最近考えさせられたツイート2
バックグラウンド 当ブログではマイル&ポイント関連記事がほとんどですが、私の人生の目標でもある「アーリーリタイア」関連についても記事にしております。この記事は「アーリーリタイア」関連です。 少し前にXで目にした投稿が気になりました。こちらです↓ 「病気をして自分の考え方が変わり、生活に変化が。好きなこと・やりたいことはどんどんやる。今しかない!って思ってます。。。お金もマイルも貯めるより使うにシフト」 平均寿命まで健康とは限らない 日本人の平均寿命は男性81歳、女性87歳だそうです。厚生労働省のデータだと死因のトップがガンで約30%。高齢で衰えてなくなるのは僅か3.4%だそうです。 この記事のトピックであるXの投稿主は病院で働かれていて2023年に乳がんの治療をされたようです。自分が医療系で働いているのにすぐに気づかなかった的なツイートもありました。 膨大にあるXの投稿の中から拾ってきたポストですが、確率を考えると自分がガンで死ぬ可能性は非常に高いことだし、まさにNanamiさんの状況に自分や家族もなる可能性があると思います。 つまり、平均寿命まで健康とは限らないという意味です。 「日本人の平均寿命が80歳ぐらいだから、まー70ぐらいまで大丈夫だろう。ということは55でリタイアすれば十分時間があるはずだ!」 というような根拠もない憶測はある意味危険じゃないかと思うようになりました。このように思うようになったのは過去の記事でもシェアしました。   やりたいことを優先 自分が病気になって初めて気づく自分の命の期限。本来なら気づきたくもない期限ですが、誰にでもあります(税金と死からは逃れられないとBenjamin Franklinも言ってます) 限られているなら今までの様にしたくないことなどをやっていては時間がもったいない。やりたいことと好きなことをどんどんやらなきゃ! とても重みのあるポストだなーと感じました。 さらになるほど~と思ったのはお金もマイルも今までは貯めるだったけど、使うにシフトするという発言です。Nanamiさんは日本でマイルなどを貯めている方で、旅行はマイルを使って行っていたようです。 私も全く同じことを住んでる国は違えどやっているので非常に腑に落ちた部分があります。「貯めることは確かに大切だけど使わないと全く今頑張っていることが無駄になる!」と   恐らく・・・ 本当に余裕がない生活の場合は期限があったとしても使うにシフトはできないと思います。私はNanamiさんのことを詳しく知らないのですが、恐らくマイル&ポイントもそうですが、貯金などもある程度ある方なのかなーなんて思いました。   まとめ 時には節約も必要ですが、マイル&ポイントは貯めたら使う! これって人生にも通じるアドバイスなのかなーなんてXの投稿をみて思いました。 SNSにはゴミみたいな情報もたくさんありますが、このように人生の先を行く人たちの考えやアドバイスなども転がっているので、それを上手く参考にして自分の人生も過ごせていけたらなーと思いました。 The post 最近考えさせられたツイート2 first appeared on アメリカ在住陸マイラー.
