Mid 1990’s. In College.
I was young. I was full of dreams. I was learning to be me. Making decisions both smart and stupid.
Fast forward to present day. It has been ten-plus years since my college days, a lifetime really.
Driving to work today, I saw me – that hopeful college girl crossing the street as I was stopped at a light.
You see, my office is in the same town in where I attended college. On the radio in my car played Send Me on My Way – a favorite back in my college days.
For those brief few moments, I saw me cross my car and we made eye contact. I wanted to tell me that all that worry, all those mistakes, all those right decisions paid off. I wanted to tell me, thank you.
But me smiled and sent me on my way as the light turned green.
