I feel the need to get a dog bark collar for Patty. She is one very noisy Pug! She would bark non-stop when she sees someone enter our gate. She would also bark non-stop if someone in the family would come home. It is her way of welcoming anybody who enters the house, yes, but sometimes it can be too much noise especially when her barking would coincide with siesta time.
Of course, I am not saying that Patty the Pug is not welcome at home anymore. She is, in fact, a very well-loved pet of ours. I just don’t want neighbors complaining about her so I am seriously considering getting one of those anti-bark collars.
Do you know how it feels when you are in your 30′s and whenever you wake up in the morning you dread going to work? You are unhappy whenever work is mentioned. You are thinking more and more about doing something else than the work you do each and every single day. My well-meaning advice to you? Follow what your heart is telling you!
My friend who is a human resources practitioner is enrolling in a massage therapy program. Her dream is to open a spa of her own and she is telling everyone that this is the time for her to start pursuing her dream. If not now, in her mid-30′s, then when will she start to do so? Of course, it’s a big risk, opening a business of her own, but it’s a risk that she’s very much willing to take now than in a few years more.
I just love how this old person I have known since I was a little kid is still the same person who has a simple joy in life… music. Good music, that is. I remember him as that person who would crank up his big old radio so he could relax on his old battered chair listening to his favorite big band music. It is still the same simple joy he has and it’s so humbling to know.
I am reminded of the old man with the simple joy while listening to my cousins talk about guitars. They are dropping hints about wanting those gifts if someone is kind enough to give it to them. They are actually letting their parents know about it.
I am just reminded of how music binds us all in some way we don’t see.
It has always been a dream of his to capture nature in its rawest form. But since he had a nine to five job to attend to, his dream took a backseat for the longest time. Now that he is already retired, he has all the time to focus on making his dream come true.
He will invest a portion of his money on live wildlife cameras and a cabin in the middle of a rainforest. He feels like a little kid about to embark on his park adventure! He can’t wait to go out there and be in the middle of God’s wonder.
He plans to stay in the wild for 3 months at a time. His adventure will begin soon.
Awkwardness is sometimes a result of seeing someone in person to whom you owe an amount. Even if you are paying that person on time, you will notice that there is still that certain something that makes you want to pretend you didn’t see him or her. Admit it, you have felt this way at one time or another, right? It is better to make a loan at a financial institution rather than to a person, be it a family or friend. Plus, there are times when you did not meet a payment deadline, words exchange between you and the person who lent the money could hurt your relationship. So if you can help it, do not borrow money from family or friends. Stick with the impersonal lenders.
Gary is such an inspiration to all who know him well. He will do everything for his love ones. He works two jobs every single day except on Sundays to make sure that he makes both ends meet and then some. And though he is busy with his two jobs, he still makes time for his very close friends. He is there for them when they need him.
So as an appreciation for the care he shows everyone around him, his love ones and close friends are getting him a complete music studio set, including an american dj – galaxian sky at musicians friend! It is the one wish that he kept on wishing for his birthday for the past couple of years now.
This coming Christmas, he will get his wish, finally.
Do I really need to remind you of the fact that we are all growing older and aging by the day? We can’t just focus on the present. We also need to focus on the future. A good friend of mine told me she would invest some of her money from her savings that she’s laboring to complete for the past several months. It will be the first investment she will buy and she is hoping her investment portfolio will thicken over time. She will add one investment every quarter from now on.
Stability. We need that in old age. Comfort, too. If we don’t have that now in terms of our finances, today is the day for us to begin building stability for comfort in the future.
