We can all take inspiration from a 10-year-old girl who wrote herself a motivational note the morning of her SATs.

Little Aoife’s dad, Simon Breakell, from London, shared the note to Twitter, explaining that his daughter had left the note to herself last night explaining ‘her coping strategies for her SATs exams’.

He wrote: ‘I think we can all taken inspiration from the last line: “Be happy, like a unicorn eating doughnuts on a rainbow”.’

The inspirational note read: ‘Today you have SATs, your only test is reading. If you get up, you can have eggs on toast so you have some brain food.

‘You only have two more days of SATs and then you are done! I think you are cycling, so plaits today. Be happy, like a unicorn, eating doughnuts on a rainbow.’

Simon told HuffPost UK that his daughter has always had an imagination, and leaves herself a motivational note as a reminder of what her plans are for the following day almost every night.

He said: ‘If she knows she’s got a challenge, be that a test, a class presentation or in this case an exam, she will always remind herself that she can achieve her best.

‘I guess as any parent would do, we try to make our children believe in themselves, be positive and don’t beat yourself up if things don’t quite go to plan.’

Simon added: ‘There’s something quite profoundly innocent about wanting to be a unicorn and eat doughnuts on a rainbow.

‘I’ve even taken it into my day. I find that last line just so delightful… and in many ways, quite a mature outlook – things will be fine, don’t worry.’

We think we could all take some inspiration from Aoife. We should all start leaving ourselves motivational notes every evening for the following morning – especially if they include unicorns eating doughnuts on a rainbow.
