Do you ever ask yourself why you stopped doing a thing,
Then when you do it, it slaps you on the head...hard...
And you are reminded..
I did that a couple of times in the last couple of days,
I reached out in ways I had promised myself I wouldn't again...
In one situation, it was a no harm, no foul kind of deal...
If it had worked, it would have been all good...
If it didn't work it would just be confirmation not to go there again,
In the other case I had simply forgotten why I wasn't doing it,
It had been so long...
Anyway, it was much like trying to drink milk when you are lactose intolerant,
You sip it down, ice cold and feel so refreshed,
It has been years since you did this,
And you actually took your lactaid before doing it,
However, the minute it hit your system,
Your body says, "Girl, I know you didn't just do, what I think you did?"
And once it acknowledges that you indeed do that thing,
It makes you pay...
With the final message being,
"THERE WAS A REASON WHY YOU WEREN'T DOING THAT ANY MORE"!
