I am now at the point in my career where I am seriously contemplating a submission for early retirement.  I know I have mentioned this before, but it fills my thoughts now on a daily basis.  If I do, and am accepted, it will reduce my income significantly and I am unsure whether or not it is a wise move.  I do know I am fairly miserable now, but I also know it can be worse.  If I do and am accepted, I will return to school full time and hopefully get my Masters so I can teach.  Then again, they may say no which would deny me a choice and leave only one path.  Please pray for me and my family as we choose what path we should take.  Thank you!

Yes, yes, youth is wasted on the young. And so is accumulated experience wasted on the old, the positives of modernism wasted on moderns, the beauty of Christianity wasted on Christians, the utility of scholarship wasted on scholars, and on and on.

I've been doing it for about 22 years, but yes, that's why it's called early retirement.   Grin

May God grant you the vision and wisdom to choose that path for your life which coincides with His will for you.
