Sometimes when bad things happen, it seems like nothing good can happen, life is horrible, woe is me. But other times when something good happens there is a snowball effect of wonderful. I’m a huge believer in the law of attraction and having positive thoughts. Even before “The Secret” became all the rage I believed in having good energy and thinking happy thoughts, in fact my mom always tried to instill a positive attitude in me. Which brings me to my first and biggest good news.
#1- My mom had successful surgery, she is still in the hospital, but healing well and strong, she is sitting in a chair and even walking. So happy, so relieved. I get choked up thinking about how much I love her and what a great mom she has always been.
#2- B’s Wisconsin House SOLD! We haven’t had the closing yet, but we accepted the offer. Of course it’s not as much as we would have liked, but it’s a young couple who love the house and property, so we feel good about selling it to them. It’s a HUGE relief not to have a house sitting empty in another State, money going out every month for mortgage and related expenses no more, woo hoo! Let me tell you, when we agreed on a final number I was giving everyone in my office High Five’s and that’s pretty out of character for me 😉 It’s OK to act like a dork once in a while.
#3- My portfolio is having a great day and I broke 45K in my Scottrade account! I had a nice little dividend from Invesco Mortgage Capital (IVR) today, and that pushed me to break a new record. Maybe my stretch goal of 75K is still possible this year.
The sun is shining, it’s Friday and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend wherever you live. Think good thoughts and let the good into your life!
