New milestone hit $500,000

The stock market has recently been generous to my holding positions. Today I checked my computer and found that my asset less debts have reached $502,147 which puts me over my second to last milestone: $500K 

The growth is done by a combination of my bi-weekly contributions plus growth and dividends from my investments.

I think this number will obviously fluctuate up and down in the short term with market fluctuations, but in the long term it is good to see the trend is moving upwards steadily to my goal or $1MM.

Although I have completed my 100K, 250K, and now 500K milestones, I do not really feel anything different in my life. It is rather anticlimactic. My daily life and vocation and investing is business as usual. I suppose I will pop a bottle of champagne and go buy a cake to celebrate my personal milestone.
