{February 15, 2011}   Something About Me 12 – The third connection

I’m so excited about ‘third connection.’ His email was brief in the line of ‘remember me from school?’, ‘hope you are doing well,’ and ‘look forward in getting a response from you.’

I replied with a summary of all I remembered from him at school, plus a summary of my life post-college, marriage and singlehood. I also attached a few pictures of me.

He replied, “Sorry about what happened to you. You are the last person I would have thought would end up like you did. At school you were always friendly with everyone with a perky attitude. You smiling in those pictures, is how I remember you to be.”

He’s right. I was always smiling in school no matter what I was going through. And believe me, I had some difficult times there and truly later on as married. But somewhere along the line, I lost that smile that was so unique of me. I lost the drive to live, and everything that I represented.

I looked at the pictures I sent him and some of those college days. My smile now is very close to that back then.

‘Third connection’ was a blessing. It made me realize there’s still some work for me to do to fully get back to my signature smile.

Well, I’m doing that right now, smiling. I guess it’s working.
