I’ve learned later in life not to sweat the small stuff so much.
- For much of my life, I was always trying to control outcomes or manipulate things to my favor.
Sometimes it worked out and sometimes it didn’t. But the stress and energy that went into trying to control everything ended up just wearing me out. Then I made my first trip to the cannabis dispensary and all that changed. Prior to marijuana getting legalized in our state, I hadn’t indulged in any sort of cannabis. But with it legal and the state of my life, I was hoping to find marijuana to be a bit of a distraction. So I went with a friend as he shopped for the cannabis products he wanted at a nearby cannabis dispensary. I was curious so I spoke with a member of staff and he asked me some really interesting questions. This resulted in me telling him about how tired of the game I was and that I was looking for a respite from it. I’ll never forget that guy at that cannabis dispensary telling me that the hybrid strains we suggested would provide just that feeling. But, that marijuana might just change my perspective all the way around. That night I enjoyed my first recreational marijuana experience with my friend. We cooked, enjoyed those hybrid strains and had the best evening. It’s been just six months now since that tipping point in my life. And sure enough, that dude at the cannabis dispensary was right on the money. Marijuana did change my life.
