Tomorrow is my 20th High School Reunion.
Yup it's been 20 years since I stood in a yellow cap and gown on the football field of my high school. Sometimes it's doesn't feel possible.
Other times it feels like a lifetime ago.
Back in 2005 I opted out of attending the 10 year reunion. I had just had a baby and was not feeling it. My life had taken some drastic changes at the time and I wasn't really ready to have to talk or explain myself and my life to people.
Now another 10 years later I am excited to go back. At this time in my life things are good, comfortable and happy. Is my life the one I dreamed about back in high school? Nope. I never would have imagined my life ending up the way it has. I was going to go to college forever. I wanted degrees on degrees. I did not want children. I had never imagined living so far from home. But this life I never imagined is good. Really good.
Today I am much more comfortable in my own skin. I am content with where my life is right now and I am happy with the person I am. I went to high school with some really awesome, kind, good-hearted people and I am excited to catch up and see all of them.
Of course I colored all my gray hair. I am not going to be that "real".
Did you or will you attend your high school reunions?
