One of the happiest days of my life was the day I was fired from Goodwill.
I had the biggest grin on my face; a tremendous burden had been lifted from my shoulders.
I’m sure it was a little disconcerting for my manager, but my reaction was not uncommon.
My experience there is is a benchmark I use now to cheer myself up when things are not going well, as in: “Yes, I am drowning in a lake of fire, covered in boils and stung by scorpions, but at least I’m not still at Goodwill.”
I have no idea why I stayed as long as I did.
That was a mistake.
