So it’s been nearly 6 months since we left our standard/normal/dual income life in Germany.
And I can firmly say that we’re doing better now than we’ve ever been!
Life is very different, but life is very good!
We’re very happy!!
I can’t say we’ve been focussing on income at all though. 😕
In fact, it’s something that we talked about recently and decided to re-focus on earning money again, because cash flow is tight over here!
We started to get a little bit worried because our lifestyle isn’t sustainable since we’re only semi-retired and not fully retired.
But when we logged into our accounts, we noticed our networth is up due to the markets being up!
It’s incredible to me that we’ve actually gotten richer in the last 6 months, even though we’ve quit our jobs, cut out our main source of income, and have definitely been spending more money than we’re bringing in.
That’s the power of investing and geographic arbitrage!
Would we have been richer if we stayed working in Germany?
Financially yes, but in every other way (physically, spiritually, emotionally, mentally)… NO!
So we’re on top!!
We’re really happy with the choices we’ve made. Though things are uncertain income-wise, we have a bit of buffer and will get to it when we get to it!
I guess we’re not in a mad rush to earn income because we feel like what we’re doing now – which is focussing on health and fitness – is one of the best investments we can make.
