20/04/2016



I guess I'm lucky to have such open minded, supportive family and friends otherwise I think it would have taken me a lot longer to realise some of these things. I don't promise it'll give you some next level outlook on the world and change the way you perceive things forever but I guarantee 3 things: It will give you the permission slip you're longing for, it will make you feel ready to kick ass at life and it will remind you of things that are already buried deep inside your glorious mind.  *Disclaimer: Number 1 may make you more skint than usual :-) soz not soz
