I Almost Forgot

Submitted on Nov 10, 2020 by  Destiny Smith

Every morning I take a pill and that has been my life for almost three years. Still, somehow I almost forget. I live day to day trying to better myself, and create different streams of income. All because I want - no, I need - to create generational wealth and end all generational curses. My mind is always busy so again, I almost forgot. I love when I forget, I just hope that doesn't make me bad. I'm an open book and I don't mind it, but sometimes I just love when I almost forget.

Now it's around that time again - my signature date; my signature season. Christmas has always been my favorite holiday. I love the energy, the vibes, the happiness, the laughter, the love, the joy, man I love it all. I still love Christmas. I don't think that could ever change. But if I'm being completely honest, this isn't so much of my season anymore. This year, December 26th to be exact, it will be my three year mark, but I mean, who's counting? I go all year just fine, almost forgetting, and then this season, the season that I once loved so dearly, comes around. It's like when it gets close I become a floating object on the outside of my body just going through the motions. I don't want to feel that way. I don't try to feel that way but I do.

I almost forgot and I know once the new year begins I'll start back at once almost forgetting, but then that season will come again.
