  1. Take inspiration from others. It was watching her grandchildren swimming in the sea, so happy and carefree, that inspired Hazel to take the plunge
  2. Be aware of the irony of so many farming folk living among breathtaking scenery but never taking a moment to notice it
  3. Learn not to feel guilty about taking time to do something that makes you feel good.
