i woke up this morning. i could stop there, because that it is plenty on any day. today, like the last two months, i woke up in my hometown which is my home again. everything is both old and new. new job and old faces. new dreams and old despair. home has reminded me of much.
i woke up today, my phone didn’t. it’s dead. taken it’s last hard poke. it held much. over 9,000 pictures, hundreds of thoughts and ‘no face, no case’ text messages. i’m crushed. but i’ll wake up another day to think again. in the room i call home, i found my mom’s handwritten note. ‘let go and let god’ it read. it was perfect. i’ve done it before. that’s how i landed back here.
‘let go’, it read. face your goals forward. forget the old. it’s a reminder there’s many more glorious things to do. there’s splendor on the other side. go find out.
