I want to be FI so I won't be relying on a job for my income. Most of the time, I like to work, but I want to be able to walk if I feel like it. I want the luxury of ALL my own time, to do with what I want to and what I think is important. I want to work (if I feel like it) in interesting and useful work for an organization that I believe in. I may even go back to school and take courses like philosophy, art and religion. I want to be able to volunteer in my community, meditate and pray. I want to leisurely visit and make homemade treats for my friends and neighbors. I want days when I have nothing I HAVE TO DO if I don't want to. I want to sit out on the deck and enjoy the nice weather. I don't have expensive tastes, and lead and love a simple life. I want to study Thoreau again. I am doing some of these things now, and want to do more when I am FI.
