I’m constantly reminded that life is just one big Fantastic Voyage. Things change on a dime and regardless of how much checking and re-checking one does, things large and small simply slip through the cracks.
Three years ago I let my hair go gray. The sparkling strands that kept appearing tempted me to accept them.
At some point in life you’re going to get hit with a major disappointment. It may be not making the cut on the school team, not getting into grad school, not getting the coveted internship, or not getting called back for the final round of interviews. Or it could be finding out that the one you love doesn’t love you, or your employer no longer finds you valuable, or you get that singular call from the Doctor that you feared but never really believe could happen to you.
A model I’m not.
