June 2016 | Happiness Highlights

June was a month filled with highs and lows, but writing my Happiness Highlights allowed me to focus on the positive and appreciate each passing day, whatever the case may be. #1: Indulging in my favourite treat, a Chinese takeaway (char siu fried rice). #2: Family coming together to support one another following a bereavement. #3: Despite some doubts, not […]

May 2016 | Happiness Highlights

You might have been wondering whether I’d jumped into a DeLorean time machine recently, since that would provide a reasonable explanation for 1) My absence, and, 2) Writing about May in July. Unfortunately though, the actual reason is far less exciting, so in an effort to now catch up on blogging, here are my happiness highlights from the month […]

April 2016 | Happiness Highlights

March 2016 | Happiness Highlights

Since we are fast approaching the end of another month, I thought that I would find some time to share my happiness highlights from March.

On 1st January I wrote a post titled: “365 Reasons To Be Happy“, where I vowed to write down one reason to be happy at the end of every day. This idea had a really positive response from readers, so I thought that I would share my monthly happiness highlights. #1: It is the start of […]

Motivational Monday | Which Wolf Will You Feed?

Today is ‘Blue Monday’, otherwise known as the third Monday in January and, supposedly, the most depressing day of the year – but you can change that, you can always change that. I wanted to share a parable that derives from Native American tradition to help to explain… One evening, an elderly Cherokee brave told his […]

Lifestyle | 365 Reasons To Be Happy

Happy New Year! A lot of people often start a new year with hopes, dreams and prospects for the days that are yet to be written but the one wish that I have for myself and everyone else is to have a 2016 that is filled with happiness. So I thought, why not document all of the […]

Blogmas #5 | The 30-Day Generosity Challenge

Another Monday closer to Christmas, another day crossed off our calendars and another chocolate eaten in our advents! This is my favourite time of year because it’s filled with love and smiling faces, it’s the season of goodwill and there’s no better way to spread joy and happiness than generosity. Often, generous acts are part of our […]

Lifestyle | Fun Ways To Celebrate World Kindness Day
