in pursuit of happiness

Life is full of tiny, yet perceptible shifts, isn’t it? Waking up one morning to a bite in the air that signals autumn’s arrival, the conversation with your child when it dawns on you that they’ve grown up just a little bit more, or reading something that instantly makes you view the world slightly differently. The latter happened to me when I read Happiness: Guaranteed on page 44. After achieving vast amounts of material success but still feeling unfulfilled, tech entrepreneur Mo Gawdat came up with this simple equation: happiness is equal to or greater than your perception of the events in your life, minus your expectations of how your life should be.

say it, write it, share it.

THE REALITY OF TRYING In our September issue, Martha Hayes wrote movingly about her struggle with infertility, and her journey to considering donor conception. Her story resonated strongly with Rebecca Taylor, who wrote to share her thoughts. ‘From the very first sentence, I felt this could have been written about me,’ she wrote. ‘I, too, was told quite casually by yet another fertility doctor that my ovaries were “quiet”. It was a phrase that meant nothing to her but everything to me as a woman. This was also some time after my husband and I had been told that we had a 2% chance of IVF working for us, due to low ovarian reserve. It was the worst day of my life. Of course, like Martha, we tried anyway, in the vain hope…

spotlight on janet’s list

In 2017, family law barrister Janet Oganah used her expertise and knowledge of business, diversity and digital spaces to launch the curated website platform Janet’s List. Why? ‘I was frustrated by the fact that there were amazing independent brands by Black women and women of colour in the UK that were not getting the visibility, support and mainstream presence that I felt they deserved,’ she explains. Focusing on lifestyle, the site is divided into categories such as hair, gifts and jewellery, each with its own list. Every highly desirable brand – from Yala Jewellery to Nalu Afrika’s beautifully printed pieces – is carefully selected by Oganah. ‘I’m always looking out for new brands,’ she says. ‘I buy direct from them to test their products and process.’ Her criteria? ‘I look for…
