Self Help Section

Change is brewing, I can feel it in the air. I've been reaching out of my comfort zone a little lately, but alongside this, I have started reading 'The Things You Only See When You Slow Down' written by Haemin Sunim. I've become totally obsessed with it and it's been amazing during a time of reflection and learning new things about myself. Don't you just love finding a book that just kind of gets you, just at the right time? 

After seeing it on Twitter, the next time I went into town it was my mission to find it. After walking up and down the passages in Waterstones I searched the 'Self Help' section and finally found it - figures. And guess what was featured and perched right in front of the till? The book.

I spend that night reading the first few chapters and it was amazing how it makes you think. If you need something to read that will completely change your perspective and melt away the worries, this is a corker. Anyway, enough of the book - I'm sure I will do a whole blog post chatting about it once it's finished - so let's save it until then. If you have read it though, please tell me your thoughts in the comments!

On the weekend, we headed down to a lovely part of Cornwall I like to visit now and again. It's often the best after grabbing a Starbucks, warming yourself up with a coffee and then being welcomed to the beautiful sight as you drive around the corner, down the hill and onto the beach. It's also a great spot to escape to when the rain is pouring and you can simply sit and admire the view.

The coffee was certainly needed. The wind was cray, I can't remember the last time I'd been out in such weather. We walked a mile from Chapel Porth up to Wheal Coates and back; being battered by the wind and cold air. My poor ears! But the view was so worth it. I hope you like the snaps - just look at the beautiful sea, perf.
