Happiness Has Become My New Rich : Net Worth Update June-Aug 2017 (+0.43%)

BE THAT ONE PERSON WHO PUTS HAPPINESS FIRST AND YOU WILL FIND THE GOLD YOU TRULY SEEK.   The richest man or woman is the one who believes that happiness comes before money. In a sea of unhappiness because of job loss, minimum wage, health and all things related to money be that ONE person who puts happiness first. I knew the time would come where I’d have to write a post like this and tell everyone, we spent a large amount of money. Don’t worry I’m not crying over financial loss rather I’m jumping for joy because I understand more than ever what happiness is. I talk to many people daily while networking on social media many of which are not rich in numbers but seem to be content. They don’t have everything they’d like to have but they get by and still manage to have a laugh and create fun instead of buying it. You don’t have to sail around the world to be happy, only YOU can do that. Money doesn’t buy happiness, bla, bla, bla. I know you’ve heard that and it is the single most smartest thing I can agree on in personal finance. My […]

grocery game monthly challenge

How to find Love at the Grocery Store: The Grocery Game Challenge #5 Mar 30-Apr 5, 2015

LIVE, LAUGH, LOVE AND GROCERY SHOP   If you have a love affair with the grocery store and are single, I’m going to tell you how to find love while roaming the food aisles. Most people are looking in all the wrong places for love and doing the deed isn’t going to be your fast-track way to the alter either. There’s more to finding love than what happens in the bedroom. Sadly the first place that comes to mind for those who want to find love is by going to the bar. The bar dating scene is so old these days especially with free online dating sites like Plenty of Fish and even apps for your smart phone that it has taken on an entirely new direction. The problem with the meet at the bar mindset is that it’s always been where people go to enjoy drinks, dance and meet people. In one sense we are conditioned from the time we are in University and College that the bar scene is where people hook up because that’s where students go to unwind and have fun. It’s time to think outside of the clubs because there are more places to find […]

Free love with a post-it note no calendar required- The Saturday Weekend Review #59

LOVE DON’T COST A THING   The written form of love even on a post-it note is easy on the wallet and the heart will embrace your uniqueness. Not everyone is comfortable sharing their feelings so writing them down is a great way to express love. No, I’m not busting out into the Jennifer Lopez tune telling the world to put the money away because it’s not what love is all about, but in a way I am. I’m sure you’ve heard enough about Valentine’s Day and how much money men and women spend around the world for this one day every year. Sickening really, to see how we put a date on love and romance when every day should be filled with expressions of love. I wasn’t going to write anything about Valentine’s Day this year because, frankly I didn’t have anything to say that I hadn’t said before. Related: Budgeting for Love on Valentine’s Day I was contacted by The Brighter Life who wanted my Valentine’s Budget ideas so I fired them off in an email and they shared my thoughts on their website yesterday for the world to see. You will notice none of it entails spending […]

Happy New Year 2014 Is here to stay!

As we move into 2014 I notice how life can slip by in an instant if we aren’t paying attention and how it’s a blessing to wake up in the morning. Simplicity and life at it’s best work together when we just live a life that makes us happy as individuals. No amount of money can be put on happiness, not now, not ever. Money pays for things we need to survive, full-stop. It is what it is and to be honest, those who do that are missing out on much of life’s precious moments. One thing I like to do is not dwell on the past, rather look forward to a brighter future and believe that the path ahead will bring much joy and happiness into my life. Life is a series of photos and what you create in these photos is up to you most often but for those times you have no control the only control you have is those over your emotions. Be strong. We create paths in our lives and we also follow the path that gives us or what we believe will benefit us the most. Overall, the end result is mostly a product […]
