I have spent a good amount of my life wondering when precisely it was going to be my turn. This may be the case for a good amount of people. But being a father who dedicated his life to family, having it be my turn just wasn’t happening. Look, I have no regrets in choosing to be a full time father and raise my family while my wife enjoyed a career. Honestly, even knowing what I know these days, I would likely choose to do it all over again. Yet with so much sacrifice, I just kept looking for a return. What I actually failed to realize was it was only going to be my turn if I simply took my turn. I found this out on a weekend away with some outdated university friends. It was the first time I actually experimented with any sort of marijuana product. A pretty good friend of mine from back then is a recreational marijuana user. This was certainly news to me. So when he gave all of some, I tried to refuse. That is until I witnessed some of the other people in the group having such a wonderful time with the sativa strains being passed around. So I finally gave it a shot. For me, there is no way I could ever inhale so that was completely out of the question. That was regularly a pressing turnoff for me when it came to recreational marijuana. But, there were some delicious looking cannabis edibles that my friend coached me on sampling. It was a pretty nice variety. That marijuana edible changed the way I was seeing my whole life. I finally came to the realization that it was up to me and nobody else to treat me right.
