I’m 61, retired at 50. Sure I gave up earning quite a bit of money over that time. But I have enough to do pretty much what I want. I like to golf, shoot , and fly my plane. We also travel, that’s more of the wife’s thing.

My mother passed away when she was 55, so I know you never know when your time is up. My old job paid well, but took up all my time. Now I still don’t feel like I have enough time to do everything I want, but I don’t have work wasting most of it.

My dad retired at 57, the year mom died. He currently is 83 and living in assisted care. He was in pretty good shape till about 78, then started going downhill. Had a couple of strokes and now has to use a walker and has dementia. I’m glad he at least had quite a few good years to do what he wanted. He always said he wished he had quit working sooner.
