Most of the time, people mistake ‘happiness’ as the life goal. A destination we have yet to reach. But you have heard of that ‘Instagrammable’ inspirational quote which says that happiness is, instead, the journey.
Unfortunately, quotes don’t solve any problem. And sometimes, they are so simplified that we tend to misunderstand them. Yes, I agree that happiness is the journey, but it doesn’t mean that our new goal is to now be happy all the time. That’s where people get the concept of happiness wrong: it is not constant. Your journey doesn’t have to be always bright and beautiful. There will be storms.
It’s time to delete that misconception from your neurotic pathways. Happiness is not constant. If, after reading the quote, you’ve set yourself to achieve 100% happiness in your day-to-day, you are bound to failure and disappointment. Happiness isn’t the destination, but it is not entirely the journey either.
So what is happiness? And how dare a 22-year-old like me lecture you on such ‘wisdom’?

By the title, I mean, can you be happy for 100 days in a row?? 🙂 Yes, most of you already know what I’m going to talk about in this post and what has been going on in my life recently while I was away from the blogging world (my most sincere apologies for that!!!), which is the #100happydays challenge!
The challenge is to post a picture everyday for 100 consecutive days online on any social media platform of my choice (I chose Instagram!) showing the little things that makes me happy. The main goal is to make people realise that happiness is not a destination, but a lifestyle 🙂
Thus, I decide to share my first 14 days in the challenge here:

Everyone has their own way of showing their Christmas joy 🙂
This was taken on Christmas night, with my siblings and cousin 🙂
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

I uploaded two new videos this past week. And the two of them are sort of collaboration videos.
The first one is:

With all that St Valentine’s Day stuff going around for a while since now more than a week, I’ve been reflecting a lot on Love. I believe that my faithful readers know that perfectly, since most of my previous posts revolve around it, whether in a romantic or gloomy way.
But recently, I’ve felt Her coming back.
And by Her, I mean, An Evil Nymph.

It’s Friday! Yeah! So as promised, here’s my weekly contribution to this week’s Picture it & Write:
Falling in love… who would ever want to even fall?
It seems like walking without looking at your feet, with the unconscious knowledge of the destination, and then suddenly, there’s a precipice.
And you fall.

Here’s this week’s Picture it & Write and my contribution:
Purple and blue are my favourite colours. When I look at them, they stare back at me with a face of helplessness and despair.
Does that mean that I’m a desperate girl?

A lonely but cute little sea urchin trying to get to the sun while being under water. I love how the rays of the sun make that irregular but beautiful pattern when being reflected on the surface of the shallow sea…

This week’s photo challenge from The Daily Post is Happy. And here’s my interpretation. Enjoy!
A few days earlier, I realised that I was being too self-centred. I mainly thought of only myself, buying stuff for myself, taking care of myself… All right, I know it’s good. It’s recommended, as at least we know that we are not depressed and want to end our lives, but then, it has a purpose. Yes, being self-centred for a while actually helps us to realise one main thing:

In Mauritius we are currently not in winter but in summer! Yep I always celebrate Christmas in summer ^^ But winter can also be associated with our moments of sadness and depression. When we feel bad, winter has settled in our mind. It’s all gloomy and dull…
But then we only need to light a match to melt the snow, to think positively again 🙂
This was my little cousins playing with sorts of firecraking sticks (harmless and beautiful!) for New Year.
In this wonderful period of renaissance (New Year) we should light up our inner winters and let the sun shine through!

This is the replies to a post by Free Spirits United,
There are 30 questions that is asked and I’ve decided to answer them. It sure sounds fun 😉 Feel free to do it too! in the comments below or in the comment box of the original article or on your blog, like I’m doing right now.
1. What great thing would you attempt if you knew you couldn’t fail?
The one great thing I would attempt… hmm… in fact there are so many things I would have tried if failure didn’t exist, like learning new languages or playing all musical instruments, but I guess that the one action I would not dare do is to introduce Wicca publicly as a peaceful religion here, except if I was 100% sure that I would succeed and not be burnt at the stake. 😛
About writing and getting published? Well that’s something I’ll always attempt to do never mind if I fail or not 🙂
2. What would you do if you were ten times bolder in your relationships, work, family, and spiritual life?
Speak out. Correct all the misjudgements so many people have made concerning my life. Vanquish my shyness.
3. What would you be doing if you had all the money in the world?
