Little Words; Big Impact

…I was standing outside the day care center at my place of employment.  It was mid-May and the sun was shining.  I was talking to my co-worker about my Horrid Home Situation:  the screaming matches, the late-night drives to nowhere, the fact that I was sleeping on the couch.  She knew something was up, of course, because she’d observed the change in my demeanor.

She told me a story about an old relationship of hers and how she ended it.  And then she sighed and shook her head. “I don’t know…” she began.  “Honestly?  I think you’ll end up getting divorced.  And will suck because you’ll have to separate all your stuff and you’re gonna have to move….”

I nodded.  She wasn’t telling me anything my gut hadn’t said a thousand times.

“Really,” she continued.  “I’m not trying to be a downer.  It’s just that… I think you’re bigger than this.  You’re bigger than him.  And I think he knows it.”

Her words still echo in my mind as some of the most motivating motivators I heard during That Time Of My Life.
