Yikes. I had to update my monthly progresses a little bit. I didn’t realize I was still posting them as 2014. Haaaa… oh well. Yes $8,300. I came about a little windfall last month. When I was helping my sisters organize my late mother’s documents, I came across a letter with from a mutual fund company with my name on it ( attached with my mother’s). I called and the account was actually in my name. I cashed it all out. It’s not that it wasn’t earning bad. It’s just that I don’t like having too many investment accounts open. It wasn’t earning very much anyways. I try to keep my finances as simple as possible so I closed it. I do appreciate the money coming in but it also brought painful memories of my mother’s death.
I’m not sure if I mentioned this in the past, but one of the many reasons why I left my last full-time job was because I wasn’t spending enough time with family. I wish I spent more time with her before she died. Sometimes I mentally kick myself for working for a company for so long that didn’t bring me anywhere. My biggest mistake there is reminding me of the pros without looking at the cons. I cannot keep thinking of the past. I must move forward. I tell myself this when I think of mistakes I’ve done. For me, It’s easier to move on by shutting out people and memories that are painful. This comes of as me being a cold person, but I find life better by keeping negative memories away. It’s not as easy as it sounds. Like a NORMAL person I do get attach to memories and things.
I must keep this post short. I’m currently on vacation. Will post pics soon!
