Recently for my job, I was sent on a course about how to have a happy, positive way of thinking in life. No, it wasn’t an anger management course and no I was not sent on it because I’m a grump bag! It started by reading a parable called The Orange Frog. All the frogs in the pond were green, when one of them started to think positive, he became more orange. At first, the other frogs thought being orange and different was a bad thing. But the positivity started to rub off on all the frogs around him and soon they all became orange. They realised that although bad things may happen in their life, their outlook could change the way they were affected by it.
My favourite type of book to read are ones that are travel inspired. They have the power to make me feel like I’m somewhere else, even if I’m just at home sitting on the sofa! In 2016 I read over 30 books! When I moved to America, I even signed up for a library card! There was a huge library in my hometown in England but for some reason I never really used it once I was an adult, I always just bought paperbacks or downloaded Kindle books! Here are some of my favourite books, some have even inspired me to travel because of reading them!
