Hello, my name is Claire and welcome to Only One Small Thing!

Have you ever felt like you were stuck in a rut, or that life had become a little monotonous? Have you ever felt like you were going through the motions of day-to-day life, but struggling to find fulfillment and happiness?

This was definitely me! I was absolutely in a “rut” and I really wanted to do something about it, but in the past whenever I tried to “shake things up”, it was usually by doing something drastic. Seriously, overnight I would go from doing zero exercise, to suddenly hitting the gym 5 times per week; or I would suddenly decide to meal prep an entire month of meals.

As you can probably guess, I did not stick with any of these drastic changes, because it was simply too much at once! So I decided to challenge myself to start making just one small change or to try just one new thing each week, in the hope of living a happier, fuller life. Only One Small Thing is a way for me to share my experiences and hopefully provide inspiration to others feeling the same way!

To tell you a little about me; my husband and I live in Dublin, Ireland and right now we are trying to buy our first home (which is a serious challenge!). I do currently work full-time, but also love to cook, keep a nice home and socialize with my family and friends as much as I can in my spare time. I’m also a bit of a Pinterest junkie so I love scouring Pinterest for new recipe ideas, as well as awesome organization tips and home decor ideas!

Through Only One Small Thing, I share all the interesting tidbits which inspire me in my ongoing journey to find happiness and fulfillment in everyday life. This blog allows me to share all the delicious recipes, amazing cleaning and organization ideas, useful tips for better health & well-being and wonderful experiences I’ve had throughout my journey. It also allows me to connect with others looking to improve their lives by making small incremental changes.

I hope that whether it is a new recipe, a new tip or trick, or a new experience; that you will find something here that inspires you to try something new, even if it’s Only One Small Thing!
