The 100 Day Project : Day One

April 6, 2015

The Day was upward of 100 degrees and the humidity could be cut with a knife. She sat under one of the only trees that wasn't occupied by another park dweller. Even in the shade she could feel the heat of the sun radiating off of everything around her. Closing her eyes she tried to listen to the sound of the soft breeze and attempted not to move. It was times like these she was glad that no one excepted her constant invitations to hang out. The more people around, the more heat they created. With her eyes still closed she thought about all that had occurred in the recent weeks. She attempted to justify all of her recent impulsive behaviors with being young and dumb. Making herself believe that her decisions had been character building. She had not wanted to admit that she let herself be swayed by someone who she, at one point, wanted nothing more than to emulate. If nothing had transpired the way it had she would still be stuck in that lifestyle. Opening her eyes, she sits up and clutches her stomach. She smiles thinking about how directionless her life was before. Two new beginnings.  #the100dayproject #100daysofmicrostories
