50 Self-Improvement Ideas.

Hi everyone! As I was looking through my albums, the photo above inspired me. It was taken 5 years ago when I went on a long trek through fields of bulls and country-roads in the name of charity. I have grown as a person since then. And no, I don't pose in this cheesy thumbs up manner anymore. The list below are just a few (!) ideas which have helped me, or would like to try. Hopefully you can take inspiration from the list too!
