Hmm…SiennyLovesDrawing actually wishes to retire early, yes โœ…, since she has graduated & starting to work ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป, this is a life goal ๐ŸŽฏ that she is working on.

โ€œPlanning to retire? Before you do find your hidden passion, do the thing that you have always wanted to do.โ€ ~ By Catherine Pulsifer

Apart from the major concern ie. Enough financial to support early retirement, the rule of thumb widely recognised is only withdraw 4% from retirement savings each year

Personally to her, enough meant differently by each retirees, if you can be living on a lower budget that you’re comfortably adapting to, without any luxury elements, then your “enough” for early retirement surely more achievable, as compared to those that wish to enjoy a more luxury comfortable retirement life. So, a honest & reality self reflect is required to consider your retirement lifestyle, current or long term healthcare needs, living downsizing etc. ya ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

The important factor that drives her to achieving early retirement is what she is gonna do to fill her time after retire. Once retired, it means literally you have extra hours of 9 to 5 on your own, no need answering to many bosses, hurrayโ€ผ๏ธ She knows herself well that she needs to keep her time occupied, she just can’t be doing nothing for a long time, she just can’t, lol ๐Ÿ˜†

Frankly, initially when she wishes to retire early, so she can backpacking around the world ๐ŸŽ’๐ŸŒŽ, however with the global health pandemic now, she needs to pen down what she is gonna do instead before her long backpacking journey then

It’s just a new ๐Ÿ†• beginning after your retirement, enjoy new ๐Ÿ†• life for your own self. It’s a 2nd chance for all retirees to live life to its fullest to stay happy vital
