Are you HAPPY? Am i HAPPY?

The number of things just outside the perimeter of my financial reach remains constant no matter how much my financial improves. With each increase in my income, a new perimeter forms and I experience same relative sense of lack. I believe that I would be happy if only my earnings were increased so much and I could then have or do few things I cant quite afford, but when my income does increase I find I am still unhappy because from my new financial position I can now see a whole new set of things that I don’t have.

The problem will be solved when I realize that happiness is a present attitude and not a future condition. I don’t need a reason to be happy. I don’t have to consult the future to know how happy I feel now.

I don't want to be Perfect and I am NOT.

Perfectionism is a slow death. If everything were to turn out like I would want it to, just like I would it to, then I would never experience anything new, my life would be an endless repetition of stale successes. When I make a mistake I experience something unexpected.

I sometimes react to making a mistake as it I have betrayed myself. My fear of making a mistake seems to be based on the hidden assumption that I am potentially perfect and that if I can just be very careful I will not fall from heaven. But a ‘mistake’ is a declaration of the way I am, a jolt to the way I intend, a reminder I am not dealing with the facts. When I have listened to my mistakes I have grown.

So, don’t try to be a perfectionist. Just be human, we all are.

Rainbow, my best MAID.

My current maid is called ‘Rainbow’, best maid anyone can ever have! Rainbow keeps my house sparkling squeaky clean, from bathroom to the kitchen, bed and pillows, curtains to walls, sofas to carpets, glass doors/windows to wooden blinds and not forgetting all the books.

Rainbow not just cleans the house but act as ‘air purifier’, especially after heavy cooking, although with kitchen hood, aroma does escape; switch on Rainbow just for 5 mins and voila, all gone! Not just that, instead of conventional burning aromatheraphy oil, few drops of aromatheraphy oil (must be alcohol free) in the water, and the whole house smells good. My favourite is Siberian Pine. Can you imagine it can blows balloon as well, so when come birthday party, to blow 100 or 200 balloons no more an issue!

Light, easy to handle and the best is no spare parts required, YES NO SPARE PARTS required at all. Just water, only water will do. The only maintenance is to clean the ‘head’ with toothbrush once a month, depending on the usage.

Its like building from a huge lego parts, everything can be dismantle and connect back using the ‘lock’ system.

Rainbow can be divided into 3 sections, namely - the brain, the body and the mouth.

The brain consists of wheels, bowl and the brain.

Two different trunks - for normal cleaning (length can be adjusted accoding to one's height) and for bed and sofa.

Variety types of mouth (and sizes) – for flooring, for dusting, for curtain, for bathroom, for glass and for ballooning.

Now cleaning the house is another theraphy for me.

Ever ready to vaccum the floor.

Ready to clean the bed and sofa.

For storage, view from the back.
