Until august, that was a good year for me. My portfolio was up and my few mistakes were largely compensated by my best moves.
Then, fall came and shit hit the fan. Since july 31th, my portfolio is down about 20%. And I don’t even count the money added to the portfolio since july 31th. So it’s a pretty shitty year. In fact, it’s the worst year of my life as an investor (I invest in the stock market since the fall of 2008).
But money isn’t everything. There’s other things in life such as butterflies, rainbows and love. And there's family. My girlfriend recently found out that she was pregnant after two miscarriages in the last years.
I said to myself : « I may lose some money, but I may regain it later. And if it’s not the case, at least, I’ll achieve my only real goal in life since I’m young which is to have at least two kids. »
Today, my girlfriend had a third miscarriage.
