Hey, mazske,

I can relate. Sometimes, I think I'm only a few years away from FIRE, then I take a look around this house that'll need a new roof soon, the plumbing is going bad, it needs new carpet, new kitchen floor, new bathroom fixtures... then we have the same situation with cars, ourselves... I could go on and on.

When I get down abut FIRE plans, I take a look at where my retirement accounts were five years ago, and then compare that to today. I bet if you do the same, you'll be amazed at how far you've come. Stick with your plan as best you can, and you will get there some day.

You're doing great work, mazske. The world needs you. Hang in there!

Hang in there, mazske! You're doing great work
