Issa Update

‘Ello readers! It is I, Kaillaby with news ^_^

I’m planning to revamp my portfolio page Here’s To Achieving Your Goals–it has links to all of my former work and features all of my guest appearances on other blogs/sites/magazines.

It may take me some time but, making a post about it well definitely help me hold myself accountable for it lol.

Feel free to check it out and leave feedback, if you haven’t already!

In the meantime, here’s a link to the latest opinion piece I published. It’s a list that honors one of my favorite movie genres: comedy!

(Fun fact: I’m a huge movie buff and when I’m not writing here, I write entertainment news for a blog called The Nerd Stash. Check us out!)

Enjoy! Feel free to drop some love while you’re there, ya’ll know how I feel about affection!


Let Me Put You On

If ever you need some background music for inspiration, check out this playlist on Spotify.

It’s full of inspirational instrumentals that make you feel like you’re embarking on an adventure in a Studio Ghibli movie o.O

If you’re into that sort of thing. It definitely helps me with writing.

While you’re at it, here’s my playlist for productivity.

You can alternate between both or choose the one that better suits you.

Hey, whatever floats your boat.

Guess Who’s Back


I know it’s been a while since I’ve checked in but i’m happy to report that I’m back with brand new eyes, brand new experiences, and new found inspiration.

I realize my break was longer than anticipated but it was absolutely necessary.

You see, in taking a step back, I realized some things. Realizations that were crucial for, not just me as a human, but also as a friend, lover, mother, writer, and ultimately the orchestrator of Happiness Over Everything.

I realized I was starting to lose track of who I was and why it is that I started Happiness Over Everything in the first place.

I created this space out of empathy, with a mission to genuinely help people find their peace and happiness.

I was also struggling with this concept myself and realized that I couldn’t make other people happy if I wasn’t happy.

It took me a little while but I’ve dusted myself off, picked myself back up, and now I’m ready to resume my role as your Happiness Guru ^_^

Understand something readers: happiness is a choice and it’s something you must work for every. single. day. If you’re lucky, you’ll feel it constantly. But for some of us, it’s still a struggle considering all the fucked up shit we have to filter through everyday.

With that being said, Happiness Over Everything will be returning with updates on a routine basis. However, it will be without the bells and whistles.

No more marketing, pitching, or selling points. No contests or incentives (at least not right now anyway).

Just me, my thoughts, feelings, opinions, and resources for the many ways in which you (YES, YOU!) can be happy. No matter how long it takes or how many times we fuck up along the way.

I would also like to give a special shoutout to everyone who has continued to support me and the site through my hiatus. I’ve seen the activity and it has been oh-so-inspiring to me <3.

I appreciate you all.

Be well.

Until our next adventure…


PS. I’m currently not active on social media. For now, the best way to keep in touch with me is to follow me on here 🙂 Cheers!
