While this is a great news - along with maybe middle life crisis. I feel a sudden urge to stop saving and just enjoy life more. I am not interested in retiring in any sort, but I want to take advantage of the next 10 years while I am still "young" and "healthy" (Again, sometimes I feel like it's already too late to be young and healthy).
As of right now, I can't even spend all my income even if I wanted to. I make about $400k/year and I barely spends $200k.
I am thinking:
- Slow down on career. Stop chasing more promotions that will just add more piles my savings and consume so much time and stress.
- Spend more money on things I like, gifts to my family, charity, and more travel make me happy.
- Stop making a budget, tracking it, and stressing out about it. If I ended up spending 300k a year instead of 200k a year. What difference would it make? I will still be saving an extra 100k/year which will even push the $5M by 55 years old more. It just feels like I will be at a point where I am putting money in the bank that will never see the light.
