Top Tips for a Happy Life #23

Hi all! For this week's Top Tip I thought I would spread some body positivity! It's getting to that time of year where bits of bods are getting brought out that are usually kept safe under tights and jumpers, and we could all use a bit of optimism. This lovely quote is from 'I Like Giants' by Kimya Dawson.

I originally heard the song quite a long time ago, I used to be really into the VlogBrothers on Youtube and I believe Kimya performed with them a few years back at some sort of youtube convention (pre Vid-Con as far as I know). I don't know a lot more about her other songs but to me 'I Like Giants' has always been an amazing, pro-woman, pro-body, pro-love song that it just makes me happy to think about the lyrics and how lovely they are (you can read them {here}).

The sentiment of the song is just to take yourself outside your head and look at nature around you until you feel, "grounded, humble, one with everything". A great song for your mood. And a strawberry because, well, they make me happy too. I recently had friends around for a birthday party and we sat and ate nearly a whole punnet of home-grown strawberries between us.

You can listen to the song {here} on Youtube, which I do recommend.

I hope you're having a lovely summer so far.
Until next time,
