It’s been a very interesting exercise doing this over the month of October. There has been a lot of quite negative stuff going on at the moment and I’ve not been feeling top drawer at all. But at least I can look back and see 93 good things. That is a lot of good things. Sure some of them are only little things but they still count and quite often they can be the most important things to keep you going. So, what are the little things for the end of October?

So that is that. October wasn’t as bad as I think it was. After all, every day had at least 3 good things. There were some days I could’ve listed more things to be honest!


I really do recommend doing this as an exercise. It makes you feel much better. Even if you have to put the tiniest thing down it still counts.
