Last night I went to see See You In My Dreams, a small, sweet movie about widowhood. I left the theater thinking it could have been so much more. Then it snuck up on me. It wasn’t so much about widowhood as it was about loneliness and the decisions, good and not so good, widows make to avoid being alone.
You work at looking busy. You work at looking happy. You work on seeming “fine.”
I remember those days, and both the good and bad decisions. Dating too soon. Spending too much. Giving away both precious time and money. I’d never want to go through the loss again; but, I’d love to have another go at making better, more conscious decisions.
