I Am Taking a Finance Break

It has been a couple of weeks since my last post so I would think that it is time for me to write something…

I am going to get straight to the point. The reason why I had been inactive is because I haven’t been feeling very motivated as of lately.

There could be multiple reasons for this but I am not going to bore you with the details. I will not speculate as to how long I will be on a “break” as it could range from just next week to the end of the summer. In any case, I will still be posting weekly to keep you guys updated but do not expect any hard-core finance stuff until then.

For those who are interested, here is what I have been up to lately:

Is there more to life than just money?

This has been the question that I’ve been pondering lately.

Although finance is extremely important and I am committed to my Million Endeavour, there are other aspects in life that I feel like I need to work on.

For one thing, I think that I will be looking to improve my dating life at the same time I work on my finances. I haven’t had much experience in dating and it is something that I would like to look into.

Personally, I value happiness and it is something that I will strive to achieve starting today. To be honest, I am unsure whether reaching that one million will bring me the fulfillment in life that I seek. I believe that I should work on being happy right now instead of waiting for it to come in the future.

As it stands right now, I will need to take some time to evaluate the steps that I have to take to achieve that happiness.

Sometimes a break can be good

I see this break that I am taking as a way to recharge myself. I intend to come back fully rested with a new found motivation of reaching my goals.

Aside from my watching TV more and playing video games, I am also working hard on my finance app. The challenges that comes from coding the app is keeping me interested in completing the project. I would say that I am about 50% completed.

I should also note that I have no cash position in my stock portfolio at the moment. Most of my money are invested in companies that appear to have sunk deep into the red. I am currently down $3,000 overall and am left with no other option but to sit and wait for recovery.

In the mean time, I am going to rest up, keep my life in perspective and take it one step at a time. Hopefully when my life becomes clearer to me, I will be back to my usual motivated self.
