I had a great day today, met half a dozen great friends and mentors. Each one of us building our own: startup, funds, and journey of life.
I noticed a common pattern, we are happier and life feels more meaningful. This has not made life easy for us but gave us the freedom to live life on our terms. Each one has our true north, for me it has always been working with great people, having enough money to live a life and freedom.
Although my journey has been relatively shorter than other peers and still a long way ahead. We all agreed that we have become more empathetic. We can relate most pains of our peers and environment around more easily.
This journey has made me more humble & content.
