Finding Happiness

Many years of my life we wasted from trying to make everyone around me happy. The fact is, it is not possible to make everybody happy. There will always be someone that won’t be. Year after year, it’s the same. As the years go by, it becomes a burden and you become unhappy because you put everyone else first and you always think of what others will think of you.

The truth is, you have to put yourself first. You have to stop caring at what people may think of you. Only you can make YOU happy. 

Many times I didn’t do something because I was scared of what others may think or I overthink every single detail. You lose opportunities, you miss your chance on new adventures that could have possibly changed your life or brought it to a completely different direction.

It is YOUR life. You need to enjoy it while it last as we don’t know what will come our way or how long it will last. 

Do what makes you happy. If getting a new pet is what makes you happy, do it! If you enjoy giving, do it without expecting anything in return. Go on that trip! Create a new adventure! Make plans with your significant other.

The key is to do it for you, not for others. Don’t ever expect anything in return. Let go of the unnecessary and be happy!

To this day, I am still learning to put it in practice, but every day I try to keep myself on the right path of becoming the happiest me.


Hello everyone,

Have you ever had an issue with your PMS colors showing up as CMYK when doing a PDF?

As graphic designers, there is always something new to learn. Maybe this is something you know already, but in my case, I haven’t worked often with PMS colors in the past and today, as I encountered an issue with printing PMS colors, I have learned something and wanted to share the solution with you all with the hope of maybe help at least 1 person. 

At first, I was worried that it will be so much work as the document had a lot of pages with PMS colors, but it ended up being the easiest fix ever, which I was extremely happy about. 🙂

Of course, it can be a bigger issue than this, but this is probably the first thing you should look for if you are having that issue and ruled out that your file was not CMYK at the first place.

All you have to do, is go into the Ink manager and remove a check box stating All spots to process. Voilà! this is the magic solution! So simple! 🙂

When you create your PDF, make sure to go in the Output section 
and click the Ink Manager button.

I hope I was able to help someone with this little trick I found today. 🙂

‘Til next time. Enjoy!

So I did Something…

Hello everyone!

It’s been a while since I wrote about my fitness journey. A lot has been going on in my head ever since I achieved my 10 km run goal. As I mentioned in my previous post #FitnessJourney: I did it!, I needed to find another goal in order to keep myself motivated.

Well… at first, I thought, maybe I could try boxing… A few weeks went by and the thought of it didn’t motivate me anymore. It wasn’t me. So I thought, maybe I should switch gym since the one I was going was not very convenient location-wise. Again a few weeks went by… and I did nothing about it…

Laziness settled in and I ended up not going to the gym for about a month and a half. I started to give up.

When I started to see the numbers on the scale going up, I knew I had to find something quick before it was uncontrollable.

My husband mentioned to me that he was curious about the Orange Theory fitness gym and that made me think a lot. It is located very close to us and it is a guided workout with a coach who will make sure you are doing things right and will motivate you.

So here it is! I decided to try it out. The first class was free, so what did I have to lose?

Let me tell you, this was one of the best workouts I ever did. I was sore for 3 days. That night, I registered right away. This is what I needed!

So yesterday I went to a second class and today I am sore again, but it’s a good sore, not unbearable pain. I am looking forward to the next one.

If I don’t see results with this, I don’t know what will.

I will take before pictures and maybe in a few months, I can show how it’s been?

Give it a “like” or leave a comment if it’s something that is of interest to you.
