It is.

I think what you'll find is that going forward, beyond maybe the immediate future, you'll pay less attention to it as the big milestone has been reached. Now it's just a matter of sticking with your good habits. For savings/investment, compounding becomes a bigger source of growth and so that makes things "easier" going forward.

Now, let me toss out some wisdom which you should keep in the back of your mind...DON'T GET COCKY! As you've experienced all the hard work to reach this milestone, being cocky can make it disappear extremely quickly. I won't go into all the ways it can happen, you're smart enough to figure those out - just keep it in mind, and when you're going to spend or invest a significant amount, just say to yourself "Let me think about this for an extra minute...I remember when njhowie said DON'T GET COCKY".
