About "testing" retirement.

http://beta.morningstar.com/articles/814615/what-i-learned-f...

most interesting portion to me was in item 10

"wondered why so many people drive cars in my neighborhood when they could just as easily walk or ride their bikes ...--about how grateful I am for my departed parents and my whole beautiful extended family. I decided ... should get ourselves to Asia soon, and take some more road trips. I reconsidered a grudge I had been holding against a loved one and decided to let it go. I actually think I might have gotten a little bit wiser."

My laid-off time has gotten to over a month now - and I am beginning to
consider that the ability to schedule things at my own time and my own pace
is a lot more pleasing than I had expected. Spending is much more flexible
than I had initially planned - and time together with the family is much
more pleasant when there is no count-down clock to Monday or any particular
time of day.

Still looking for work - but wondering about the reasoning as well as the need.
