We all have days when everything seems to be going wrong. Your last shoot sucked, you lost a client or you just feel meh and think all your photos are shite. I usually curl up in the fetal position with a 500gm jar of Nutella and watch One Tree Hill. What’s your go-to feel better hack?

I also find reading these quotes (while eating Nutella) really helpful.

Here are a few of my faves. Enjoy.

“It ain’t what they call you, it’s what you answer to.” – W.C. Fields

I never loved another person the way I loved myself.” – Mae West

“I used to be self conscious about my height, but then I thought, f*** that, I’m Harry Potter.” – Daniel Radcliffe

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.” – Marianne Williamson

“Having a low opinion of yourself is not ‘modesty’. It’s self-destruction. Holding your uniqueness in high regard is not ‘egotism’. It’s a necessary precondition to happiness and success.” – Bobbe Sommer 

“Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think.” – Benjamin Disraeli

“Someone else’s opinion of you does not have to become your reality.” – Les Brown
