Until Death Do Us Part

“It’s nice to get out, ” he says.

“It is, isn’t it?” she responds.

They eat a few crumbles of muffin and simultaneously sip some coffee.

“I’d never do this without you,” he says.

“Why would you deprive yourself if I couldn’t go for some reason?” she asks.

He pauses to take another sip, puts down the cup, looks her in the eye and answers with a smile, “Because it’s been fifty-nine years and two months.”


Read With Caution

A week after reading Live Like A Fruit Fly, my friend filed for divorce from her pigheaded, abusive husband.

A year later, after rereading my book, she quit her job.

On her first freedom filled Monday, which happened to be yesterday, I called to see if she was feeling nervous about starting a new venture.

She took an audible deep breath and slowly released the air.

She then said, in her perfect Texas twang, “Of course I’m a little nervous, but do you know what Gabe, this is the first time in fourteen years that I can actually breathe.”

This new venture of hers is already working out well but it’s always unsettling to separate yourself from a steady paycheck. Regardless of how lifeless you felt behind your desk everyday.

However, you may encounter a moment when your soul will no longer abide in victimhood quietly.

Your inner essence will beg you to chose the path of the hero.

And if you decide to choose this path, the red pill over the blue pill, the universe will respond in kind.

Doors, once rusted closed by society’s fears, will open for you. You may have to kick through them forcefully, but mark my words, they will indeed open.

The universe is working for you. It’s working with you. Through you.

You just have to listen and follow.

First, it may first politely tap you on the shoulder for a few years to get your attention.

Then, it will yell at you with a bullhorn.

If you insist on ignoring it, the universe will undoubtedly inject your veins with dose after dose of tough-love to get through to you.

Even if it ends being the cause of your demise.

Read Live Like A Fruit Fly with caution if you aren’t ready to file for divorce from victimhood.

But maybe it’s time to just chose to be ready. Maybe others are counting on you to do so.

The life you hoped for can start today.

I promise.
