Most people probably would say they love and care for their family and friends. Myself I like to solve problems because I don’t like to see anyone suffer. Especially when it is my family or friends. It normally has felt good when I could help them out with loaning people money but then normally those feelings go away and new feelings of pain seem to set in.
ebruary wasn’t a fun month if you have money in the Stock Market or in Digital Currency. As you know the news stations have been pounding how bad the Coronavirus is and it has been tanking the Markets. For us we may not like seeing our numbers but we know we are in for the long haul and we feel the stock market will come back sometime down the road and be even stronger than it was.
Down here in Arizona I have golfed with so many people that had plans on enjoying retirement and playing tons of golf but things happened with their adult kids that they had not planned about.
January was another exciting month. Isn’t an exciting life what life is all about. We had many emotional rides this month for sure. It will be another month that will go down in the record books
Most people would say they love pets. I know growing up I had Rabbits, Fish and Dogs. As an adult I had dogs also until I was in my mid-thirties. My first dog was a Black Lab called “Flash” and he was a fun dog but I had to leave him with my folks when I moved out of the house to an apartment. My next dog was a female Golden lab called “Mariah”, she was a great dog also but tore up the yard. Our boys would love to have a dog I know but it just doesn’t fit in our current situation.
Have you ever co-signed on a loan for someone before? If so, how did it work out? I have had many friends that co-signed loans from student loans to personal loans for their kids, relatives or friends and some of those loans they ended up having to pay them off. I co-signed on a couple of loans and they both worked out but at times I lost sleep worrying about getting stuck paying for them. I tell myself I won’t put our family in that position again.
Weddings are a fun and very emotional time. They can also be a very expensive time. We get all caught up with the excitement of the event or party and can lose control of the cost if we use a credit card instead of paying cash.
What a wild ride of a year we had but it was a fun year. When I look back it is hard to believe we stuffed so much in to it. We had a lot of visitors to our house and we visited them in the summer. We lived life to the fullest and isn’t that what life is for.
How does the word “No” have anything to do with reaching your Financial Freedom Goals you may be asking me? It is a huge factor, I think. You need to be able to say “No” at times to be able to stay on your budget and disciplined to reach your goals.
Winter is here in Arizona now. We have Snow up north and our morning temps are running between 40 to 60 degrees. Burr.. LOL At least we don’t have to shovel any snow in Mesa where we live.
