why can't you" etc
    It's really hard to remember that is it OK to have a rubbish day and to not beat yourself up about it... Another work in progress..
    Do a little of something that makes you happy every day!

    It's ok to not be ok. Feels like a mantra I should take up. Xx

    It really is. We are all conditioned into believing that we have to be a certain look/shape/success and that showing any illness or being ill makes you weak or is something to hide away and be ashamed of. It isn't...
    Do a little of something that makes you happy every day!
