Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers over the past week. (For those who don’t know, My sister in law passed away in a motorcycle accident a little over a week ago.)
One good thing to come out of this is the reflection on our life. My wife is only 35 and her sister was only 36 at the time of her death. It has made my wife think about what she has done and what she wants to do. She was trying to deal with family matters and she was getting all these petty emails on her Blackberry from people she works with. They knew she was dealing with the death of her sister and yet their sending her stupid emails about things like “ants” in their cubicle.
Can you imagine the nerve of some people?
She was faced with the reality that life is too short and other people she worked with are worried about ants.
A lot of good will come from my sister in law’s passing. A lot of great kids at the school where she taught are taking inspiration from this. My wife is taking inspiration too. She has decided that perhaps there is something better out there for her than working a JOB. Or at least something better than the for profit company she works at now.
I don’t know what’s going to happen for sure but I know that she is more committed than ever to helping me achieve my dreams. Why live an ordinary life? Why live a life of stress and having to take orders from someone else? Why have to beg a boss for time off?
Can you believe my wife’s boss only gave her 3 days off to grieve for the loss of her sister?
Who wants to work in corporate America? Not me!
