Three years ago I decided that I should place deposits from my brain on the interweb once in a while. 1095 days have passed with random LifeInFIRE thoughts appearing a couple of times per month.
Why? There is no need in this world of existing information for some strange guy spewing additional words onto the conglomerate of bits and bytes we all consumer every day. But the freedoms we are granted allow such to happen. Life is Good. Life is GREAT!
Of all the thoughts I have posted, the one I think about most often is losing my doggie and a great buddy. I think about her every day and about the post itself often. She will live in the internet archives (assuming I’m archived) for eternity. My wife lost her lifelong doggie in 1994 and Bandit was on the internet back then too.
My post about Yola showed the advantage (and additional heartbreak) of being in FIRE. It showed how FIRE can allow you to spend more time each and every day with those that you love. Sharing more life and being closer than just evening-and-weekends-only allow. In many ways, that’s the key to the specialness of FIRE. FI is empowerment, RE is freedom.
I’ve shared many positive thoughts. I’ve shared how improvements have occurred in my/our lives. I’ve shared learnings I’ve had along the way.
I hope there is somewhat of a takeaway from this, that awesomeness exists if you look for it—or even better, realize it’s right there for you to grasp. You may have already grabbed the greatness, but also realize, there is even more…possibly endless awesomeness for you, and for you to share with others.
Make today better for you and those around you.
