The FIRE is starting to turn into FURY (Financially unbalanced retirement yearning)

Awesome!! This fits me too.

am curious what others of you make of a protacted dolldrum in the market with regards to your overall long term expectation of yield on your investments, and how it impacts your perspective of FIRE.

I could have written this post. I have the auto investments running and have paid off a house. I should be increasing my wealth, but I am down based on the indexes. Thats what I get for doing index funds.

Anyway. I just keep going. I try not to look at the balances too often. I try to put on a happy face when I do. "At least I had $10,000 to lose." At least my home is in a market that is still going up.

keep the faith. the fury will burn as fire soon.
