thank yu...after 35 years, was able to retire at 56. spouse is 53 and retired 3 yrs ago. i almost did, but wasn't quite ready. in the early 1980's, we realized we could early retire in our 50's. pay yourself first and what i now see as LBYM. after 6 months of retirement, lifesyle pretty much as expected except i don't miss the work as much as i thought i would.

Welcome! 3 months retired for me and seems like ages ago. Don't miss it at all. I thought the transition might be a little harder but glad I was wrong.

Six months in for me too!

And I'm loving every minute of it! I thought that I would at least think about my previous employment, but I find that I rarely do -- and even then, it's never with regret. I am perfectly content -- I almost feel like a child again, discovering new things to do, eating when hungry, resting when tired, joyful!

Congrats!

Congrats! I'm looking forward to ER....hopefully 13 months to go (although I will probably do some PT work in a gym/fitness studio for pocket money and interest). Anyway, I use to think I could never retire...was addicted to Megacorp 10 -12 hour days....thinking I was making a difference. Reality set in and now I'm in a countdown mode.
Again, congrats to you!
