My oldest son entered high school this year. He said he likes it. He is very confident, outgoing and popular. He takes after his mother.
I told him I didn’t like high school very much. I was shy, introverted and not a member of “the in crowd”. I was a geek, a nerd, a brainiac. I wore thick, horn-rimmed glasses.
I mentioned this conversation to an old friend that I’ve known since high school. He said, “Really? But you had it pretty good in high school.”
That set me to thinking. I was the star of two school plays. I dated the valedictorian of the class ahead of me. I won an award for poetry and an award for math and science. I worked as a disc jockey at the local radio station.
He was right. I had a pretty good time in high school. I just never knew it.
If you are going through the worst of times due to a divorce or separation, remember, “To change your world, just change your mind.” You may find yourself going from the worst of times to the best of times.
