Everyone in this world seeks happiness. It’s like a hunger that drives humanity and for many it seems illusive.

Follow my blog to hear of my experiences which aims to inspire you to take control of your own happiness and achieve your dreams.

Bucket List 1 – Experiencing the Beijing Vibe

I was quite excited about the prospect of going to Beijing.  I had been to China 20 years previously in Guangzhou, which was a major culture shock for me.

6 Days in Lisbon, Portugal – Collecting Memories, Capturing Moments

I have just returned from spending 6 days in Lisbon, Portugal, and when I returned I realised that I had not bought one thing for myself in Portugal, and it didn’t concern me in the least.  What I did have was 6 days of jam-packed memories, all captured in hundreds of photographs.

Bucket List 2 – Great Wall of China

I didn’t quite plan to go to the Great Wall of China. It was like one of those things that you know you would love to do, but it seemed quite out of reach. Then, opportunity struck when I was asked to attend a conference in Beijing – to promote a conference coming to Cape Town in 2018.

About Me

So now that you are here on my web page, I am sure you want to know a little bit about me.  To find out why I have decided to create this site, have a look at I am my own happy pill.

My name is Carolyn Melnick, better known as Caro (or Crazy Caro).  My claim to fame is nothing extraordinary.  I am a mom, a wife and an employee.  My life revolves around making sure that my kids get what they need and trying not to neglect my husband too much (which is no mean achievement given the crazy job that I have and the amount of travelling I do).

I have four sons and a step daughter, ranging from 10 to 26 in age – all at different stages in life with different needs and varying degrees of independence.  This tends to keep me both entertained and busy at the same time.  My husband is not the father of my four boys, but he is an absolute gem.
I am reminded every day of how blessed I am to have him in my life.  He has embraced us and accepted the boys as if they were his own children.
