    For me, the “R.E.” part of FIRE is not about putting the tool’s down and sitting on a beach.

    I think I would get bored! Being a shift worker, I want the flexibility to work when I choose too. If I want to sleep in I will, if I want the weekend off with the family, I will. That’s the goal!

    I want to spend more time with my family. I don’t need a flash lifestyle all, I want the house paid off and my investments to cover our basic living expenses then I’ll be happy to stop working and watch my children grow up. All the hard work will be worth it when it’s time to Fire.

    That’s a great goal! Living a simple life and not needing excess sure is a great way to speed up Retiring Early. I’m also trying to lead a more minimalistic lifestyle.

    I don’t think I will actually leave work when I reach FIRE. I actually love my job but it would just feel great knowing that if anything changes I could support myself and leave whenever I needed too.

    That’s great to hear that you love your job! It would be nice going to work each day knowing that you can financially support yourself and can leave if needed.
