  1. I liked the Guardian article also. Every woman I know talks about the importance of time to oneself to get things done. Or just to recenter.

  2. Love this list! There are many interesting topics here. I loved the list of top jobs if you could work for free b/c it underscores the point that what many people want is more time for hobbies and passion projects — gardening, being with animals, etc. That’s the biggest benefit of FIRE — being able to “work” (essentially dedicate more time) to things you love. For us, that passion project is travel, and now that our youngest is off to college (less than 3 weeks away!) we have several trips planned. I’ve been telling people we’re on an “adult gap year”!
