Released

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.
