Hi, I’m Yash

Happiness is the Ulitmate Success. Do you agree? But it’s hard to live happy when you don’t have money—that’s the ugly truth.

Welcome to Elfin Ideas — the blog of my own Pursuit of Happiness except this one is real life and not a movie (not yet).  When we were 17yo, we had always wished we could graduate and make our own money. The good news is, your wish came true. The bad news is, it’s not as you expected it and now you wish you are 17yo again. Isn’t it ironic? I realized that I will be working until I’m 65yo (damn!!). After retirement, we still need to pay bills – food, utilities, medicine. You can’t live without money, you can’t die without money because you still need to pay the funeral costs.

Why You Keep Reading?

Because you realized the same scenario in your life and it’s scary though. Hey! I’m not trying to scare you at all. Age is a gift, an opportunity to make things better. I’m not an expert in happiness either. I am just like you, or at least I was – I dreamed of the same dreams you have and I’m confused as hell how to deal with future planning.

As a 29 years old working adult, I am feeling the pressures of turning 30. I was that 17yo teen whose wishes came true but things didn’t turn out as I expected. I am from a middle-class family and IT consultant, a UX designer to be precise. Being in this profession for more than 8 years had taken so much of my time that I didn’t have time to focus on what really matters in life – health, financial planning, and doing what I love. Our work demands so much of our time and I’m sure you can all relate to this. I did not have the right people to guide me on how to plan my future and be financially free to do what I love.

What do I love?

I love to travel and explore the culture, religion, photographing, cooking & mainly eat a lot of food. I am an atheist and I am loyal to all and I believe in people rather than religion or caste. My dream is to travel the world and not worry about retirement. I want to experience the world.

Take nothing but pictures, Leave nothing but footprints, Kill nothing but time.

This pandemic COVID-19 quarantine had me look back and reflect on my own life. Why am I still not doing what I love? What should I do? Where do I start? It scares me to think that I might be doing the same shit until I turn 65 (damn!!) On the bright side, I still have a lot of time before 65. So here I am experimenting with my life, trying to achieve financial freedom.

What to expect from me?

Expectations lead to heartbreak (based on experience). Therefore, let this blog be a surprise for all of us. Elfin Ideas goal is to promote self-motivation, Goal-time setting, and financial planning.
