Wasn't a milestone I was looking for but realized yesterday that my 2020 dividends exceeded my 2020 military retirement! 2021 is expected to do even better.

Not all of us! Some of us are semi-retired We hit our milestone a few years ago, but I love the work too much, so I am stuck in perpetual OMY land. Working exclusively from home makes it even better.

No more index funds. Mainly Tesla, Nvidia, Apple, stock options from my workplace, plus 2 properties.

IMHO the best thing about being retired is No more alarm clocks (how i loathed those things.
Congratulations on the retirement!

We are very small fry indeed (compared to many on this forum) and about 15 years away from retirement. We barely made it to the 7 figure club, but that includes our down-payment "fund" and our emergency savings. Hopefully, we will be squarely in 7 figure club 15 years from now. I'd love for my hard working DH to still be young enough to enjoy retirement with us.

I hope you enjoyed your trip as much as I do every time I drive up the west coast. Stunning scenery and sunsets. Downside is always likely to get a shower, or worse

And here I swore by the rule of 72, assuming an ROI rate of a meagre 7%!!!!!

Long may this bull market last!

Just keep on saving, it took my wife and I 37 years, but we saved 42X our spending before retirement, we had our 25X 6 years earlier, but I hadn't heard of FIRE at that time. We were self employed and I cut way back in Jan 2016, but I couldn't get the wife to, so she was doing two jobs (1.86 jobs, I worked 1 day out of the 7 ). Finally a hurricane destroyed the business and she retired. After 3 years of retirement spending, we are at 55X.

That compound interest thing, it's a phenomena!
