FI School Lesson 13: Happiness
We all have different reasons for FI, but they all lead to the one true why: happiness. Without happiness, there’s no meaning and fulfillment in FI and all the money we’ve saved.
Let’s not forget this critical element—not only once we reach FI, but during the FI journey.
I look back at the past few years of my life and at my bank account and I would gladly give away a hefty chunk of it and work longer if it meant I could have experienced more of the world and found more passions I could have for the rest of my life, especially with someone I had loved so much.
I built my savings, but I never built my life.
