Good Friday Morning, I sincerely hope you are in good health and even better spirits this morning.
Do you know what I am an Expert at?….Nothing, certainly not with anything to do with money or Investing, as a matter of fact, If I happen to ever offer you advice or even an opinion about what you should do with your money. Please, do us both a favor, and do the EXACT OPPPOSITE>>;).
That being said, past experience has taught me that over the course of life, you can never go wrong by investing in YOURSELF. What do I mean by that? Well, there are a thousand ways to interperate those words and a thousand more ways to actually accomplish it. Let me give you a few examples.
EDUCATION- This one is probably the most obvious and most important, to me anyway. I have tried to consider myself a life long learner. I never think that I know everything about anything and I always try to learn something new from every person and experience I come across. Sometimes, as I am human, I forget what I learned 2 minutes afterwards but that leaves me open to the possibility of learning it again the next time. Learning something new, whether you learn it the easy way or the hard way, can be one of the quickest and most rewarding ways to enrich your life.
SMILE- When you smile, you usually immediately get a return on your investment by feeling instantly better. Not only that, smiling can be done when you are alone but the returns are even greater when you smile amongst a group. Feeling good about yourself or making others feel good is a win-win for any situation and best of all, IT IS FREE!! Challenge yourself to SMILE EVERYTIME you make eye contact with someone, whether they are a life-long friend or a simply a passing stranger. It will vastly improve your day.
LOVE- Coming from someone who spent the last few years, doing just about everything BUT loving, especially myself. This can be the most challenging but offers the highest profit margin in terms of overall satisfaction in life. Take the time to explore your feelings and figure out the best qualities in you. I have learned the hard way, that you cannot share love if you do not feel that you love yourself. Love is the most powerful of all the positive emotions and can work miracles when it comes to personal HAPPINESS. We all have the capacity to love and when we do things seem to just fall into place almost effortlessly. No one has taught me more about love than my two daughters. I am so fortunate to have them and to have invested so much love into them as it has paid me back a thousand fold.
Let me thank you again for reading and allowing me to share a few thoughts with you. This blog is first and foremost, a means for me to express myself and share myself with… whomever, the more the better. If you have anything you would like to add, please let me know. I promise I will read anything anyone submits and take any and all criticisms and accolades to heart. HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY.
