Weekly Wondering // Week 17

Sunday again! :O
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.

How do you know when it's time to continue holding on or time to let go?
You just know, don't you?  It's not really a certain feeling or anything...or it hasn't been for me. One day you just decide internally that you can't take any more or don't want to do a certain thing anymore. It's like a switch or something.

How do you define success?
Happiness. Being truly happy. I personally could not ever care any less about careers and 'girl bosses' and self-employment and all that stressful rubbish. Success is not just money making or having flash stuff, it's getting by without having debt, not living beyond your means and being a good, helpful person in the world. It's doing whatever it is that makes you really happy.

If someone could tell you the exact day and time you are going to die, would you want them to tell you?
I think so. As bad as it is. The curiosity would probably get to me and I know they say 'curiosity killed the cat' but I would be dying anyway so... 

If I could grant you one wish what would you wish for?
No word of a lie, as 'Miss America' as it sounds; for social classes to be a thing of the past with no one living in extreme wealth while there is anyone living in poverty. Like seriously, don't you think it's completely bonkers that some of human kind's biggest problems are obesity and hunger? Insane.

What have you read online recently that inspired you?

Why do religions that advocate unity divide the human race?
Because they are so obsessed with their religion and so devout to sticking to it, trying to preach it and hanging off every word, that they don't appreciate and respect other people having opposing opinions and beliefs. Not every religious person obviously, but the 'extremists' etc just want the whole world to think exactly like they do and if you don't you are obviously an abomination that needs to be rid from the planet.

If you could live one day of your life over again, what day would you choose?
I don't know if there is one in particular that I would to be honest. I don't have kids and never had a wedding which are usually the days people choose so I couldn't say. Maybe a day at Disneyland? Not a clue!

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. I'm not sure if I would want to know when I was likely to die, on one hand you would be prepared and could say your goodbyes to your loved ones but if it's going to be a painful or horrific death I think you would be stressing as the time approached.

    1. Very true! It would take a lot of thought for sure if it was possible.


  2. Danielle, I love your view on the world, especially when it comes to success, it's such a breath of fresh air to see a blogger like you talking about happiness being successful and not pushing ourselves too far in order to chase what society deems successful, so thank you for writing that here, because it's just what I need to see right now! - Tasha

    1. You're a little star - thank you. Always lovely when anyone gets where you are coming from. Don't come across many who agree with me haha.
      Glad it could help. ;)
