Hey you! Welcome to my life 😀
Ok so newish to blogging so bare with me. Firstly to introduce myself my name is Danielle, I am clinging onto 33 as it stands and I am separated (I’ve been told that sounds more worldly than single). I live in Dublin, with another female though she’s a bit of a bitch as you will see.
I am starting this blog mainly as a way to document new adventures I try. I was in a long term relationship and lost part of myself during its course. It wasn’t all bad as I gained some strengths too but I am attempting to find the stuff I actually miss. Hence the name Finding Ms Brightside 😊. I am a huge The Killers fan and also growing up my dad constantly sang “Always look on the brightside of life”. So that is what I am attempting to do: look on the brightside. Life is hard but small things can make things seem easier.
Last year I started making small changes and achieving stuff on my own which helped me in a major way. I was always independent growing up and though I thought I still was, it turns out I wasn’t. I relied on someone else to make me happy which never works. In 2015 I decided to do something I never even thought of, which was drive the Pacific Coast Highway. This may not seem big to most people but to me I had never thought of driving abroad. I am confident at driving but it did scare me a little. My mam tried talking me out of it but as my friend was eager to try it too, I got excited about it. Anyway I’m here a year later so obviously I survived! That trip taught me a lot. Accomplishing something you have never tried before gives you a huge high. Also doing stuff I haven’t done in years (cycling for fun and rollerblading) made me happy.
After my trip I decided to do other things I had never tried before such as ziplining, horse riding and climbing Croagh Patrick. Driving in America also opened my mind to how close everything is here in Ireland. No longer am I not going to places as its 3 hours away and I’ve only a day to go. I did Croagh Patrick without staying overnight. 6 hour return trip from Dublin wasn’t too bad and it’s now ticked off my list. This page may feature old trips and stories as I find my way about blogging. I have trips planned this year that I will fill you in on as I go. I hope to face some of my fears along the way too. No doubt I will definitely mess up so I will keep you posted on those also as you have to laugh at yourself, it’s a part of life 😄.
