Weekly Wondering // Week 8

Happy weekend all! How are you doing?  I'm great because after this morning's shift at work, I am now off for a week..after no days off since boxing day, yay!For the explanation of what is going on here, 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.

Can you describe your life in a six-word sentence?
Ups and downs, smiles and frowns. (Can't beat a Snoop reference eh?)

If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake?
Because usually, it doesn't feel nice to fail. Or that's what I'm guessing! I don't make mistakes because I am so perfect :) ahahahahahahaha.

What impact do you want to leave on the world?
Oh gosh, now that is a question. In a perfect world, I'd love to make a giant impact..of course. I'd want to influence the way people think about the world and help them to look after it and our animals better. I'd love to do that by starting an organization or something where I could run my own home/centre sustainably, taking in wildlife or other animals that need homes and bring in schools to visit and teach them about everything! Everything from food waste, growing your own food, alternative energy to overpopulation, extinction and everything in between. It is so important and no one knows enough about it all. I want to change that.

What is the most defining moment of your life thus far?
Hmm. I haven't had one? I have no idea!

In the haste of your daily life, what are you not seeing?
Nothing. I have no haste in my daily life and I make a conscious effort to 'stop and smell the roses' as the saying goes. (Not literally as I'm not keen on roses and have hayfever, but you know what I mean). It's why I hate cities and stuff so much - especially London. Everyone is so self-consumed and in a rush that they bash into people and walk off without saying sorry. People, in general, these days walk around with their face in their phone and miss the person who has fallen and needs a hand up. I don't want to be like that ever.

If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don't like and like so many things we don't do?
Life isn't always fair and we need to take the good with the bad to be able to live.

What lifts your spirits when life gets you down?
A funny movie, hugs with Baker, a sunny day, going for a walk with my camera when it's early and no one else is around, having a nap..? Ahaha, this is another question with many possible answers! I'd say going to Disneyland too but that's only once every few years.

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. Thank you!! That really means so much. I'm glad you enjoyed it. :D


  2. Beautiful shot of the snowdrops there Danielle, gorgeous! I loved your answer for the one about the impact you want to make on the world too, I can definitely see you starting a charity or organisation to help animals and the planet, that would suit you beautifully. I loved your answer for the one about making a conscious effort to take in the everyday, that's what I need to do more, as hard as I try I can definitely rush through the day sometimes and miss the little things! Also, have a lovely week off from work! - Tasha

    1. Thanks!
      Oh I hope one day I can. Everything takes money to start though and there isn't much of that going spare haha
      Thank you very much :D
