It’s so funny sometimes how things work out.
That’s something that I see more and more these days.
I think it has a lot to do with discovering cannabis. I was pretty straight laced all my life. I did what was expected of me and I stuck to all the rules and guidelines that I had been raised with. And I was pretty much mostly miserable all of my adult life. I’m pleased to say that’s not the case any longer. There is a lot of freedom when you realize your own agency. My wife and I met at a small, religious college. There was no experimenting with recreational marijuana or anything like that. I mean, I don’t think we even had our first kiss until like a couple of months into dating. And from there, we just sort of followed a path that wasn’t exactly ours. Yet, we did raise two good humans along the way. But once we were done actively parenting, it became pretty clear that we just really had nothing else. We split and have since become even closer friends. I found that I wanted to try cannabis products since it was legal to use recreational marijuana now. I still felt sort of weird but I leaned into trying new things. I’m so glad that the people at the local cannabis spot are so kind and were so willing to help such a cannabis rookie. It was so remarkable to find such liberty in my perspective once I started using sativa and indica strains. And what’s even more amazing is that my ex and I are now best friends as she too has found her way to the cannabis dispensary. We actually ran into each other there and just burst into laughter.
