In the last post, I shared my long-standing belief with readers that time is our most precious commodity and the one that we should never lose sight of on our quest to early FI. Otherwise, why else are we doing what we’re doing?
But the concept of time is kind of abstract… it means different things to
We are now on Day 10 of water fasting. Just as I expected, starting around Day 7 or Day 8, I started observing some rather significant changes… During the first week, I did have some difficulties battling hunger pains, but those have now more or less subsided. Blemishes are now more pronounced and
Out here in the Bay Area, it finally looks like the rainy season has come to an end… maybe… In any event, the weather is starting to warm up again and it’s feeling more and more like spring. With that said, I thought now would be as good at time as any to initiate some spring cleaning. No, not in the traditional sense, although I do have a ton of clutter that I need to sort out before I can check out of Silicon Valley for good and embark for Hong Kong, the site of the next chapter of this journey…
But before we can get from Point A to Point B, I first need to “fix” myself. So, starting today, I’m going to
There is absolutely nothing in life that matters more than your own personal health — Without it, frankly, nothing else matters. Health is a very sensitive subject to talk about, and quite honestly, it’s something that I would rather prefer to keep private myself. But being a blogger and strong proponent of the early FI lifestyle, part of me feels a strong moral responsibility and obligation to spread the word as best I can. When it comes to health, the ravages of overwork are something that I know about all too well… I’ve been battling with Adrenal Fatigue/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) for a number of years now…
So, I learned very early on in my 20s not to take health
Starting today, I will be taking some time off to get away from everything… I’ll be out of town and hopefully as far as away from technology as possible.
I’m in search of inner peace… I will begin a spiritual journey to better connect myself with our Mother Earth.
It’s time to focus on some other (more important) things than just early FI and finance…
Although the journey to early FI is not yet complete, I believe that I have done everything that I possibly can to position myself for future success. It isn’t always easy, and many of the thoughts and strategies that I have implemented over the years will not resonate with others who are also on the journey.
That’s perfectly fine… If anything, it makes for some great debates and discussions. 🙂
One thing I’ve realized over the years is this — You have to stay true to yourself.
You won’t always be right… In fact, you’ll probably be wrong more times than right.
But learning doesn’t happen overnight… And in the end, you’ve got to go with your conviction and gut, even if it goes against the grain and popular sentiment.
With that said, I want to say “THANK YOU” to all the readers for your support through the last 4 years. It’s been a pretty amazing journey so far and I sincerely appreciate everything — comments, e-mails, meet ups, etc. It’s been an incredible ride…
Now, it’s time to focus on something else…
“For someone who was never meant for this world, I must confess I’m suddenly having a hard time leaving it. Of course, they say every atom in our bodies was once part of a star. Maybe I’m not leaving… maybe I’m going home.” — Vincent Freeman, Gattaca
You’ve only got one life to live!
I’ll be back soon. Take care everyone! Until next time…
