Both a loss and a lesson

An e-mail just went out to all the FDIC offices (including mine) announcing the passing of a Claudette Carter. I recognized the name because I send a certain set of paperwork to her in San Francisco regularly. The e-mail said that she served the FDIC for 39 years. And I thought...my god!

While government jobs like hers have excellent benefits, I don't think they are ever enjoyable or stimulating. I mean people: she pushed paper for 39 years!!!

After pushing paper for 39 years she never got to retire. She never got to enjoy her last days traveling or relaxing or doing what she loves. No. She died doing what she's been doing most of her life...pushing papers.

All I can say is thank God I have discovered something I love. Thank God I'm packing up the little truck and heading to LA next month to see if I'm good enough at it to make a living. Thank God I'm taking a risk for a chance to live my dream...so I won't have to die after 39 years of pushing around paper.

Thank you God.
