FIRE and finding your why.

Recently I have learned what the acronym FIRE means when it comes to personal finance: It stands for Financial Independence Retire Early, which is pretty much what I am trying to achieve through the goals that I have committed myself to. Some people will argue that retiring early can make life boring, but for me retiring just means that I have time to do the things that I really want to do.

I have been reading a lot of books lately and learned that finding your why? before you start on a FIRE journey is really important. You need to figure out why you want to be financial independent before you'll be able to commit your goal. For me, my why is spending time with people that I enjoy spending time with. I also want to wake up knowing not having to every stress about money and knowing that my family is taken care of because I have enough money.

Short post today, but I encourage you to dig deep and start asking the why? Then once you have the answer, continue to ask why until the idea become so simple that it can be summarize in a few word.
