10 things to remember or do to increase happiness

I know that at times things become difficult. You start to feel run down or like you're not achieving anything or have not achieved anything. The worst thing for this is Social Media, such as Facebook/Instagram. Because here, people only post the BEST parts of their life. When you scroll through Facebook and every single post is people going on expensive holidays (which they most likely worked overtime every week for the entire year to afford, but they won't ever say that) or buying a house or getting married etc. It gets very easy to feel down this way. Let me tell you, I have felt this myself on countless occasions. I'm going to list a few reasons why you should not feel undervalued and a few ways to hopefully increase your view on yourself.


Number 1 - You're still alive
It may sound simple. It may seem easy to say, yet think about it. You are still here! You have 1000s of days to get what you want in life. It may not come easy, it may not come quickly but for every …

Surviving in your late 20's - Day 1

Hello fellow Baby Boomers/Millennial/Whatever the hell we are being called these days by Brexit voters!

Recently I have been struggling slightly with a few mental health issues *Thumbs Down* But now i've decided to not let it get to me and focus on the positive *Thumbs up*

So i got the drunkest i have ever been in my entire life 2 days ago... not proud. Yet, impressed i'm still alive, as after hearing some of the story of the night back that is absolutely stunning.
I was invited to my friends little brothers 18th birthday house party (Yes a little strange but whatever).



I arrive at this house already half a bottle of gin down and a fair amount of whiskey...and about 3 cans of Guinness... Oh GOD the memories... Why did i have this much to drink you ask? Well, it's a social event where you have to interact with other human beings! As a 27 years old male this is of course the most terrifying thing in the world, i don't even like answering the phone let alone ACTUALLY speaking to people!

Once in the house all the memories came flooding back, of when i attended my own house parties at the age of 15-18 and i immediately thought...ah i am home! Not really realising at this point i am pushing 30 and other than the parents who dutifully hid in the kitchen, my friends and my wife everyone else at the party was 17/18 (To any american readers, i'm based in the UK and you can drink at 18) meaning i am now the creepy old dude who still thinks he is young and cool...

I quickly sink more Gin while talking to all the adults and using my alcoholic force field I feign confidence and make everyone laugh. Winning. This blissful peace would not last...

I soon after found myself partaking in games of Beer Pong... Using Gin instead on Beer. I played alone vs a team of 18 year olds... I won with "Old man rules" Yep, that one stung. We played again with the new age beer pong rules (Which are terrible btw) and i won again. Although i was winning i still was drinking more than anyone there... this is where everything went dark for me and i had to be filled in by my friends what atrocities i had committed...

Start off small, a lad with dyed peroxide short blond hair called me Ed Sheeran (Because i'm ginger) to which i replied "Pipe down Ellen Degenerous" Literally all of his friends cheered like i had knocked him clear out with a spinning 360 roundhouse kick to the face... think that nickname may stick...

Next, i overheard a couple of lads talking about Cannabis, and i thought "Hey, i remember back in my day knowing a thing or two about the old Devils Lettuce" so i tried to engage in conversation with them... Long story short, if you have not touched Cannabis in over 10 years... it's over, it's moved on and the words they use, weight... all of it are not the same, they will just blink and laugh at you... repeatedly.

Onto drunken advice time of the night! I sat next to a lad on the sofa and asked him what his goals were for the future... I just want to eat myself... He said he was doing construction and what not, to which i slurred the most old man sentence in history... "Stick with it mate, School may seem boring and stuff but do good, i did not do great and wish i had a second chance. I know you're not listening to me as i am just some random old dude but just try your hardest" I am cringing so hard i don't think my fingers work anymore!!!!!!!!!

Now it gets really bad. At this point my friend described me as "Having a split personality" One part was rational and friendly... the other was a hell beast spawned from the armpit hair of Hades...
I have at this point, lost my wife and two of my other friends and have attempted to call my wife... Someone answered the phone and it was a voice i did not recognise. Hellbeast came to the forefront and became, errrrrrm slightly irrational and assumed someone had kidnapped my wife and began to unleash a torrent of abuse down the phone like liam niason in 'Taken'... It was only the next day that i found out the person i was hurling abuse at, was my friends mum, the persons who's house it was.... just shoot me! I feel awful about this one.

I vaguely remember laying on someones front garden laughing at the stars like Jared Leto Joker in 'Suicide Squad' when he is laying in the centre of all those knives...

I climbed a fence, don't know where it led or if i got to the other side because i was on my own and there was no one to fill me in on these little details...

And finally on my walk home with my wife i had a bottle of gin in my hand and tried to chug it thinking it was water and i spat it everywhere looking like triple H making an entrance to the WWE ring...

So yeah... That was my eventful night where i realised i am a dinosaur and a nightmare drunk at parties!

Until next time, I am out... I've still not recovered!
