A friend posted in our group chat she's just received a surprise bonus. About $600. She wants some ideas what to do besides leaving it in the bank. Short trip in Asia? A watch? A bag? Not enough for that Chanel bag. Shoes? Blue-chip shares? No and no.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
