I’ll be the first to admit that I can be a little obsessive sometimes. I’m certainly obsessive about net worth and expenses. Until recently, I thought that by having my finger on the pulse of my financial well-being was important. But recently, I’ve come to think that I’ve lost perspective.
It’s been a while since I last posted. I feel so aimless these days. It’s like I’m running on autopilot. Everything is bland. Or stated differently, things that used to excite me don’t. I don’t have any fire in my belly.
My savings are on track. My “career” is still on track. Still have a g/f. Still hanging out with the same group of friends. I identified some problems in my life and fixed them. Everything should be going great, but I don’t feel that way. Is something sucking the life force out of me? Do I need a reboot? Am I wasting my life energy in my job?
Right now the plan is to take time off in three years. I will take at least a year off. I may never come back to the practice of law. As long as my income and expenses remain in check, I should be able to save a significant amount by then. I just wish in the meantime, I could feel more like myself…
