Defining the Word

Life can be filled with eureka moments like victoriously figuring out what we want to be when we grow up, who we want as a life partner, and how to hack our habits.  Discovery is an empowering process and the word eureka is used to express the accomplishment of it.

 

Pursuit of Eureka is a blog about the treasure hunt for living a better life.  My intention is for you to experience eureka moments or get closer to them here.  This way you can be better equipped in your journey of meaningful living. 

The Blog Motto 
Sharing the joy of discovery on living a good life are the words this blog operates by.
A life with meaning requires understanding, and it can be subjective so it can take different forms depending on the individual.  Nonetheless, there are universal truths that can help us develop wellbeing and a life worth living, and Pursuit of Eureka is all about examining what these things are.
There is no purpose in having knowledge and not doing anything with it.  Goodness is multiplied 
when we share it with more people.  So let our minds be filled with nurturing and empowering
ideas that make our little corners of the world a better place to be in. 
About the Author

By way of introduction, my name is Yerika. I'm so happy you're here!

I grew up with Christian beliefs, so I've always had some sort of connection to a higher power.  I've come a long way in understanding that my value is inherent as a daughter of God, not to be found in the outcomes of what I do.  I'm passionate about sharing what it means to be human and have a relationship with God.

 

My inclination to understand myself and the human condition, which has roots in my upbringing in the Dominican Republic, led me to obtain a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the University of Central Florida. 

 

Every day is a learning experience for me, the world is my classroom, and I feel compelled to share practical wisdom on how to live a good life in our modern world.  I hope to bring a little light and that you'll join me on the Pursuit of Eureka.
