Life isn’t easy, we’re all equally confused, making it up as we go along but some of us just hide it better than others. And in 2015 more than ever, our lives can be so busy that it’s difficult to take a step back and analyse our place in the world, where we wanna be and what direction we’re heading, when that’s exactly what we all need to do. Not once or twice, but regularly.
Getting caught up in the rat race is worryingly easy and keeping up with the Jones’s seems to be more prevalent than ever. Relentless advertising, idolising vacuous celebrities, ridiculous working weeks of 50, 60, 70+ hours and all for what? An approving nod from a wealthy neighbour or a pat on the back from a manager who sold his youth and silently regrets it? Enough.

I live by these five, I hope they help you guys too:
