2018 wins and fails

December 29th, 2018 at 01:27 pm

I was hesitant to do this entry just because I expected my wins would not be that great etc but really it is just a good exercise in accountability

my wins:
owe 137 left on car this will be in just over half the real loan length

restructured my investments/ ira/ roth and made an effort to look each month as opposed to just once a year. Also focused on putting more away.

opened an extra savings/ checking account for emergency funds that make a great deal in interest

last just found a $75 gift card in a drawer that will pay my gas expense for 5-6 weeks.

my fails :
need to set up estate plans after my mom died last year I saw what a mess it can be for those not prepared.

cannot seem to find a job I can stand for more then about 6 months need to let incompetence and lazy not bother me anymore.

My best wins actually have little to do with money but instead greater understanding of and appreciation of things in my life.
I was recently quite upset about a disagreement with husband as I was driving home, I practiced a SPEECH OR REBUTTALS but as I pulled in the driveway I looked at my phone and saw a message from a friend talking about a mutual friend whose life is currently in a marriage shambles.
I saw my disagreement was not that big or important. this saved a messy argument and stress. I really have been blessed with these "signs" that show me the bigger picture.
