The end of rushing to get the afternoon train, leaving as early as possible to make sure that there is enough time in the evening to enjoy as a family.
The end of work uniforms.
The end of PAYG tax.
The end of paid leave.
Actually, the end of any regular pay.
But it also marks the beginning.
The beginning of a life lived on our own terms.
The beginning of becoming more self-sufficient.
The beginning of a hell of a lot of risk, and of a hell of a lot of work.
Today is Paul's last day at his current work.
Tomorrow he joins me working from home, to create a business (or two!) that we can be proud to call our own, and that will become a legacy for our children.
Who knows where this will all be at, and how we'll be feeling in 6 months time. But today, we are excited. Today we are hopeful. Today, we are ready.
