Let’s face it. How many times have we wished for a fresh start, a clean slate or a new beginning? I know I’ve wished for it a thousand times over. I was not expecting it, but I was prepared for it mentally, when it finally came to pass. I was not prepared emotionally, not fully. If we all knew just how painful these fresh starts are, I believe we’d think twice about wishing for them. A clean slate is as literal as it gets. Losing it all, even your masks. There will come a day when you think the world is over. That will be the beginning. I have yet to decide for myself which is more frightening.
