“Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.” It’s 20 years since the Princess of Wales died, but her innocence and beauty still radiates through her legacy. I love this quote from her. Doing something for someone else without wanting or expecting something in return is a wonderful thing . She bravely talked about her eating disorder in a time before the world became obsessed with what they looked like. She had her demons like many of us. Don’t be afraid to speak up, to share your experience. The more people talk about mental health the less it becomes a dark secret to be ashamed of. So open up, share, talk, laugh, cry…be you…because ‘you’ are special. Do something for someone else and let go of the outcome. Be kind, be selfless in your journey.
