If you've been reading my blog for a while you know that I am a Twitter user. This is the third instalment of my latest favourite tweets from the past few months...a bit of humour, cycling, photography and inspiration for good measure...

I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It’s not. It is ending up with people who make you feel all alone.

10 simple joys

Recently "Chewbacca Mom" reminded the world that life is about the "simple joys". Think about it - more of  life is about the everyday moments than the sexy milestones. Though I've written a lot here about gratitude, this got me reflecting yet again on the simple joys I am thankful for. This is my list right now, though in no way complete.
1. Snuggling under a cozy duvet 2. That first sip of freshly brewed coffee in the morning 3. Hugging my partner tightly 4. Smiling to strangers and getting smiles back 5. Taking in a beautiful skyline view 6. Mastering a new skill that was unknown to me 7. Being awakened by the chirping birds outside my window each morning 8.

Camping adventures (s'mores included ;))

And that doesn’t mean finding the solution to world peace. Here are 10 little things I did in 2015 that have made my life better: Get a new pillow. At least one third of your life is spent with eyes closed. Needless to say, comfort is key. Anything you can do to improve the quality of your sleep, is time well spent. Take a probiotic supplement. Probiotic yogurts did a lot to raise awareness of the role and benefits of probiotics to digestive and intestinal health. A healthy gut makes for a happier person. Smell the roses. Literally and figuratively. This seemingly small act is hugely s…
