Happy Valentine’s Day my friends! This year, I thought I would spare you of another romantic, mushy post and do something a bit different. Today, I want to share with you the things I love. All these items are related to my Quality of Life. I hope you enjoy these and find some jewels you can use as well! Stay Blissful, my friends – E
I am a person who always tries not to be easily influenced by position or achievement. I thank God for the fact that I can share more kindness and a good quality of life through the popularity. Not for the popularity itself. – Mario Teguh
Of course, this makes the list. Lately, I have been following Meredith Rohm on YouTube. Her sequences are deeply spiritual and gently powerful for the body and mind. Just what the doctor ordered after getting over the stomach flu.
At any time, on any day, we can spread our peacock feathers and feel good about ourselves. Whatever our fashion sense, let’s dress it up!
“I told myself that I would not come back to women’s fashion until I felt I had something new to say. I feel that fashion has become too serious and that the actual customer’s needs have not really been addressed. Fashion needs to make one happy. It is a luxury and should enhance one’s quality of life.” – Tom Ford
My go-to favorite item of clothing right now is my Sivana Hamsa poncho! Not only is it beautiful, but also very comfortable.
By saving money, we reduce our stress levels. This is a great factor in improving our Quality of Life. But be careful not to get caught up in the idea of saving money, which will cause another kind of stress, thus defeating the purpose.
This is a must-have for the online shopper. I generally get about $50 back each quarter from Ebates. I usually cash it in the form of PayPal credit, which I then have transferred to my checking account.
Ebates has an extension which will pop out and tell me that I will receive a percentage back from any purchases on the shopping site I am in.
Similar to Ebates, though I usually make my Swagbucks by completing surveys and questionnaires. However, there are some shopping sites that Swagbucks covers and Ebates doesn’t. This is why I have both apps. I also cash my Swagbucks in the form of PayPal credit, which I then have transferred to my checking account.
Raise is a website that sells unused gift cards or gift cards with balances left on them at a reduced cost. For instance, you might buy a $25.00 Shell gas card at a reduced price of say $22.00.
A fun story to tell you about Ebates and Raise: The Ebates extension, will pop out and tell me that I will receive a percentage for each dollar spent at Raise. All I have to do is activate the offer and not only do I save money but I make points toward my Ebates rewards!
Additionally, I will order something like a Lowe’s gift card from Raise, get the percentage applied to my Ebates. Then place my order at Lowe’s online for pickup (saves a lot of time walking through Lowe’s. But wait, there’s more, Ebates offers a percentage back from Lowe’s as well. So I get twice as many points back on essentially the same purchase.
If you are disciplined with your credit card and receive cash rewards for purchases, use this card to purchase your Raise gift card and cha! ching! more reward $$!!
Being of Service
Last but not least, I love being of service to my God and to all of his creation. This is extremely important in building and sustaining a good quality of life. It can be something big, like helping build a house for Habitat for Humanity. Or it could be something small, like helping someone unload their groceries. Every act of service has an impact on those involved as well as a ripple effect into the surrounding community.
Without community service, we would not have a strong quality of life. It’s important to the person who serves as well as the recipient. It’s the way in which we ourselves grow and develop. – Dorothy Height
