No, this isn’t a blog about a clever phrase to use when market volatility rears its ugly head (although it would be a good one, and you may see it again!). This is a quick post from all of us at The Asset Advisory Group to say Happy Memorial Day!
Forget about planning the perfect weekend. Forget about the ad showing a couple waking up to a freshly cooked breakfast in their staunch white bathrobes while the sun shines brightly throughout the house. Those ads leave out the hours spent grocery shopping, cooking, doing laundry, scrubbing the kitchen and cleaning the windows to get that moment just right. Few, if any can truly meet the standards imposed on us by popular media.
Instead, make it a priority over the next few days to enjoy the unofficial start to summer, take some time to remember those that have served this nation honorably and take some time for yourself. Whether that means turning off the cell phone for a few hours, putting down the remote or avoiding surfing for blogs, news and other information you probably don’t need right at this moment, take 30 minutes, find a corner of the house to rest your eyes and do something to reduce stress or invest in some “me” or “we” time.
Whatever you do, have a very Happy Memorial Day weekend! We’ll be back with our regular posts on Monday, June 7th.
