One year closer to FIRE!!
I received the annual Happy Birthday wish from this forum today and I really love the message. "If you are not retired yet, you are one year closer and can rejoice."
A couple people asked me if birthdays bother me these days and this was precisely my answer. No way... I'm just one year closer to retirement. At 45, maybe people are half expecting a mid-life crisis of some kind?? I've certainly come across many mid-life crisis people over the years (new tattoos, new and adventurous activities, young girlfriends, etc.) and am happy to say I don't see that happening for me...
FIRE, here I come!!
