Once upon a time, back when outside was open Asantee went to get massages periodically. As she reminisce on the memories of how therapeutic massages are, she remembers a moment she had with God.
I was looking at this job all wrong. I had crazy moments already, I’ve cried, almost threw up, checked a few PCA’s and then some. I came home minding my business and God said you’re looking at it wrong.
I have a theory that has been proven right but I’m going to test it one more time.
