I like spending money on shiny gadgets. I don’t live like a hermit. But intentionality in spending is what brings me closer to financial independence. I don’t like throwing money away.
Lots of people seem to think that reaching financial independence is about never doing anything fun. About living in a dump, only eating shitty foods, and never going on holiday.
To me, this couldn’t be farther from the truth. Becoming financially free to me is living life and spending intentionally. I don’t want to throw money away, but I also like to live the good life.
And living a good life means that sometimes you have to pay a bit more to do something awesome. Yes, that’s true, sometimes you have to spend a little bit more.
