Unemployed and Happy - Yep I Said It
By heartseverywhere on May 18, 2009
A year ago I was fired for the first time in my life. The next day a friend asked how I was doing. This is what I wrote:
After the initial blow – you can imagine for a prideful Leo, I was ecstatic.
am the happiest I have been in a really long time. This is the best
thing that has happened to me all year and I feel great. I was walking
around with a smile on my face like those people we used to hate. No
more dreading going to bed because I have to wake up to go there. It’s
like getting out of a bad marriage – but they did all the dirty work so
it was an easy break.
I’m really really good. Thank you for asking.
So now it's a year later and I've since managed to get another job and get myself fired again.
I'm back to that place - the happy place. Here's hoping a dangling
carrot of a paycheck doesn't suck me in again ... The whole shame me
once bit ...
