My quest for happiness and my goal of being a better person



I wrote these posts hoping to encourage positivity in the lives of others. I hope my readers will find something useful in them :)

Quick Life Update

Hi all,

I can’t believe it’s been so long since I’ve logged into this blog. I kinda disappeared off the radar a while back. Anyways I hope you’ve all been well and that 2016 has been good so far. Time has gone so fast…  Continue reading “Quick Life Update”

Become the Donkey

donkey in well

Did you ever hear the story of the donkey in the well? It’s a story that crops up on social media every now and again. Basically one day, a donkey falls down the well. Continue reading “Become the Donkey”

A Little Closer Every Time

The other day I tried on my favourite dress and was amazed that it was too big. The same dress was too tight only a few weeks ago. I’ve attempted to start a healthy lifestyle many times before, but this is the first time I’ve really noticed results- I’ve dropped 2 dress sizes (down to UK size 8-10 now!). Overall I’m delighted, though I know this is only the beginning; I still want to be stronger, leaner and have greater endurance.

I’m not posting this to brag. I’m posting this because not too long ago, I wanted to give up. Continue reading “A Little Closer Every Time”

Us and Us

Yesterday, a referendum was passed in Ireland allowing same-sex marriage. Ireland has thus become the first country to approve gay marriage by popular vote.

This week, I’ve happened to meet some opponents to the referendum. Their reasoning was that gay marriage was wrong. Because being gay is wrong. Because being gay is unnatural. Continue reading “Us and Us”

8 Little Things and Upcoming Big Changes

Hi! :D

So I can’t believe we’re nine days into January all ready! How are your resolutions going? I’m still sorting out mine- I’ve stroked a few things of my resolution/goal list and am still working on others. But one group (I sorted my resolutions into groups- fitness, healthy eating, hobbies, skills, random) have made a big difference in keeping my positivity- I’ve made a special effort to do these 8 things every day and I do feel the better of it. :) Continue reading “8 Little Things and Upcoming Big Changes”

Unique Beauty

When I was younger, I used to constantly compare myself to other girls. I’d flick through magazines and ask myself: why don’t look like her? I’d conclude that I was ugly because I didn’t have eyes like Taylor Swift; I didn’t have lips like Angelina Jolie; I didn’t have hair like Jennifer Anniston, etc. Continue reading “Unique Beauty”

Ratios of Happiness

I was watching a programme the other week called “How to be Happy” on RTE which I thought was very interesting. They mentioned that 50% of our happiness is ruled by genetics but the other 50% is controllable: 10% of which is due to how attractive we think we are (not how attractive we really are) and 40% is related to our attitude and how we see things.

Daddy ruined Christmas

“Daddy ruined Christmas!” the eleven year old huffed beside me.

“Oh?” I replied, imagining a scene where her father burned the turkey or destroyed the Christmas tree in a comical fashion. Needless to say, I was beyond amazed when the girl instead said: “I asked for a pink phone and a black laptop and he got me a black phone and a pink laptop!” Continue reading “Daddy ruined Christmas”

Don’t Stress

I’m sure you know the feeling: stress. The thing I hate most about it is that so often it can be such a lonely feeling. It can often feel like you’re the only one who’s going through it… least I’ve felt like that. I’d feel like everyone around me would be so relaxed while I’m the only one freaking out about the assignment that’s due tomorrow morning. And all you can think of is being free as well… Continue reading “Don’t Stress”
