I recently set myself a challenge. Instead of just snapping selfies and pictures randomly I would take a photograph everyday of something that made me happy and grateful.

In a world of so many opinions, possibilities and 'right' ways to live, decision making can feel overwhelming. We've all been faced with choices - some 'small' and others that feel much more 'important' - should we say yes to that social engagement, do we speak out for what feels 'right', do we turn down that job that doesn't feel right but would say goodbye to financial worries?

It's easy to live small - to stay safe and hide behind our thoughts of 'I can't, I won't or I don't want to'. But consider, all of these thoughts are just that. Thoughts. They're not real. Just illusionary limitations, self imposed prison cells.
