Larry Wilmore on the Day He Resolved to Never Work Again

I spent a lot of time in many homes that summer [as a door-to-door book salesman] and the overwhelming recurring theme I noticed was how many people seemed unhappy with their lives.

Maybe it was their choice of job, choice of spouse, or just a general unease about the future, but it was unmistakable.

I vowed to myself that I would choose happiness and fulfillment above all else in my life’s direction.

I knew it didn’t matter how much money I made, how much status I had, or what kind of things I could accumulate.

I had to pour myself into doing something meaningful or there was no point.

I decided to choose a path for myself and whatever I did for a living was the physical manifestation of walking down that path.

I remember saying to myself, “I’m never going to work again. I’m only going to walk.”
