My Jobless Life

Contrary to what you might think, my last day at work about 3 years ago was one filled with excitement. Oh! Wait, one of my mind agents just reminded me that it was 3 months ago. I was excited to leave my job which had become somewhat boring. I could see myself going for holidays to the Bahamas with my crush Trey Songz (Read the story about my former crush here), sleeping all day long, watching all my favorite movies and reading books by all my favorite writers. Life was going to be so easy. My (former) boss was wrong to think that sacking me would make my life miserable. But someone should have warned me that even though the grass looks greener on the other side, it doesn’t just magically turn green; there are several factors involved.

Being jobless is the worst thing yet the best thing that could ever happen to someone. It is tough, heartbreaking and lonely but on a positive note it teaches you valuable life lessons. It makes you endure forces that you never imagined. It brings out some inner strength in you that you never thought you had. And instead of regretting being jobless, you will be grateful it happened.
