*******I have no idea how Blue Hawaii snuck into my cerebral cortex, but it did and I welcome it’s covert attack.  They sound like their name (if that is even possible)…smooth, relaxing and comforting.  I can visit a vacation spot just by listening to their album.  “Sierra Lift” is the song I chose to present them to you because it’s ethereal beauty leaves me speechless as I sway to its bass-driven beat and out-of-this world melodic vocals.  I sincerely hope you are as moved as I am by Blue Hawaii.  I found their album on Rdio about two weeks ago and it’s been on replay in my “Collection” since.*******

Who Am I Without My Addiction?

*******Boredom…Loneliness…Emptiness.  Food…alcohol…nicotine…porn–the minute you quit, you start to try figure out who you really are and/or who you used to be before you delved into the dark caverns of your addiction.  You twiddle your thumbs, rock back and forth, jump at every noise and pace your well-worn floors hoping for a “good-enough” alternative.  Is there one?  Maybe there’s more than one.  What if you find the next best thing?  Will it turn into another addiction, or will it be that one thing that fills you so completely you have no need to turn to past habits and will replace them with newer “healthier” ones?  The yawn-inspiring boredom can be filled with exciting new-found activities.  The loneliness can be eliminated with friends and family you may have cut out to nurture your “friendly” addiction.  The empty void can be filled with things that soar your spirits to heights past and unknown such as music, laughter, art, books, nature, cars, photography and like-minded groups.  Yes, it is tough discovering who you are without your addiction(s), but aren’t you worth discovering you happiness and worth?  Yes, you are.  Cheers to you and the you you didn’t know you are.*******

Tuesday’s Tip – 13 Nov 2012 – A Dollar Earned Is…A Nickel Saved?!

What are we doing with our earned  income?!

This is a chart depicting two indicators of poverty for the world, developed countries, and developing countries. The indicators are: (1) the percentage of income earned by the poorest 20% (or quintile) in a country and (2) the percentage of people in a country living on less than $1 per day. The data for this chart come from the United Nations and the World Bank. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

It’s not your salary that makes you rich, it’s your spending habits.
Charles A. Jaffe
*******Wait a minute.  Didn’t you just get paid from your job?  Where did it all go?  Oh, bills.  Right.  Wasn’t there anything left over?  Ok.  That’s good, but why do you only have pocket lint in your hand when you dig into your pocket?  What needed items did you buy?  What wanted items did you buy?  Which one tipped the scale?  The needed purchases, or the wanted ones?  I know there are things I have bought recently I could have done without.  Were they large purchases?  No.  But, they added up over time.  If you are on a budget like I am, you have to watch every dollar.  You may have to ask yourself if you really “need” a certain item when you pick it up at the store.  I can be seen talking to myself at the store, or standing still looking up at the ceiling while thinking whether I should put something into my cart or not.  Reason wins most of the time.  I just have to minimize the times I throw caution to the wind for momentary pleasure…for the time being.  There will come a day when I can take care of all of my responsibilities and have fun at the same time.  I will relish that day when it comes…and so will you.*******
