*That’s* what early retirement means. Having enough money to live your days however you please. What you do with that time is completely up to you. You can be bored and sit around all day doing nothing if that’s what gets your gourd, or you can live a more productive and fun/healthy/exciting life paying attention to whatever it is that makes your heart go flutter. http://www.budgetsaresexy.com/2014/10/retiring-early-means-being-financially-free/
When I started this journey I thought early retirement was the end goal. Now I've changed my mind - I'm working towards creating an online income that gives me the freedom to travel with my family, whenever I choose. That sounds like the kind of life I don't ever want to retire from.
