last week, we were out on a walk when Mama looked over at me & lovingly acknowledged, “you know, Monday is the start to the rest of your life?”
I gave her an ounce of side eye, withheld my snark, expressed my thanks for the sincere sentiment & went on with my day.
& now, as Monday has finally arrived, it has hit me that she’s right.
you see, Mama knows me better than most people, & no one understands how much I’ve been hurt over the past 6 months more than her.
& today, as I start a new job, take on a new title, tackle new challenges, & drive a new route to a new office, it all feels different, I feel different…in the best way possible.
so let’s see where these sparkly shoes will take me this time, shall we?
