Thursday Thoughts: the weekly Let’s Talk About Mental Health newsletter (4 November, 2021)

Hello Talkers!

A quick hello this week because (a) I’m tired and (b) it’s been a hectic week but there’s nothing specific to report on, so I’ll just get on with the newsletter!

So… greetings and salutations, and a warm welcome to another newsletter. I hope you enjoy my quick snapshot of my favourite things this week — hopefully at least one of them will make you smile/feel inspired. Have a fantastic week and a brilliant weekend!

Jeremy 😃

PS: It’s Remembrance Day here in Australia (and other Commonwealth/Allied countries); Lest we forget.


My favourite things this week:

1. ‘Control’ from @dailystoic [via Instagram]

“The chief task in life is simply this: to identify separate matters so that I can say clearly to myself which are externals not under my control, and which have to do with the choices I actually control.” Epictetus.

2. ‘Growth [part one]’ from @anxiety_wellbeing [via Instagram]

“You are not obligated to be the same person you were yesterday, last month or a year ago. You have all the rights to grow at your own pace and your own time.”

3. ‘Growth [part two]’ from @tinybuddhaofficial [via Instagram]

“I love when I realize I’m handling a situation better than my old self would have.” Dahlia Dlell
