More Money, Less Stress

Lately, I have taken a more laid back approach to my investing.  I have been focused on funds/ETFs that give dividends and have taken the approach of just buying regular amounts each month.  There is less impetus to check the stock market, so very much less stress involved.  Some of these funds also give monthly dividends and thus, I get the benefit of having some passive income.  In short, more money and less stress.

This is just a short post to let everyone know that I am fine.  I hope to go back to regular posting soon. This blog is still marching its way slowly towards 600,000 pageviews without me doing anything.

Life is simple.  I eat 3 meals a day.  Enjoy my time at home.  Been reading.  Sleeping early and waking up early.  I feel totally blessed.  Savouring each moment of the day.

Two words in my mind:  Blessed and Passion.

I feel so blessed to be where I am, living the life that I want to.  All the comforts that I enjoy today were probably not around 100 years ago.  In fact, these comforts are not available to many people in different parts of the world today.  So I do feel supremely and amazingly blessed with everything that I have.  A bed to sleep in, food to eat, water to drink and a beautiful/peaceful country to live in.  Our generation in Singapore is perhaps so blessed that we forget to give thanks for it.

Passion.  What is my passion?  This is the thought that has been bugging me.  Can I live off my passion?
