Unemployed and Happy(Yep, I said it)

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.

I 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 …

  1. LUV iz… having things in common

    I got fired on August 14… Friday @ 430pm.
    I was superPIST for that first week, but it has been the most liberating experience thus far in 2009 (maybe ever)

    Well, best of LUCk in finding fulfilling work with lifestyle-sustaining income
