ASSI's Guest bloggers

Christmas, ASSI turns 6, financial freedom and charity.

Thursday, December 24, 2015

Has it really been 6 years since I started blogging?

Pinched myself and, yes, I am not dreaming.

Quite recently, I shared some thoughts and feelings on the matter. So, I am not going to repeat myself which is something I have become prone to doing as I age.

Yes, I used to laugh at my mom. Now, I am like that too.

In case you have missed it or might want to read that blog post again, here it is: Don't thank AK but thank yourself in future.

So, which blog post in ASSI was the most read in 2015? I guess I should not be surprised by the answer.

It was: How did AK create a 6 digits annual passive income?

We will most probably have challenges in life but, in spite of all the challenges, we can achieve financial security and, over time, a measure of financial freedom if we do the right things now and in the future.

On our journey, there will be times when we feel depressed. 

When having a particularly difficult day or going through a particularly difficult period, take a moment to meditate on how fortunate we are to have what we have. 

Remind ourselves that we are moving in the right direction and that things will be better.

Lastly, as we do better in life, remember to provide assistance to those who need help most.

Always be charitable if we can afford to be.

Always try to make the world a happier place for everyone, especially the less fortunate.

Merry Christmas from AK's planter!
