She starred at the board, and smiled.
There was a tick next to each item.
First the promotion, although it had been middle of the list. It was the first to be achieved.
The second was more dicey. But she had done it. Hosted multiple lavish dinners befitting their status.
Eric and her mother had beamed with pride.
On the side of the board was a sticky note. A single item.
She had not had the courage to put it on the vision board.
And she wasn’t going to either.
Her body and mind were not ready to try again yet.

One item, intriguing. As she gains confidence it may move closer, who knows?
I’m guessing that item was a baby
It is her decision and hers alone when to try again. Let’s hope mother and Eric don’t pressure her. Great take, that blue reflection does look like a sticky note.
I like what isn’t said as much as what is. Good writing.
When she’s ready she’ll know. Intriguing story.
