Me and my best friend was at the beach chilling having a conversation and this what happen. Before you read, I hope you having a good day…well Monday… But I just hope you’ve a bless day.
So last night when I return home from work, my best friend call me around 1 in the morning and ask if I wanted to hangout at the beach? I was like sure but you know we can’t park at night in the parking lot right?. She said I know and that is why we going to walk halfway there. I didn’t mind, I reach my goal of 6000 steps so it was cool walk because of the breeze. Before we walk back to her vehicle. We sat down on the sand and talk. It stop raining couple of hours ago, so the stars was outstanding and we had a better view because we was by the water with no street lights and etc. She notice my movements and ask was I high? I was going to lie and say no but I was truthful and said yes… I ask her Why? She ask me do I need to smoke before heading out every time? I said no. The last question she ask was why do you smoke before you leave the house? Like I really wanna know? If you have a answer because most of y’all don’t.( Her other friends). I told her this… I myself feel more relaxed just smoking. I don’t know why I do it. All I know I’m more happy, calm, aware and more people friendly. I even notice I laugh allot more than I do. She ask me but do you have to smoke? I thought about it for a minute and told her NO I don’t. She smile and said at least you can be yourself without the weed. My friend don’t mind the weed smoke, she also do it occasionally, she more of a drinker.
You can ask me what I learn from that night and this is my answer. I feel like my friend was trying to tell me you don’t need to smoke or do any type of drugs just to enjoy yourself when you out in public. If people can’t accept you just for you then you don’t need them as friends. I totally get what my friend was telling me without her saying the words. You can always have fun enjoying life while sober and don’t allow someone else to tell you other wise. Be free and live for you. Life is short so have fun!
