As a burnout “successful” person on the edge of FIRE trying to find my new footing… this article resonated a lot. A lot. Thanks for posting it.

I really like that article. I think the drive to dabble is one of my big drivers for wanting to RE. I didn't resonate with the first part of the article as much (my childhood was not a peaceful one) but the second half of the article really hit home. I want to figure out what I enjoy and be ok with being mediocre at it. I want to do things without there being a productive reason for it. Thanks for sharing.

 

Wow, a phone plan for fifteen bucks!
