73. Turning the Corner
As Tiffany packed her suitcase and her soccer bag, she felt the butterflies.  Girls from thirty states were playing in this tournament.  'Butterflies?' she asked herself.  'Dragons ready to burn and shred anybody that gets in their way.' The little villain couldn't wait to see what was around the corner in Florida.

After Devin spoke, Lori knew he understood.  Things were going to be different, just as she'd known they'd have to be if they were to stay together.  She pulled him close, happy but a little nervous about  what might be around the corner for their relationship.

Driving home from the evaluation, Mikey passed one of his favorite watering holes.  He thought about stopping in for a beer, just to prove he could have just one.  To his surprise his stomach knotted up as a wave of anxiety passed over him.  He knew he'd turned a corner, but he wasn't at all sure he liked it.

Today I will accept turning a corner may not feel great at first.
