Evolving Goals: From FIRE To Holistic Independence
When I started this journey, I was solely focused on FIRE. While our progress so far has been great, I am most impressed with the unintended consequences of what has happened in our lives since this shift and also due to some unexpected circumstances in my life.
Once we started to take control of our finances the question emerged: What other areas of our lives could we further improve?
What is new?
Currently we are both VERY energized and focused around minimizing stuff. Let me tell you, once you start, it is hard to stop!
We have reduced around 3k + items (including a donated car), and are getting close to where our balance / goal is within the minimalist spectrum. Even our kids are starting to go along with the idea an initial lackluster response.
I will be writing more posts on that topic as we go forward, stay tuned if interested!

Now that we have finally taken steps to align our priorities with our time and energy IN PRACTICE, I will start providing you updates on my life plan, beyond just our financial goals. Follow along and share yours!

Now tell me, what are you focusing on? What has surprised you the most in your journey to FIRE? Where are you focused on now that is hard?
