Dessy, I was not so brave as you are but I am as happy. My fancy firm went bankrupt while I was on maternity leave and I was overjoyed that I didn’t have to get back to work.
I slowed down, spent toddler years with the twins. Now as they are getting older, I am working more (diversified portfolio).
You have chosen the right way — with the corporate you don’t live and you can’t feel the beauty of good and simple life.
