Taxes, Financial Organization, Challenges

It seems like apologizing to my readers for not consistently writing is a thing I've been doing a lot lately. Life is what it is and I'm living life.

Let me catch you up to date.

Having financial pressures and many of them is certainly not the ideal way to trade. I'm not exception there. As I've written in other sporadic posts, I've been dealing with a tax situation that has been quite scary and harried to me. It's finally come to an end as of this past Friday late afternoon. After nearly 2 yrs, it's now finally under control and the tax man is satisfied with my stuff and said they would no longer keep after me for this and that.

There is still some action items for me to do in the future, but that's the future and the pressure I've been feeling for the past near 2 yrs is over!!! Praise God! That has been a huge stressor. I recognize that nothing is a stressor unless I deem it so. And, in my mind, I deemed it so. Didn't know how NOT to not attach that meaning to it.

Everything is caught up and up to par now.

My body has been tired after this, as my mind, spirit, and heart. It's been a big drain over all this time, back and forth, waiting, this and that. The gentleman that helped me at the end was incredibly nice. Praise God!!!

Paperwork is not something that I enjoy in any realm, but it's a necessary thing in order to be successful, especially financial organization. I've been working on that, too, and finally got back down to the paperwork portion yesterday afternoon and evening. That's now completed.

There are things I do need to address today and this coming week, and though they are big things, too, at least the tax thing is finalized. Yay God!! To let you know how much stress that has been, my menstrual cycle hasn't come the past few months as the tax situation greatly ramped up. It came on Friday after dealing with the tax man and ending the situation.

As for my trading, hate to admit this, but the past 2 weeks, though I've had some nice profitable trades, the costing trades net exceeded the profits to have 2 consecutive weeks of net costs. Rarely does that happen, but I probably shouldn't have been trading with all the tax & financial stuff I had going on.

On top of those things, I've had some major computer/internet challenges that have taken literally many, many hours to resolve - lots of frustration and even some anger. It's brought out many emotions. And, don't forget, I'm a single parent with very active children and regular duties, and dealing with a former spouse.

I've decided with my former spouse, I will no longer think, write or speak negatively about him. Some stuff I was reading by Yvonne Oswald really convicted me about this area of my life. I will only speak good things into his life, no matter whether we disagree or not or things or going in my favor or not. The Bible says that by doing so, we make even our enemies to be at peace with us. I began putting that into practice Wednesday, and communications with him as been peaceful and amicable, reasonable. Not sure if that did it, but something did. I'll just praise God, nonetheless.

We do what we must do to get our lives in order. As a daytrader, I've found that I cannot totally separate everything in my life to just trade. My focus isn't that focused yet. Daytrading has really caused me to address all the emotional junk in my life. That's really not a bad thing, rather something that is greatly benefitting me by helping me be more aware and create healthier, exciting relationships & situations.

Life is what we make of it. How are you making your life? Be honest.
