I think one of the reasons I used Carlin’s Law for this blog was that, so often, I feel like I’m in the bottom half of the equation. And unfortunately my mind is such that it seems to delight in bringing up every single time I proved myself a fool instead of keeping my mouth shut and letting people wonder.
At 48, I still don’t feel like I have a clue about anything. It’s hard not being jealous of those people who seem to have it all together, until you discover that they don’t have everything working either.
We’re all just raggedy human beings, trying to get through every single day without someone discovering what a total cock-up we’ve made of our lives, either professionally, personally or in whatever dimension we just haven’t been able to make things work.
That being said, I still like to think there is hope that tomorrow I won’t make a fool of myself yet again, or at least do it in way that it’s between me and God instead of me and a large audience.
