2010 - What a decade it's been...

As a new decade is about to begin, I can't help but feeling fortunate about having made it this far. So yes I can sincerely say I feel privileged to be alive and healthy.

The last decade was full of wonderfull things, however I have also experienced painful, sad things, but I guess Ce la vi. I am a firm believer that, in life, to really value the great experiences, parodoxically, we have to experience the not too great ones. too. This is one of the many misteries of life.

Througout 2010, I put myself through college a couple of times and completed a couple of diplomas and certicates. The last and most recent one "Train the Trainer" QQI Level 6 which I completed with a disticintion. I am happy to say I am a Qualified Trainer. Training/Learning and Development is my absolute passion. I feel I was born to not only teach and train, but also to influence and motivate. So yes, fair play to me.

I changed jobs 3 times. I created Marlife - which has been a little bit neglected latrely but still a platform I intend to keep.

I turned the BIG fat 40.


I lost a couple of family members and friends. Grief is a horrible feeling and it becomes more horrible as we get older because we are more aware of how precious life is. At least, I think so. I miss those loved ones terribly and I keep wonder if I ever took them for granted now that they are gone?

I have been hit by sadness, but I am defined my love

I am always trying to find ways to become a better person to be a better everything and that includes, first and foremost, a better husband to my hubby John, my partner in crime of nearly 16 years.

We have legalised our union twice: Civil partnered in 2011 and got married in 2016

And thank God we are still together. What would we do without each other?

As you can see, 2010 as a decade has been quite eventful. Full of many things. I have met so many wondeful people along the way. People I am happy to have in my life in one way or another. People I am still in touch with. People who have become and still are my firends. I love people because I love primarly.

So yes, life is wonderful. I am ending this decade with a jolt of happiness because happiness is my panacea. Happiness is who I am and who I will always be.

If you ask me will I change anything about these 10 years?  The answer is simple, no I would not because Ce la Vi.

Happy New Year everyone. In mine and hubby's name, I wish you a very happy 2020 and a decade full of health, joy and happiness.
