Things to be HAPPY about // A-Z Gratitude Challenge

Hey Guys!

It’s the last day of May and before we enter June, *half way through 2017, whoa* I just want to take a moment and recognize all the things I have to be thankful/happy for. So here’s a little alphabet challenge:

A-Z Gratitude Challenge:

A – Art; the only way I know how to express myself, whether it’s writing, drawing, painting, or creating

B – Blogging + Books; I’m happy to have found an outlet where I can share my thoughts and inspire people. For writers who also have the power of inspiring others and spreading their wisdom through books.

I graduated university with a BSc in Geosciences with a concentration in Environmental Science. That’s a pretty broad field if you ask me – Water/Waste management, Environmental Chemistry, GIS, ecology, etc etc and the obvious the Petroleum Industry. However, for me oil just wasn’t an option *due to the health hazards and safety risks*.

I’ve now come to realize that each profession probably poses a hazard/risk at some point and where’s the fun in living life based on fear? As I returned home my options for employment related to my field drastically got smaller, because of this I had no choice but to bite the bullet and apply everywhere. At this point I was in a mindset where I was ready to accept anything thrown at me. Continue reading “Motivation Mondays // Mini Life Update”

Here & Now

Damn Ali, back again with the discover challenges! Do ya’ll remember when that was a thing? All the “Damn Daniel” remarks etc. Anyways, it’s been awhile since I participated in a Daily Post Discover Challenge; I usually like these challenges because they push you to think about certain topics not just at surface level, but at depth.
