Life is a series of lessons which must be lived to be understood. Should I do this? I don’t know. Should I do that? I’m not sure. I remember when I was young and dumb and life was great because I was not worried about anyone but myself.
I was skinny and I could eat anything that I wanted.
I could climb on tables in restaurants with my friends just because we wanted to.
I could go for days, months, years and nothing mattered.
I was dumb. Young and dumb.
I didn’t really value friendships as much as I do now.
I didn’t care about warning signs. Or people who tried to give me good advice that I should have taken.
Then for one reason or another on August 17, 2002 I got married. Yup. Today is my unanniversary. Is that even a word? Well it is now. I am obviously not married anymore but I will still always remember my anniversary… umm I mean my unanniversary. One strange thing about our unanniversary date is that it is also JP’s unanniversary date. Is this just coincidence or a sign? Sometimes we joke that we should get married on August 17th… I mean we both already have that date engrained in our memory. So Happy Unanniversary to us!
And as Walt Disney said “We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths”.
