It’s so funny occasionally how things labor out.
That’s something that I see more & more these afternoons.
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 & I stuck to all the rules & guidelines that I had been raised with. And I was pretty much mostly miserable all of my adult life. I’m triumphant to say that’s not the case any longer. There is a lot of freedom when you realize your own agency, my wife & I met at a small, religious college. There was no experimenting with recreational marijuana or anything like that. I mean, I don’t think my pal and I even had our first kiss until like a couple of months into dating. And from there, my pal and I just sort of followed a path that wasn’t exactly ours, and yet, my pal and I did raise two good humans along the way. But once my pal and I were done actively parenting, it became pretty clear that my pal and I just really had nothing else. We split & 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 unusual but I leaned into trying new things. I’m so glad that the people at the local cannabis spot are so kind & 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 & indica strains. And what’s even more amazing is that my ex & I are now best friends as she too has found her way to the cannabis dispensary. We entirely ran into each other there & just burst into laughter.
