Admission of Lifestyle Creep

As much as I wished that I had started on this path to FI lifestyle sooner, I realize that I needed all the failures in the money arena of my life to get to this point so I can work harder towards this goal.

Growing up, we were super poor and my parents were always super frugal. I wanted the opposite of this as an adult and I paid for it dearly. My parents wouldn’t be very proud of me, but I’m proud of the fact that I’m admitting right now that my lifestyle has slowly grown to match everything I made, and I’m tired of it.

I’m 32, and I want the next 10 years to make up for all that I have not done for the past 10 years. I believe in redemption. I believe in better late than never. I believe that I can do it, and I’m going to do it.
