A new leaf.

A co-worker of mine recently returned from his honeymoon, and as I crossed paths with him this morning, I found myself saying “How’s married life?” (I don’t know where it came from – it’s one of those small talk phrases that just pops out, like – ugh – “Happy Friday”.) and he responded “Awesome!”

I was seriously moved by that.

When people asked me that, I would say something like “Oh, it’s just soooo different” and quickly move on, because I was sure that no one actually wanted to know how married life was, they just needed to say something, and it’s better to be slightly sarcastic than to over-share, right? But why do I have to be like that? Negativity isn't helping anyone. And you know what – married life IS awesome.
