Happiness is my panacea.


There are a few one very important lessons I have learnt in life for being are a very happy person:

1) We will never understand who or what we are not. For example, if we are unhappy we will find very difficult to understand and process that someone can be truly happy.

2) When you are truly happy some people might not like you because they are not what you are: A happy person.

3) When you are truly happy, you don't compare your life to others'. You live your life and celebrate the life of others because you are not envious or jealous or who they are and what they have.

4) When you are truly happy you talk about it all the time because you want to share this wonderful feeling with others to try, if possible, to affect others in a positive way.

5) Paradoxically, when you are truly happy you can be annoying to people and some might not even like because of who you are. But you are happy so that's OK.

When we are happy we get to be asked questions like the one below which - by the way - I am very happy to answer

To her question “Are you always this happy?” Me: “Yes I am because the worst thing that could ever happen to someone already happened to me, and it’s that my mother died when I was 11 so what else can happen that I won’t be able to survive?”👍
And this is the message I have from that question: when we are genuinely happy, we open up to the world. We reveal who we are because we are so content within ourselves that we see the world as a platform to spread great feelings.
We don’t become a recluse. We don’t see people or our surroundings or the world as a source of annoyance because deep inside we are ok with ourselves.
Life is too short to be spending it feeling miserable with ourselves and then projecting that feeling into the world.
So yes, I rather chose to have a spoon of cheerfulness than shitfulness because no matter what, life is goooood ❤️ so cheers to life and to the great feelings within us 👍

Memories from Toni&Guy


The beautiful thing about memories is that they reimind us how things from the past were. When those memories are good or happy, sometimes we are embraced by a sense of nostalgia - which is nice.

I worked for Toni&Guy Ireland for nearly 7 years. I started in Essensuals on South Anne Street which eventually moved to South Williams Street. Essensuals was part of Toni&Guy. Then I moved to Toni&Guy Clarendon street and from there I moved to Toni&Guy Sandymount. Both essensuals and T&G Sandymount don't exist anynmore.

Honestly, I don't miss the job or the company, however I do miss some people and I do miss some clients too.

I built up good relationships with some staff members. People who I established a great connection with, with some of them even a frienship. People who I had great conversations with; great banter and great interactions with. Yes I do miss that and same way I do miss them.

I also miss some clients. I established a good relationship with some clients. Relationships I have good memories about and I still sometimes think about - for all the good reasons.

It is amazing how people from work become part of our lives. I particularly love it because I love working with and for people.

I am someone who is always tryign to find the way  to have a good interaction with the people I spend time with, because I think it is important. That's why I keep positive so that I can be a good influence on them. I try to be humorous. Life is too short to be so serious all the time. In other words, I try to find ways to get on with the people I surrounded by.

In some ways I think it has paId off because I was once awarded a Champagne award in recognition of Having the MOST sparkling personality. And oh boy I loved my prize because, in a way, I was a prize I received for just being true to who I am and project that my every day human interactions which, of course, includes work.

I take this opportunity to send a BIG MASSIVE hello to everybody in Toni&Guy Ireland. I miss you guys. I really do. I won't mention names because you know who you are.

I send you my love full of nostalgia.
