We find ourselves thankful for so many things this year as the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend arrives and we get together with family & friends.
Three years ago I was putting the final plans for our FIRE escape into place before early retiring. Our relatively free & independent lifestyle since then has been amazing.
I was reading about the Mayflower Pilgrims and other early colonial settlers from Europe to North America recently and they too were motivated to seek a new, more independent existence. While the Puritans were a pretty strict and intolerant bunch compared with today’s MegaCorp employers, they still were seeking freedom to live life the way it made them happy to.
This year I continue to be thankful for our freedom & independence. Here’s wishing everyone the same in achieving their journey to financial independence and retiring early!
