In the world of Save. Spend. Splurge.: Emotional Hygiene – a must watch from Ted Talk

I loved this TED talk shared by Sense about teaching us adults, and children the importance of emotional hygiene and mental health. Every person needs it — I can see that in Little Bun — Failure, Rejection, Loneliness — and he has to learn how to get over it, acknowledge it, and heal himself.

I can see a lot of what he is saying. I do that to myself, I can’t stop thinking about things I do wrong and I am super critical of myself, and I am trying NOT to be like that. To shake it off, let it go, let myself heal and remind myself of the fact that is it just 1% of my 100% day. I have to teach Little Bun this.

I am just waiting, WAITING for a decent sale from Banana Republic on this stunning bag.

Look. On the one hand, this article about rich people trying not to feel or look rich, really struck a chord with me. I DO THIS. I do this, and I have been trying to hide it for years. I still try and hide it, for good reason, but I am less stressed out and vigilant about not coming across as having money in any way possible (through my car, clothes, etc). I downplay what I wear, what I drive, how much I owe in debt (zero…a fact no one knows at work), and how much I have as my personal net worth (about $760K at this time of writing?)

You know I’m obsessed with this Céline Belt bag right? This one looks so interesting with its mottled body, but if I ever bought one it would be a neutral colour I think.

On the other hand, I definitely still do not think that Kylie Jenner is “self-made”, because it means you only relied on your self to get you there, when in fact she has parlayed off the name of her family to reach those heights — no shame in that, no shade here, I am just saying to not rule out the fact that it was much easier to climb to the top, when you’re already rich & famous…  Oprah is self-made. Sarah Blakely is self-made. You get the idea.

I bought the whole repertoire of Learning Endless Monsters apps for Little Bun. He is obsessed. I can name all the characters now. Pinkerton is my favourite…

    Thanks for sharing Sherry. It’s incredibly important to be self assured and confident in your financial position. You shouldn’t need external validation for your wealth – internal satisfaction is all you should need.
