"It only means that those individuals have a lot less wealth than they otherwise would."

I probably would have a lot more wealth than I have if I gave up my dance lessons. But my dance lessons increase my quality of life. And I don't go into debt trying to pay for them. FI to me, means being able to include the "extras". In my life, dance is a passion of mine. In someone else's it may be that convertable.

Gee, with all this beautiful weather here, I"d like a convertable too.

So I"ll just have to review the money that is set away for my next car in a year or two. And I'll shop around til I find the one that I can pay cash for.

Living in FI is similiar to when you were saving to get here. But sometimes, you can afford something you postponed having when you were saving for FI. and believe me, it's worth the wait!
