Welcome to A Remarkable Thought: A short story podcast to engage your mind and lift your spirit—a production of changeyourmindchangeeverything.org. In a world that runs on 5G, caffeine, obligations, shoulds, shouldn’ts, woulds, and wouldn’ts we’ve created a space where you can relax, laugh and think for yourself. Each week we will bring you a refreshing escape where your mind can wander in a thoughtful story as you visit wonders yet to be considered. At the end of every show, we will leave you with a quality question to ponder. This week's host is Jami Amerine with a original story she wrote called, Destination Destiny. Take a beat, take a breath, and listen in!
When she imagined her feet, she pictured them swollen to the size of two loaves of bread. They throbbed. Literally, her feet were throbbing in her overpriced work shoes. The shoes cost her a full day’s wages. They had barely been of any help.
Destiny was on her feet at least 10 hours a day. On this day, she limped home in agony. Not only had the shoes failed to make her day at the cafe less painful, but they also afforded her a wicked blister as well.
Her long brunette hair was escaping the confines of her management required bun. As it blew in the warm June breeze, the smell of grease from the cafe’s kitchen flooded her. Discouragement chased her down the block. She felt all the pangs of failure, well, she was the quintessential 22-year-old waitress, down on her life and luck.
She proded herself. “Come on Destiny, you’re almost there.” Through weary eyes, she could barely see the porch of her family’s Bronx brownstone. As her destination grew more feasible, dread assaulted her.
