Three months to go and finally shifting stuff around

So I'm 3 months from getting 10 years at my job, vesting in some benefits, and ER. I've done my sums and budgets and I just moved $50k of equities into my 457 stable value fund to bring it's balance up to $120k. That will provide enough cash (along with some rental income and dividends) to fund my spending for the next 7 years, until I reach 59.5, even if my accessible equities lose all their value........reality is setting in and I'm both excited and scared.......

Congratulations.

Without wanting to sound too superstitious, but did you mean to start this thread in the "Life after FIRE" forum

Thanks, Yes I'm jumping the gun a bit I realize, but I think the change in my mind set justifies it.
