I never would have thought I could rise early and be happy, or at least content, with it! But so far, so good. I’m only in week two, and I’ve dropped the ball once, but nobody is here to be perfect, right? Or am I the only one?😂⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My days really have been more positive and a bit cheerier, so I’m going to keep on with it and see where it takes me! This is a thin, scratch the surface kind of book, but I recommend checking it out!📚⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #amreading #miraclemorning #halelrod #setyourmind #startpositive #positivemind
Pick Me Up by Adam J. Hurt
All young minds should be hyper with ideas, thoughts and feelings and this book is much like a journal where you can capture those fleeting but amazing moments of your life. Unlike a linear journal, this book can be opened at any page and read over and over to reflect on the wisdom provided. This would be perfect to keep as a coffee book table in your kitchen so you and your flatmates can get a quick burst of positivity when they may feel they need it.
Amazon sell all of these best reads so feel free to add them all to your basket!
