Pretty wild times we're living in.
My 401k is steady, HSA is steady, Monthly Roth IRA contributions also steady. Have been and will continue to max these out to legal limit, we are making no changes to this and I need to resist the urge to up my % contribution amounts more than anything else. "When in doubt, zoom out" but wow, what a drop. My inner market-timer is far more vocal than my inner panic-seller.
Additionally, throwing $774 a week, every Monday, into 70 VTSAX / 30 VTIAX, in brokerage (excess investments).
I started working during the Financial Crises and even when I made $13 bucks an hour back then, I saved 40-50% of my income and pretty much threw it into my retirement accounts. Have remained vigilant and on course ever since.
The difference is, back then that was not too much money - I remember, what, 500? 600 post tax a month?
My shovel is much bigger now. I am so thankful my past self made such wise investments and I know in 10,20,30,40 years I will look back and be thankful. However now, I am thinking more on the scale of providing for my family, creating multi generational wealth, diversifying into owning assets like real estate, or "realizing the potential of income and wealth to live a fruitful and sustainable life".
It's a position of privilege and I cross my fingers that my employment will remain sound. If it doesn't, we have a plan for that, and I hope we don't find ourselves in a position to HAVE to draw down emergency funds.
Keep The Course.
