The most valuable thing that approaching financial independence provides is options!
By this point in my life I realize that my interests and desires change fairly frequently. Having the ability to change my mind about what I want to do currently or in the future without having to worry about my financial situation is liberating.
One of the very first articles I wrote on this blog was about what financial independence means to me, and in that post I talk about how financial independence to me means freedom. That’s definitely true, and it hasn’t been until I’ve been closer to my own financial independence number that I realize how truly important that is for me and how much I value having options.
