Weekly Wondering // Week 21

'Sup yo?! 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.

Is there ever a time when giving up makes sense?
Most probably. If whatever it is becomes dangerous or is causing way too much stress and general bother, then giving up on it is probably the best route. Nothing (or not much at least) is worth causing any kind of physical or mental harm to yourself or anyone else.

What makes you proud?
Hmm. When people go above and beyond to help the helpless, especially defenseless animals in need of a hand. For example, I'm very proud of my friends who have traveled to other countries volunteering at sanctuaries etc.

How do you find the strength to do what you know in your heart is right?
I just do it. I personally find it way harder to do the opposite and therefore it'd take a heck of a lot more strength to do what is wrong. Being a good person isn't difficult.

Where do you find peace?
Not at my house, that's for sure! haha

When have you worked hard and loved every minute of it?
Quite a few times in my life.  I used to love many of my jobs and have always worked hard at them...but it's when you burn yourself out that you end up not enjoying those jobs anymore. I loved when I worked as a photographer at a holiday park and it was super hard work, I also worked there another season in the arcade which is also much harder work than you'd think!

How short would your life have to be before you would start living differently today?
Considerably!! I would change my life now, but sadly money is at the center of almost everything and it's just not possible.

Is it better to have loved and lost or to have never loved at all?
Oooh, going all Alfred Lord Tennyson on me now? I would say I agree with his original quote, “'tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all”. Especially when it comes to the love of a dog ;) ahaha. No, really. 

Make sure to look back on this same post from 2013/14 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 the same as you Danielle, there is a mountain of things I wish I could do, but money is always a big factor. Don't forget, you're always working hard and doing amazing things yourself though, so you are making a difference! I loved your answer to the final question too, I agree, I think it's better to have known love, than never experienced it, even if that love ends or disappears. Always enjoy these! - Tasha

    1. Right?! The people who say to 'just get out there and do it' obviously either have no responsibilities/bills etc or are loaded! I can't just drop everything and go traveling..I have a house to run, jobs to go to and a family to look after.
      ;) Thanks lovely!


  2. I agree with you on most of these, especially on how to find strength in doing what's right. It's not hard at all and like you mentioned, doing the opposite would be.

    1. Thank you! Yes! Exactly. I really don't understand that one haha...
