Happiness is life, everything else is distraction


I’m Priya, woman, early forties, living in Holland.
I write about building a happy fulfilling authentic life  from the inside out.

For a long time, I was unhappy and unhappy being unhappy. Things started to change when I decided to follow my heart and make more authentic choices. I wasted a lot of precious time postponing my happiness and dreams as I was too preoccupied finding a life partner. If I had known that he won’t show up, I would have made other life choices and followed my dreams much earlier in life. I can’t change the  past, neither can I make up for lost time. My power to change is now. I own the presence and the future by making more authentic choices and create more happy fulfilling memories and experiences.

In the second half of my life, I want my future old self to be looking back on a happy fulfilling time. My guides to navigate through life are happiness, love, joy and fulfillment.

Unless mentioned otherwise, all illustrations, drawings, sketches, doodles, collages, paintings and photos are mine. I appreciate it if you don’t use them.
