Main driver for those “missed opportunity” was that I bought into ZM TDOC NVAX from long before, but unloaded quite a bit of all of them couple months into COVID to “divest” and invest in some stable companies in tech, semiconductor, digital space.

Yesterday was a good day. I was really impressed with myself. I woke up at 5, practiced dance lessons, did two water colors, made breakfast and tea, got to work by 10, put in 8-10 hours of solid work and then came home. It’s been ages since I painted or danced. However today, I slept till 7:00, did not work out or have food. Still got to work by 10 and did 8 solid hours of work. Some days are good and some are just okay. And that is okay. Trying to build on my good days and we all can. :)
