57. Welcome to the first day of the rest of your life

Last edited Wed Oct 13, 2021, 01:50 PM - Edit history (22)

As one of the fifty-somethings pushed out of the job market by the previous recession, I had to live on, and consequently lost, my savings (got evicted, too -- but thanks to generous DU-ers, endured only one night of homlesseness). Fortunately, I had earned enough during my working years to make the clerk's eyes pop when I filed for early retirement. But rather than taking up knitting and chair-rocking, I invested one of my social security checks into turning what I had enjoyed doing when not working into a permanent part-time venture -- and adventure.

So congratulations on both making it to the rat race finish line AND being able to determine how to live the rest of your life on YOUR terms (very wise of you to not stop working "cold turkey"). Now the only "investing" left to be done is in enjoying yourself as long as your health (and wealth) permits!
