Brexit is Upon Us All. Life goes fucking on.

Life’s a relentless bitch so far for most of us. Just some quick thoughts for this month whilst I can get a break.

So we all heard, Article 50 for exiting the European Union has been triggered. Britain is going to be out of EU, loads of debate and negotiations going on about the terms and conditions of the exit. And then I start receiving emails about 50 opportunites in the Post Brexit World. As I mentioned above, I don’t have time nor energy for all these. If I were to start thinking about whether Brexit is going to affect me and worry about things like this, how would I be able to live my life?? (I should be worrying shouldn’t I)

I am starting to appreciate theescapeartist’s point on ‘No News is Good News‘ in the sense that not actively gobbling up the news or all information or reports out there like a news junkie is actually ‘good’ for your mental health, wealth and general happiness.

The idea of passive investing helps too, giving the market free rein to go where ever it wants. Let capitalism takes its course. We do our bit by focusing on ourselves, having tight finances and good cash flow and asking ourselves what we really need to be happy and really how much do we really need to be content.

The best things in life are the simple things.

I have also read a great article last weekend: The Greatest asset is YOU postulating that basically what we ourselves are our greatest asset. And with time we are in fact transmuting our human capital  into other forms of value, ie Financial capital, social capital, etc. It is up to us to make the transmution process be more efficient and maximise its potential, piling up the right kinds of assets rather than liabilities.

Some day I swear. I am going to see it with my own eyes.

Sony World Photography Awards Exhibition at Somerset House 21 April – 7 May 2017. Might be worth having a look. Photos are captured dreams after all.
