Since the start of this year I’ve been writing about money. Not for the sake of money alone, but because I would like to live a life of freedom. Not being a slave of a mortgage or a loan. Making my own choices.
I knew I had to learn a lot about money and that’s why I started this blog. It motivated me to read and learn more about money and it also encouraged me to stick to my goals.
After a couple of months I became less inclined to write about money. Yes, I still believe that being financially independent will increase my happiness and my personal freedom. I’m still sticking to my saving goals, and I’m working on improving my career opportunities. But money can’t be the only goal.
What I really want is an AWESOME life!
My money goals are putting a lot of pressure on me and it has taken things out of perspective. My career, my day to day work, and my savings account are becoming too important. This pressure starts to have an influence on the people around me, on how I enjoy my spare time and most of all it has an influence on my sleep.
Money is only one part of the equation. An awesome life is about happiness, challenging yourself, joy and fulfillment, being authentic, respect for others, personal freedom, feeling connected and a good sense of humor.
From now on this blog will focus on living an AWSOME life.
