I retired in December. I had only just become eligible to retire from my state job in August. I hung in an extra couple months to collect my 2020 bonus pay & then I was outta there.
It was the best decision I ever made. Working for the state, hanging in there for 26 years, and leaving as soon as I could. I have always been thankful for My Life - but these days hold even more gratitude for me. For the freedom they bring.
Good luck! May the light shine upon your path and may your steps be sure. <3
