First REIT - Sold Off Again

I bought First REIT just recently.  After the share price rose by more than 10 cents in the last month or so, I decided that it was a good time to lock in some profits or more than a thousand dollars.  Just sold off the 10 lots that I owned at 89.5 cents a share.  Most of the time, First REIT trades at sub-80 cents level and I guess that is where the price is probably headed to.  If so, I will probably pick it up again when it reaches my desired buy price.

Top 5 Regrets of the Dying

Certain that many people have read this article before but guess it is always good to re-visit this article.  Tamworth-based writer and blogger Bronnie Ware shared from her experience as a palliative care nurse the various main life lessons from hours spent with the dying.  These are the top 5 regrets and it is something worth reflecting upon.

I wish:

1.  I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.  This was the most common response.

2. I hadn't worked so hard. "They missed their children's youth and their partner's companionship.  All of the men I nursed deeply regretted spending so much of their lives on the treadmill of a work existence.

3.  I'd had the courage to express my feelings

4. I had stayed in touch with my friends

5.  That I had let myself be happier.

You can see that the one regret people don't have is that they should have spent more time on their work or in office.

Long Weekend

Wishing all Christian readers a  most blessed Good Friday and Easter.  Hope you all enjoy the long weekend and find rest.  It has been a restful weekend thus far for me and I hope all readers find the same rest that I have been having. 

Just lounging around and doing nothing much.

Silver Bullion and Coin Collection

Have been slowly building up my coin collection of silver including a few bullion.  As of today, I have the Canadian Maple Leaf, American Eagle, Austrian Philharmonic, Buffalo coins and some Scottsdale Silver bars.  Many of them are mainly 1 troy oz and some of them are sealed in airtight containers.

The coins are nice to look at, but I seriously regretted using my bare hands to touch some of them as they now have a whittish tarnish on them which can't be removed.

Crossed the 250,000 Page Views

Not too long ago, I shared that this blog has crossed the 210,000 pageview mark.  I am happy to say that this site has surprisingly and beyond my wildest expectations crossed the 250,000 page view milestone earlier this week.  Thank you readers for your support, advice, comfort, jokes that you have shared with me along this journey.  I cannot thank you enough for how you all have contribute to this site and to me personally in one way or another.

Hopefully, this site will remain relevant for all. It is challenging to generate content. Very difficult considering that I do not have much free time to sit down, think and write.  Many of the posts are either written in the wee hours of the night when I would really love to be sleeping rather than writing, and also when my brain really stops functioning normally.
