25 Years

 To look back on the last 25 years, I can say that things have changed a lot and some things happened for the right reasons. On this day 25 years ago, I was at a party for some friends that had been on a trip to India. It was close to where I lived, so it meant that I could walk over to the party. I went after hearing that the person that invited me didn’t think I would be attending, even after I said I would go.

So, as you can probably guess, I went to the party and had a pretty good time. What I hadn’t plan on happening is meeting someone at the party who was also a guest. I ended up dating this individual later that year thanks to the guy that invited me to the party, giving this other guy my phone number.

The guy that I started dating was wonderful and someone that made me feel special, and to this day he still makes me feel special. After a couple of years of dating, we decided to get married and have been happily married for almost 23 years now. So yes, an invitation to a party ended up changing my life in such a good way. I got to spend time with some people that I didn’t know, and I met the guy that would later on become my husband.

As I look back 25 years, I hadn’t planned on meeting someone at this party, but I am really glad that I did. I found my partner who I love and cherish.

  1. But have you learned to actually accept 'business' cards given to you at such events, and leave the mental processing until later, rather than later hoping for a reconnection?
