Nicola Morgan is one of the best friends a teenager can have. I wish I’d had her [book] when I was young and agonised over life. Now when I read her Positively Teenage guide to teenage well-being, I can only nod sagely and agree, because over time I’ve also learned a few sensible things.
But this – very yellow – book is a great guide to feeling well, feeling happier with yourself. Because you deserve it.
Today I might not [yet] have had my daily dose of laughter, even if it is great brain medicine. But I’ll work on it.
I did Nicola’s Quiz – she has many throughout the book – on ‘the flourish actions.’ I did abysmally. But it would be fairly quick and easy to improve such a score, and with Nicola’s help you at least know what to aim for.
Your body is just fine. Yes, you think your nose, or whatever, is horrible. But everyone has something like that, making them spend years agonising over some detail that will baffle the older you.
You can change your luck. It’s not as if you were born with genuinely bad luck. Learn to think and act positive. It will change you.
In every chapter there are links to websites and organisations to help you find out more, or to make contact with.
I reckon that for every little, or big, thing you worry about, Nicola’s book will have something sensible and reassuring to say. Read the book and see how you can improve your life. Even quite old ‘teenagers’ can benefit from this guide. Give the book to others, and keep a copy for your own needs.
