As we get older, we stop worrying about the little things. But it seems that now, as we get older, the biggest issue hanging over our heads is always the finances. Some people struggle to live the life they want, and when we start to think about what it takes to be happier, it is not just to do with ensuring we live a certain lifestyle, but it is about guaranteeing that we look at life differently. Sometimes, it is about a combination of the practical and the positive.


The Benefits of Passive Income

As we get older, and we realize that we're not earning a certain amount of money, it could benefit us to diversify our earning potential. This means that we could take a freelance job, as many people do these days, but also start to invest in currencies like crypto. These days, a cheap way to buy crypto would be to go to one of the many web providers. And it seems that now, especially when it comes to stocks and shares, it is the perfect way to top-up our earnings. If you are looking for other approaches in terms of passive income, you could start a blog or an online store. If you've got specific skills, you could create a course.


Finding Ways To Nurture Your Current Relationships

If you are struggling to get by, especially with a lack of finances, you may want to start thinking about the relationships you have. If you want to be happy, you've got to start spending time more with the people you love. It is going to help you during times of stress. And going one step further, when you start to think about the things that are really important in life, you may get the balance right despite insufficient earnings. A good way to think about it is to employ a minimalist approach. Living a minimalist lifestyle is something that many people are choosing to do these days, because of the realization that “stuff” doesn't make them happy. And you can do this in many ways, but be sure to gradually reduce personal possessions, because each little downsizing gives you the chance to take it all in, and how happier you are. You might very well find you are happier with fewer items than more.


Tackle Your Dreams

Learning to live in the current climate, and with the lack of finances can be overwhelming. It can be downright depressing. And this means that when we are stuck in an emotional rut, we have to start thinking about the things that matter. One of the most important things that anybody can learn is to avoid regrets. Partly, you can avoid making mistakes in the future, but also, learning to forgive yourself is going to give you the permission to go in the right direction.


Whether it is looking at investments or making changes to your current living situation, being positive will help infinitely. But these days, it is not just about evoking a positive mindset, there have to be some practical elements as well.

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
