They say you should make sure to enjoy the ‘little things’ in life and I am learning (in my fourth week of early retirement) just how enjoyable the little things are.
This week, I have had very little scheduled. I had a few nice lunches and breakfasts with people, we went to the afternoon movie as a family ($5 Tuesdays), and I had a couple board/investment meetings, but none of the days were very full. Instead, I was able to take my time catching up on this & that. It was great.
I am starting to click into some of the things that were on my “What are you going to do in early retirement list” and my “pre-FIRE Escape Not-Bored List”. I’ll give you an update in some detail over the next couple weeks, but I can tell you whenever I don’t have anything to do (often), I have a lot of things to choose from. With respect to the John Lennon quote above, I am enjoying not making any plans and enjoying the little things that comprise life.
