Today is a very special day to me for two reasons: First, it marks the day I moved to the Netherlands two years ago. Second, it is the day I am officially and finally debt free. .
I have given people many different answers over the past two years regarding the reason I moved to the Netherlands. But one answer sums it up perfectly: it's just easier to live here... It's just easier to LIVE here, emotionally, progressively, and financially. In the past two years, I have been able to build a better life than any version that was ever promised to me regarding "The American Dream", which to me means living in debt, working yourself into the grave, and prioritizing work over everyone and everything only to achieve mediocrity and lose your health care. Living abroad has taught me so many things about the important things in life and I just want to express my gratitude to everyone who helped me achieve this great feat. I officially declare that I am debt free and I'm never going back.
