I DIDN’T KNOW

Me in the 1970’s eating cake the way it’s meant to be eaten.

I didn’t know.

I didn’t know about calories. About opinions or judgements. I didn’t know about exercise or the difference between carbs and protein. I didn’t know I was going to spend most of my life worrying about those things.

I didn’t know boys would break my heart or that I would feel not good enough for them. I didn’t know I’d work so hard for love just to find someone who makes it so easy.

I didn’t know I’d fail a lot or that I’d have to work hard to succeed.

All I knew was that I was safe and chocolate cake was yummy.

You don’t have to know what’s ahead to enjoy the right now. And when you do know maybe enjoy those moments even more. Have the chocolate cake. It’s okay.
