I met three friends for lunch a few days ago. They are all financially free, having sufficient passive income to meet their expenses in life and more. They do not spend time chasing after money now.
We talked about a mutual friend of ours who is richer than any of us but seems to be more interested in getting even richer faster, sacrificing what we thought were more important things in life in doing so.
Then, more recently, I had a chat with a female friend:
See photos of the Rosemary I gave to my sis.
Do you actually cook these? Or you actually treat them like plants?
I am not much of a cook. I just grow them. I like the scent.
I see. I get you nice pot for you then.
I grow plant Bc they look beautiful and they are calming. I don't like flowers. only green things.
Please don't get me any nice pot. I like cheap cheap pots from NTUC fairprice and Daiso.
They are good and cheap. LOL. Thanks for the offer though.
Alamak. Even plants want to look pretty mah
I am sure they dun care. LOL
Ok...you always know what you want so I shldnt interfere
They care about getting enough light, water and nutrients. 😉
We can learn a thing or two from plants. 😉
To be financially free, ultimately, is to be free from working for money.
Life is too fragile and I decided to be nicer to myself after a series of unfortunate events which happened in the last couple of years.
A friend told me some time ago:
"You worked so hard for financial freedom. You have the resources to do whatever you want to do now. You should."
Yesterday, I said something similar to another friend who has achieved financial freedom but still drags himself to work because he thinks he doesn't have enough money.
For some, it could one day be a case of having too much money and not enough time.
We should know when we have enough money so that we can have more time.
Three point turn.
