what keeps you going on the way toward FIRE?

I seem to be a weirdo, I like working.

However, what I don't like is the choices I have made so far in setting up my finances. I have been quite stupid in many of my choices and as a result have little monetary to show for them. I did have a reasonably good time along the way. What I don't want is to be forced to work into my late 60s and 70s.

I want the freedom that FIRE implies. I want to be able to travel. I want to be able to buy my fiance the gifts I see her looking at. I want to provide her with a comfortable life.
