Part of the reason I haven’t been writing as much on this blog is my lack of vision for its direction. When I started this project I was just beginning my climb out of the pit known as debt, saving money and learning to invest it.Having been successful in paying off close to 50k in debt as well as saving over 100k and then buying a home without the servitude otherwise known as a mortgage (can you sense my hostility to debt these days?) I find myself in the middle world of financial independence; no longer drowning in debt, high living expenses or the need for a steady paycheck, but not having acquired the assets that would allow me to live off my investments. The middle world is a great place to be, full of many choices I once never would have had…
A lot of my interests revolve around the concept of the art of living a good life. Whether that be the economic foundations of a good life or how I’m trying to realign my dietary habits with nature it doesn’t all revolve around investing. Since this was the original intent of why I started this blog I’m left wondering if I should start another blog or continue this one and let it unfold to encompass all of my interests and not just one of them.
If only the path was always this obvious
At first I was thinking of going with a new blog, but then I thought maybe this was just my mind wanting to continue to compartmentalize aspects of my life believing that this is how things work, but then I realized that I don’t want to compartmentalize; I want to integrate. Obviously there will still be investing posts, but they will be mixed in with my philosophy of living as well.
I’m really curious what you guys have to say. Stay here and let The Stoic Investor evolve as I continue the journey or start something new?
