REFLECTIONS – 14/06/21 – 1.24

Need to hack life? Then, try this approach! When I turned 40, I felt that life had passed me by. After a lot of kicking my backside, I managed to build a respectable career, but there was so much emptiness inside me. The previous 14 years were sad, painful, turbulent and ordinary for me. I had to take a good look at myself and reevaluate my priorities and change the way I approached life. I started reading a lot in 2018 – mental health and self – help books and online blogs. I then started to collect all those excerpts from books and snippets from online blogs that I found helpful and set about putting together my own ‘well – being and mental health toolbox.’ Now, whenever I feel down or need myself to refocus, I open them up on my phone and read through them to motivate and coach myself out of the problem I am facing. As I build my toolbox, I intend to catalogue a solution for every eventuality I face.”
