These are extremely stressful times and there's obviously a lot of negativity out there so I thought I'd ask a question to try and spin it a little differently:
What positive effects has this had on you? Will you make any changes for the better when things start to return to 'normal'?
Some things I can think of for myself:
I just recently moved across the country and all of this has really solidified the feelings I had that I will eventually move back to be closer to my family.
I have heard from friends who have lost their incomes over night. I'm lucky to still be working at this time but know it's not something I can count on forever. It's a clear reminder of why I became interested in financial independence and makes me want to work even harder to finally see an income from the work I do as an indie hacker.
For a while I've teetered on the edge of continuing my career as a software engineer or perhaps pivoting to something else that I find more meaningful/interesting (even if it means a pay cut) and I think this may have been the push that I needed to take these thoughts more seriously.
This has really renewed my energy for BJJ and working out in general. I'm really excited to get back to the mats and get some rolls in!
I'd love to hear from others!
