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.

  1. I strongly believe if anyone has a strong purpose to do things or to live nothing matters ,even if one earns crores and crores of money ,there will be no use of money or things,going beyond anything and everything takes one to the top of the world.But certainly one needs sound health to enjoy all the material things in the world.

  2. Spend Out.
    Always wear those items that make you feel Great even Sexy.
    You never know when you’ve won that persons attention at a trip to the grocery store or even the car wash.

    Always wear those things, as you’ll never know when Your Man will sweep you off your feet!

    Even after an eternity’s time, you’ll never now you had him the whole time.
