How to Buy Happiness

For my first 朝礼 of 2013, I decided to talk about "buying happiness." It's not what you think it is - my speech was wholesome and the ideas I presented about buying happiness are based on articles I have read on the internet that talked about the same topic.







And there you have it - what to buy if you're going to buy happiness. Like I said in my speech, there are other ideas on where to spend your money on in the article(s) that I read. One of those is to spend your money on other people. Instead of using money to make yourself happy, you can also use it to make other people happy. Like, say, buying someone a gift out of the blue. There doesn't need to be any special occasion to give gifts.

Anyway, if you ask me why I chose this topic, I guess at first I just wanted to justify my travel expenses last year. I traveled a lot last year and when I think about how much I could have saved if I didn't go on those trips, I felt regretful and frustrated with myself. I needed something to convince myself that I did the right thing by going on those trips and I just happened to stumbled upon this particular article on the internet about happiness.

So, yeah, after reading it, I knew I did the right thing because I cannot deny that the times I have gone traveling, whether with friends or alone, have become some of the happiest moments of my life.


  1. thanks for the nice sharing Kate. as always, so young yet views everyday life so deeply :)
    enjoy your travels and experiences...

  2. hehe..and if you do the other thing...saving on your expenses instead of traveling..you might feel regretful and frustrated with yourself on earning or saving more and not taking a break..those places and experiences you had might not come again.. all the choices we make, the things we do, the time we spend, somehow works with a purpose in life..we pass through it once. enjoy exploring and touching others' lives... :)

    whoa Kate, i miss blogging. haha. good thing you put English words in there. LOL.
