I am at doorway of a similar less-is-more journey but at a much later age. My plan was to work until my customers no longer wanted me or until I collapsed; now, I am creating a slowdown plan to lead to semi-retirement in 2 years and full-retirement in 3 to 4. I’ll still be past traditional retirement age but much younger than I ever thought. Simplifying, downsizing, searching for time I’ve never had.
Your piece was inspirational for even an older person like me, Kayli!
