Rules of Happiness: Spend Out

image1Dear Wonderful Reader,

In her book “The Happiness Project”, Gretchen Rubin advises her readers to “Spend Out”. When I first read the header of the chapter, I thought she will talk about money and how we should spend more money in order to be happy.

Thankfully, her advise was much more accessible, and simpler than that. Ms. Rubin is advising against hoarding (guilty!!) or basically saving our “good” bra for only when we’re going out somewhere fancy. Or in my case marking my fancy perfume as a “special occasions ” perfume. How many of us are guilty of saving our “nice” things to events where we see fit, which may never come. Why not just enjoy them now  and put them to work and get our money and hard work’s worth. At the end of the day, they’re just things and they’re irreplaceable. Emotionally, it makes a lot of sense to suck as much happiness from what we got now rather than assigning them to a future they may never see (lol). Economically, it makes even more sense because you’re using all your resources (which may go bad or out of style if you keep hoarding).

So SPEND OUT and don’t hoard things. Wear red lipstick even if you’re only going grocery shopping. Break out the fine China for a simple event (or none at all). Wear your sexy bra even if you’re only running errands. Adore Me is encouraging women to wear their “good” bras AT ALL TIMES, check out their Instagram page for more inspiration. And I HIGHLY RECOMMEND “The Happiness Project”.

And yes, that’s a dog’s bed in the photo.

Need a FURever Home

Dear Wonderful Reader,

I need you.

I broke the law and had to do some community service. It was among the most boring time in my life. I was assigned to a park (thankfully I escaped Caltrans or the freeways) which meat I had to collect trash and do some landscaping work here and there.

One time as I was “working” (or pretending to) I saw this white bullet burst through the distance. I came closer and it was a small dog who appeared to have no owner.

Long story short, I was able to rescue that dog and pay foster to keep him at her house until I figure out something for him. I can’t keep him in my house (as much as I’d love to) because I live with my parents and my dad will throw a fit if I keep him and normally I would put my foot down but the day the dog was caught was the day a family emergency happened which we are still recovering from.

I wanna tell you the whole story and all the details but its 2 am and I have been emailing rescuing cause the lady can’t keep him forever and I can’t keep him and there is no way I am going to allow this dog back on the street again.

He appears to be a puppy chihuahua/terrier mix.

Please help me save his life, I have no idea what to do, but I have good intentions and I am doing my part and I am hoping for the goodness of God to show through this dog, which I temporarily named Heaven (even though he’s a boy) and to show through you guys.thumb_img_9699_1024thumb_img_9700_1024thumb_img_9696_1024thumb_img_9697_1024thumb_img_9698_1024
