Very few things are more frustrating than the feeling like you are stagnating and not getting anywhere. It is quite aggravating and can lead you to get negative and give up.
Such is the case for me, as due to a recent investment opportunity that I took advantage of, I had to raid my savings a bit.
So, as a result I am now going over old ground in building my savings back up to where it was before.
The most aggravating is having to refund my practically decimated Mid-Term Account.
Fiscal alarms are going off with that thing not being up to where I consider it to be fully-funded.
Yet, it was not like I blew my cash on an epic weekend in Vegas or otherwise wasted it, it was an investment.
Yet, as a result of that investment, it put a dent in my savings. This kind of thing can make someone feel like they are getting nowhere.
We have setbacks all the time and while this is not really a setback, more like a sidestep, the lesson is the same.
Look back at where you have come, take stock of what you have and what you have accomplished.
I am sure that you will find, that like me, you have accomplished more than you thought that you have.
I know that I will continue my savings and my wounded Mid-Term Account will be fully funded by the October 7 Payday.
I will be back to where I was, savings-wise, by the end of the year. So, all in all things are fine and things are moving forward.
I have to just remind myself that I have done more than I give myself credit for.
Not to the point of being arrogant, but to stave off the negativity, self-doubt and depression.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
