It's been ten years since I've seen him. Ten years. I have no idea what he's doing, where he's been, or if he's even still single. Have I thought about him over the years? Of course. Absolutely. But that doesn't mean anything, right? Just because you think about the boy you used to be in love with doesn't mean you're still in love with him now. Does it?
I haven't seen her in ten years. She's the only reason I'm even coming to this reunion. If it wasn't for her, I would have stayed home. Sure, I made mistakes back in high school. Hell, I was just a kid then. But I'm here to right my wrongs, to tell her I'm sorry and win her back. She changed my whole life, and she doesn't even know it. It's time she knew.
I got fired from my last job.
I know you're sitting there thinking, "Jenn, how could anyone in their right mind fire someone like you?" And I'd love to give you a good reason, but the truth is that sometimes being all sorts of awesome isn't fun for other people. They don't always tend to like it. lol :)
So I picked my pride off the floor, bought a laptop and started writing my first book. And you know what I realized? Writing stories that meant something to me was a million times better than working my ass off for someone who didn't really care about anything other than the bottom line.
My soul has never felt more satisfied
My heart has never been more full
I've never worked so hard in my life, but I love every second of it. I truly do.
It is SO worth it.
All of it.
The journey it took to get to this point- I wouldn't change a thing.
So thank you for reading, loving and recommending the stories I write to other people. Your word of mouth is my very best friend.... that and your reviews. :)
I sincerely appreciate each and every one of you.
