Expiration Dates

“I’m just going to lay it out there straight for you, Hannah,” she said. A heaping bowl of guacamole, freshly mashed by the waiter, stood as the only divider between us. “You have to figure out what you want. Plain and simple, figure out what you want.”
            Her words came draped with no tones of sympathy. There was no other option. That was it. Figure out what you want. Figure it out as if it was the only option left for your little life. Stop creating barriers and hurdles and excuses. Set expiration dates and move on.
here’s something you want. You’ll waste the whole week talking about the fact that you don’t know. You know. You do. It’s in there. It burns. It keeps you up at night and makes you feel unworthy when you go to ask for it in prayer. You know it. Please stop staying on the fringes of it. -Hannah Brencher
