I did it! FI, retired from my job yesterday. Freedom 39!
Yesterday I put my resignation in at work. It’s been interesting seeing the responses from people who generally seem in disbelief. When they find out I’m leaving the first question is always, “Where are you going?” When I tell them I’m retiring most are having a hard time understanding, but that’s okay. I have to explain I’m retiring from the rat race, but that doesn’t mean I won’t work in the future, I just don’t HAVE to.
This is so crazy…I have butterflies. I haven’t been unemployed since I was 14 so this is going to be a big transition. All the best to those of you who are there or working on it :)
