Weekly Wondering // Week 6

Sunday again?! (Well technically Tuesday the 24th as I type this).
For the explanation of what is going on please do 
click here and have a quick read.
Other than that, in short, I am answering 7 of these 365 thought provoking questions each week until I complete the year. I already did this in 2013 and am revisiting them to compare my answers.

Which is worse, failing or never trying?
Both haaa. Probably the latter would be the best answer, but failing can be pretty rubbish and offputting. My Etsy store ended up being a fail as my expensive printer broke and it made me wish I had never really bothered in the first place.

When was the last time you listened to the sound of your own breathing?
Every bloomin' morning when I walk to work! Asthmatic life!

What is something you know you do differently than most people?
Think? Most people think differently than other people. As I have mentioned in a previous week in these posts, I do have rather strange beliefs and opinions compared to many so I suppose that is what I do differently!

What does 'The American Dream' mean to you?
Nothing as it's not something I have any interest in. Does it even exist these days anyway? Especially with who is now in control...

Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton?
A joyful simpleton! Nothing in this life is more important that happiness. Whether you are surrounded by friends, a loner, absolutely loaded, live paycheck to paycheck, whatever. If you are not happy, none of those other things matter. That being said, of course, to be intelligent would be wonderful and it is important, but you can survive with just common sense and some random facts about Orcas or trains.

If you could instill one piece of advice in a newborn baby’s mind, what advice would you give?
Most probably something to do with looking after our world and its creatures. Perhaps, 'We only have one world, do everything you can to save and preserve it. Be kind to the planet and all its inhabitants especially the animals!'

What is the most desirable trait another person can possess?
Selflessness, kindness, and honesty. Especially those who are kind towards animals as they have no voice and need the extra help.

Make sure to look back on this same post from 2013 here, and see the differences in my answers! (I completed writing this before checking back to my old answers by the way). You can also see the series in whole from last time here and of course last week's Weekly Wondering here.


  1. Hey Danielle!

    Brilliant post, I really enjoyed reading it and you write so well. It's great to get to know you a little better by reading this post and it definitely inspired me to maybe do this in the future too. Keep on doing you :)

  2. My karate instructor has a list of cracking quotes about the value in failing... none of which actually help when you fail at something but the thought is there! :D

  3. I started this series too. Now on the blog are the first 28 questions. It's really fun to do.

  4. Love the answer about what advice you'd give a baby.
    And a trait I like people to possess is kindness to animals too! 💖

    1. Thank you :)
      Indeed! ''If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.''


  5. Can I be a joyful genius? haha! Learning things makes me pretty happy so that's a bit of both. It did take me a long time to realise that happiness is more important than anything else, but once you know it, everything in life just falls into a better place.

    1. Sounds good to me! I think that is what you are pretty much, or so it seems haha. Indeed!!


  6. I love your answer to the one about being a joyful in life, I completely agree (though I think you're very smart Danielle, so the simpleton part wouldn't apply to you!) I see and know so many people who are just going through life and I've been there, and get bogged down in it sometimes myself too, but I know the most important thing in life is love and happiness, and kindness and looking after eachother too, which segways nicely into the one about what you'd give newborn children - agree 100%! Loved your answers this week. - Tasha

    1. Yay! Oh bless you - I wish I was smart. I'm not stupid but I'm not well educated.
      I have to admit I'm having a pretty rubbish time lately but I am trying to focus on the good stuff because happiness is the main thing. What is the point in life without it.
      Thanks so much Tasha <3
