Wishing all my readers a meaningful Independence Day.

On this delightful day, I’d like to share a milestone: I am debt free. I closed the only loan I had — that on my Swift. Though my original plan was to close the loan only in December, I threw whatever I could — including my free cash flow — towards closing the loan. Going forward, as D says, NO EMIs — we buy what our cash says we can.

Over the past week, I also managed to get rid of a whole bunch of physical clutter. It’s honestly liberating when you unclutter.

I now need to put a plan in place for financial independence.
