Wow! I can’t believe another year has passed by in only a few months. Time is passing at a blinding rate now. The end must be really close. I’m so glad I can remember how slowly time passed back in the 70’s. Once again, I feel sorry for the kids these days who will never experience that.
2017 was a really great year for me. I officially beat my unhappiness. I can now look in the rear view mirror at my depression. Yeah, it still visits once in a while but it no longer lives here.
I’ve come to terms with my loneliness as well. We are good friends now.
It was a great year financially too. I made an incredible amount of money. In just one year, my net worth went up $80,000. Big thanks to my retirement accounts, my Wealthfront account and my forethought on buying crypto-currencies while they were cheap. Thank you Bitcoin! Smack!
I also finally found my land this year. I searched high and low for so long and it just came to me like a lost dog. I can’t tell you how much relief that has been. The frustration was unbearable. Closing day is January 19th. Things could still go wrong but I think it won’t be a problem. I can’t wait to get the proverbial keys! I finally have a solid ground to look forward to and make real plans.
2017 was a lucky and wonderful year for me. 2018, from all points of view, looks to be damn good too. The economy is still on the rise so I’m crossing my fingers for another 80K next year. My early retirement is really on track.
Happy new year to you. Here’s wishing good luck to us all. Clink.
