Second sunday afternoon treat was #thetruthpixie by @mattzhaig with illustrations by @chrismouldink. a manual for anyone struggling, with a promise of better times ahead: ‘you'll laugh at bad jokes, and fall of a chair, feel the sun on your face and the wind in your hair. you see, your life is like a voice, how you use it, is really your choice. you can live life as a mumble or sing it clear. but it will often be special, you'll be glad to hear. you'll have so many moments - whole years - full of fun, that will be there just waiting once these days and done. sure, life isn't always one big smile, but things turn out fine when you wait a while.’ loved this matt! published by @canongatebooks #book #bookstagram #thetruthpixie #recommend #matthaig #chrismould

Reasons to stay alive by matt haig is one of my favourite books✨ it is comforting, honest and full of hope. we need to talk about mental health more openly✨

"that's the odd thing about depression and anxiety. it acts like an intense fear of happiness, even as you yourself consciously want that happiness more than anything. so if it catches you smiling, even fake smiling, then - well, that stuff's just not allowed and you know it, so here comes ten tons of counterbalance." matt haig, reasons to stay alive.

“wherever you are, at any moment, try and find something beautiful. a face, a line out of a poem, the clouds out of a window... beauty cleans the mind.” 🍂 #matthaig #justbreathe

I couldn’t stomach the idea of going into the city today like i’d planned. i told myself i didn’t have the strength for it so i caved and went home. i wanted to distract myself from how overwhelmed i felt, but was also acutely aware of how often i try to distract myself from my own feelings. i saw a book on my bed that i’d purchased a couple days ago. occasionally i’ll buy books but will barely get a chapter or two in, if at all. i have a huge mental block when it comes to reading. when i was very ill i didn’t have the concentration span for it so would consequently end up feeling frustrated and worse off for persisting. so i stopped trying. over the past couple years i’ve made half arsed, and therefore failed attempts, at picking up a book again. but today this book called out to me. i felt like it was my only chance at solace today. i’m glad i plucked up the courage because i’ve spent all day reading it cover to cover. it’s the first book i’ve finished in years. it’s given me a lot of things to think about. including my compulsive and unhealthy relationship with my phone/ social media/ the internet in general. in the last few days i’ve been feeling like my #100daysofhappiness project could become another source of needless and empty gratification. sometimes (but not always) i feel making it public takes away from the value it has for me. especially on the days i don’t want to admit to myself how i’m really feeling, let alone to an audience. but at the same time i have been inspired/ comforted/ supported by the content other people have shared about their mental health issues. being able to talk about living with these illnesses breaks down the barriers of stigma and creates awareness. the reason i even know about this book is because of instagram! at present i don’t know if i’ll continue with my project on a social platform, but tonight i feel compelled to share this book. it has soothed my nervous mind that resides on this nervous planet. thank you @mattzhaig for writing something i know i’ll keep coming back to when i need to remember what is important in our modern world #day37 #mentalhealthawareness #notesonanervousplanet #matthaig

Gribam ieteikt britu autora @mattzhaig grāmatu #thetruthpixie, kuru rakstnieks sarakstījis tieši bērniem, lai runātu par psihisko veselību. par skumjām, asarām, zaudējumu, vientulību, sāpēm un draugiem. lieliska grāmata, kas noderēs, neskatoties vai tev ir 7, 35 vai 65 gadi. no sirds iesakām (un ļoti cerams, ka mūsu lūgums tiks uzklausīts un grāmata tiks tulkota arī latviešu valodā). #mentalhealth #matthaig #mentalhealthforchildren #mentalhealthawareness #debesmannaiesaka

This is a page off #matthaig ‘s soon to be released book; the truth pixie.
from its preview pages, it is a book for kids that can also serve as a reminder to adults to keep from getting hysterical, because we’ve survived falls off cliffs before.

Once again, @mattzhaig has written another absolutely fantastic non-fiction book. notes on a nervous planet is a must-read for everyone in this day and age.

This novel is enough to make any film producer salivate. it features witch hunts, war, shakespeare's performances and the jazz-filled roaring twenties. rumour says it will soon be made into a movie starring benedict cumberbatch... #howtostoptime #matthaig #bookstagram #currentlyreading #books #fantasy #fiction #benedictcumberbatch

This book is absolutely beautiful. a must for any bookshelf. the truth pixie can only tell the truth but sometimes explaining the truth can help. #thetruthpixie #matthaig #chrismould #cannongatebooks
