As my exit from full-time employment gets longer, I start to realise that I am a good fit for FIRE. I like freedom. Freedom gives me the ability to choose the things which I prefer to be part of my life. I am not longer shackled to the conventional way of doing things. I can go my own way.
I do not like following the herd and desire carving my own path. FI allows me to have such initiative to do so.
One of the best things which FIRE has provided me, is the time to spend with my family. If I want more time to spend with my family, I will be able to trade the time I would have spent at work, with my family. Such aspect is the best benefit of FIRE.
I do not care about status. The “down-to-earth” and live on “enough” philosophy appeal to me.
