A/N: I am really excited about this series! The first 4 parts will be based off Deana Carter’s Strawberry Wine which also titled the series. The next too on Dean Brody’s Another Man’s Gold and Zac Brown Band’s Chicken Fried. It is a story of unlikely love and it beating the odds basically. Fluffy mostly, with a few tears and some smut.
“You kissed!” Charlie exclaimed high fiving Jo and you couldn’t help but laugh, but you were stopped by Jo’s next reaction. “Wait did you guys do it?”
“What? No! Not then anyway! It was just a first kiss! We stayed out by the river for hours, talking and kissing. He walked me back to the house. Or close to it anyway. I didn’t really feel like Bobby seeing us and I am sure he didn’t either so we stopped at the barn. He kissed me goodnight and watched me walk back to the house.” You twisted the bracelet on your arm, a nervous tick you had picked up over the years and it always seemed to calm you down some.
“Come on! He is a guy. I am sure he wanted to do more than just kiss,” Jo pushed but was punched in the arm by Charlie before you had a chance to yell at her.
“Shut up Jo! Y/N that is so sweet! So you guys began dating?” Charlie tried to turn the conversation but before you had a chance to answer Benny’s voice sounded from across the street, letting you know the bus was ready to go.
Jo and Charlie followed you to your prefered seat and settled down with you. Charlie in the seat next to you and Jo across from her. They were both watching you, not so patiently waiting for you to continue the story on your own, but you weren’t sure how too and it took an impatient, “well?!” from Charlie to make you start talking again.
“We weren’t exactly dating. We couldn’t. Dean needed the job and the money to help his brother with school. He was going to Stanford to study law and Dean dreamed of one day putting aside enough money to buy a farm of his own. If Bobby found out, what had happened between us, he was going to fire Dean for sure. Neither of us wanted that. If Dean didn’t get paid he would have to return to California and I would lose him.” You took a deep breath and looked at your friends and Jo smiled at you, “so you were sneaking around?”
You returned her smile a little shyly, “Kinda. We were still hanging around each other all the time out in the open just like before, but the kissing was… out of sight I guess.”
Have you ever heard of the Oscar Curse? Neither had I until I read an articleabout how many actors’ careers are plagued after winning the golden statuette.
What!? Wouldn’t logic dictate otherwise? Curious, I Googled around and found many other articles, everywhere from Vogue to the New York Post, confirming this theory. (Halle Berry and Adrien Brody are two often-cited examples.) How can this be?
more research, I made a connection to a popular self-help theory:
Self-sabotage is most common when life is at its best. In The Big Leap, best-selling author Gay Hendricks calls this the “upper-limit problem.”
We do something—entirely subconsciously—that cools our bliss and halts our forward trajectory.
this means is we only feel comfortable with things going really well in
our lives for a certain period of time. When we hit our set threshold
of happiness, something inside of us says, You don’t deserve to be this happy, and we do something—entirely subconsciously—that cools our bliss and halts our forward trajectory.
