I really learned a lot from this experience. As was attributed to Socrates, "The unexamined life is not worth living." It's taken a long time, decades actually, for me to get that every experience, every adventure is really just a bunch of lessons.
This did show me that we do have a good plan, that we need to stick to that execution and be willing to tweak it when necessary. It's good that my boss was such an ass in that, because his shenanigans were so outrageous, it pushed me to get some tests done. I had been playing a, "live well and hope it doesn't happen to me," game. This forced me to go to a doc and get some definitive answers.
Nothing is a sure bet but, this gives me better answers and encouraged us to make some better decisions towards The Freedom Project. We are closer to debt free than ever. I know, without a doubt, that my First Mate is the best ever. I don't have to tolerate bosses or situations like this anymore because, and this is key, I really don't desperately need the money to service debt. All that hard work over the last five years has been worth it.
We are going. The boat is getting closer and closer. Our list of things to add/upgrade is getting smaller and, this is important, we are getting better at making those decisions.
We are going. It's just timing.
