Welcome to the inaugural Story Sunday. Each week, Story Sunday will highlight a photo I snapped in the previous week, accompanied by a brief narrative. I'm aiming for 1,000 words or less but I'm willing to run long if need be.
NEW YEAR, NEW YOU! all the ads touted.
I always laughed when I'd see the ads each year. Derision driven by a lack of desire. If there was ever a time to shop a so-called beauty store, it had passed a couple decades before.
Before my marriage.
Before having three kids.
But here I was. At the urging of those same kids who believe it's finally time for me to get "back out on the playing field," as they call it.
Stupid sports metaphors.
However, another pep talk wouldn't be bad about now. Someone telling me that I deserved another shot at love. That I not only could but would be successful at the dating game.
I need to get out of here now.
I can do this. I can have my own life again. If my kids can move beyond the past, so can I! Can't I?
"Did you find everything you were looking for?"
