Scarlett Guides To Life…

Life has a funny way of throwing curve balls at us that, within a split second, can turn our whole lives upside down.

Life can be shitty like that.

It’s a sad fact of life that, at one point or another, we’re all going to go through hard times. Times that test you to see how much you can take before you break. Now, although that sounds really sad, it doesn’t have to be. Because the bad times don’t last forever – and they help you to appreciate the good times even more. Because, after all, if we were always happy, would we even know that we were happy?

So, if for whatever reason you’re going through some rough times right now, just remember that there are so many good people in the world.

Sheep saving faith in humanity

That you will find friends in places you never imagined, all through your life.

And even though it doesn’t feel like it now, at some point you will feel as wonderful as this baby elephant playing with tyres.

can't cope

 …and as fabulous as this sassy llama, who doesn’t take shit from anyone.

urgh, peasants

And, for what it’s worth it’s never too late, or too early, to be whoever you want to be. There are no rules to this life, you can just make the best of it, or make the worst of it.

I hope you make the best of it.

I hope you do things that make you proud. See things that amaze you, and meet people who inspire you.

I hope you laugh, a lot. And, somewhere along the way, I hope you stop and realise that you’re happy.

Really, really, really, fucking happy.

Because you’re going to be just fine.


Until next time… x
