Every day the voice in my head gets stronger and stronger, I’m always too tired when I get off work to enjoy the house and family I’m working so hard for. I do not belong in this 3 wall windowless cubicle listening to co-workers gripe about the project Suzie assigned them to.
I want to work in an environment where people don’t feel so harried, they actually take the time to smile and take in the feeling of accomplishment on a task completed. They are able to spend just as much time with their family making lifelong memories as typing up agendas to meetings no one will remember the next week.
I glance over to my calendar … Only 40 more years until retirement Great! But do I have to wait until I’m 67 to really start enjoying my family, my hobbies, and my life?
We live in a time the internet can open the doors to different thoughts, experiences, and lifestyles. I came across the term “financial freedom and independence” the concept of accumulating enough wealth that I am able to begin working by choice on things that inspire me.
I’d love to have the time and energy to cultivate that vegetable garden. I need to build a shed. I haven’t visited all the U.S. national parks. My bathroom faucet is leaking. I want to learn to make pasta not from a package but from flour and oil. I want to visit the gym at 10am when everyone else is at work. How about that second language I never have time to learn properly.
Wow! There it is my motivation…Financial Freedom…I need that.
Path to Retirement and Financial Independence
Financialkale.com will be my journal of activity as I scour the internet gathering tools, plans and ideas to aid me in reaching my goal. My hope is that by way of this blog I can connect with other like-minded readers and together we exchange concepts relating to finance, investments, and an overall purposeful spirit of frugalness.
I know there will be successes and failures along the way. Let’s start the journey…..
