I had feelings similar to yours back in 2013. But I decided to just retire because my finances worked out according to FIRECALC so I just went ahead and retired. It was a wonderful decision. The last 7 years had been fantastic. So much free time every day to walk, play with my dog, practice yoga, play the piano, volunteer at the animal shelter.
