My good friend Faye had a wonderful realization she shared with us yesterday:
She said staying happy could prevent life-threatening illnesses.
Shopping makes me happy. Therefore, I must shop more if I want to stay healthy.
Another good friend, Trix, had some very wise musing about her preference on spending on travels rather than an Hermes.
Without much thought, I said i would like to travel to get my Hermes.
It made me sound doubly unwise -- for wanting an Hermes and worse, for traveling just to get it.
It did however make them laugh so at least I contributed to their happiness that could possibly prevent life-threatening illness.
Meanwhile, my doppelganger of a good friend slash twin Ann (who's been recently "activated") is now
a walking and talking treasure trove of fashion knowledge she could be an editor for wiki fashion dot com!
She claims she's not in the Hermes stage yet (though she's been shamelessly lurking around Hermes forums as of late).
Hermes or not, one thing's for sure -- she sounds giddy and happy at the mere mention of Givenchy nightingale or Balenciaga city.
So who am I to make an intervention to her happiness that could probably prevent a life-threatening illness?!
I love my friends to bits! I can laugh with them for days on end.
I can talk with them about anything and everything from life & marriage to purses & shoes.
Recently, it's mostly been the latter two. And I'm not complaining one bit.
I'll do anything for happiness and to prevent a life-threatening illness!!
And to my great delight, such happiness involves Marcies and Saffianos and Alexas once in a while!
