Live simply.

I can tell you what I’ve become after years of continually improving my way of life… I’ve become a simple person! And I am saying this in a good way. I’ve learned to live simply. I’ve learned that not everything money can buy can make us happy. There is a reason behind the saying “the best things in life are free”. I also learned that some people are there for you no matter what and those are the best people to have around you when you are on top!

I am happy that I have those kind of people in my life, those who are there for me when I am at my lowest and darkest. A handful, apart from my family, who have been with me throughout the years. I have gone back to living simply, yes, but I won’t hesitate to give one of those friends a Tube Tech CL-1B Compressor this coming Christmas even if it will put a dent to my pocket. I won’t mind spending as much for the others, in fact. They have been valuable to me and, simple life or not, I will go out of my way to show them just how much I appreciate their presence in my life.

A holiday gift list.

Send for our free catalog.

I read that and it reminded me of the coming holiday season. I know that it’s time for me to make my annual list of gifts I will be giving to specific people in the family and from work. It’s not an easy task because it is hard for me to think of what to give some people. I find myself in a bind whenever I think of what to give especially to men other than family. Plus, there’s the budget that I need to think of and stick to when shopping.

I will start my list with family members. They are the ones who are easy to think what to give to. Then, there are the uncles, aunts and cousins. Some relatives with whom I am really close to. Of course, my godchildren are priority, too. And then there are the closest friends, friends from work, and neighbors. There are so many people to whom I should give something to this coming Christmas season. Just to let them know you remember them.

I have to set aside a bigger budget every year, more so than the last one. I don’t really mind as it is my own sweet way of telling everyone on my list that I thought about them and that they are special to me.

Rent textbooks and make a child smile!

I’ve been hearing about renting college textbooks way back when. If I am not mistaken, a friend of mine mentioned it to me. I didn’t really focused on it before because, well, I am already done with college and I didn’t have any use for that information. Boy, was I wrong! Fast forward to a month or so ago, three younger cousins of mine asked my help in securing college textbooks. I was racking my brain, forcing myself to remember what my friend told me about. It’s a good thing that textbooks rental came to mind.

A lifestyle change.

I’ve been reading one status posted after another by a friend of mine in Facebook. She is in the process of changing her lifestyle. She works in a fast-paced environment and lives a pretty decadent life. It took her a while before she realized that she’s working and partying herself to death! If she wouldn’t stop the kind of life she’s living, she will just keel over and die from the abuse she’s doing to her own body and soul.

So, a lifestyle change is in order for her. She begun by getting her hair cut pixie style. It was a symbolic rite of shedding off the old lifestyle she had. Then, she did a general cleaning of her flat. She threw or gave away every item that she felt would only lead her back to her old life or would hinder the change she’s about to do. She raided her refrigerator and gave away food that she won’t eat anymore. She’s making a leap to healthy eating. She also got a outremer fragrance from smallflower.com just to inspire her to continue pushing herself to become the better version of who she is now.

Onward to a lifestyle change! I wish I can do the same.

In between projects.

I was able to talk to a high school friend of mine about a week ago. He is also an accountant like me. He is very busy with several ongoing projects at the moment. I was lucky I caught him at the right time, he was just online to check on musician friend because his wife asked him to. Anyway, I asked how he was and he told me that he’s never felt so fulfilled in his life. His work is doing great and his marriage is in its seventh year. Everything in his life at the moment is fine. He couldn’t ask for more except…

Well, he told me that he could do with mini vacations in between his projects. There are days when he goes home so darn tired that all he could do is kiss his wife goodnight and go directly to sleep. Not once did he find himself wearing the same clothes when he wakes up the next day. Good thing his wife is a very supportive one and she understands the demand of his work so she would just shake her head at him before asking him to make sure not to repeat it. She doesn’t want him to get sick when he sleeps sweaty from the commute home.

I told him that he and his wife take advantage of weekends. They should plan their mini vacations in such a way that two days are more than enough. I also told him to stop himself from bringing work to their home so that he won’t find himself working even when he’s supposed to be resting.
