A Recap Of My Life In 2009

Today is December 23 and it’s our last night sleeping in our condo, we arrived here on November 11 and the time has come to depart and go back to our Canadian home. I am a big goal setter and since it’s almost 2010 and Christmas is right around the corner, and I think it’s a great time for me to reflect on the past year.

  1. Being that I am blogging from my a condo I own in Las Vegas, Nevada  is a huge accomplishment for me personally. In late April I posted about wanting to buy a place down here, it took me some months to get off my ass and come down here and do it but I did it! I am soo glad that I took the plunge, I love it here. It barely ever rains unlike Vancouver! This is something that I can enjoy with my family and friends as long as I am alive, very happy about that.
  2. Reaching my $7,000 day goal!. Even though my earnings have slid since then because of reasons beyond my control, I did it! I know that 2010 will be even better financially for me because of my ability to adapt and deversify. I haven’t added up all my income for 2009 but it should be close $850,000  net. Obviously I am very grateful for that, and I expect continued success within the new year.
  3. I have a great wife, who understands me, even though I can be a nut job sometimes. Her easy going atittitude and belief in me makes me stronger and confident in my decisions.
  4. My kids are the best thing ever. It’s weird being a father and having little people look up to you, and expect you to take care of them in every way necessary. They are cute little rug rats that have made my life 100% complete. Without my kids there would be something big missing inside of me.
  5. The drive and determination I have even surprises me. I don’t know where all my energy comes from, but without my high energy level, I definitely wouldn’t be where I am. I have a drive that keeps me pushing forward, and NEVER looking back.

Overall my life is 10 times better than I imagined it. It’s a dream come true.  I wanted to retire by 40 years old and I said that when I was in my late 20’s, still working as  a cabinet maker and only making $17.27 per hour. It’s still hard for me to sit here and be able to write that I can actually retire by 40, and I made it all happen by myself.

I’m not sure what else to say, life is good and I am thankful for every day. 2010 will be better in every way possible. I will be writing a goal post sometime soon, but I needed to post about what I was thankful for having and happening in 2009.
