High School Revisited 50 Years Later

Gym and Quad Awalt High School, Mountain View, CA
     When you graduate from high school and you move into the world with so many visions of what you are going to do with your life and what you want to experience.  It seldom turns out like you envision it, but other times it turns out better.   I saw myself just like my father going to work 5 days a week in an office or something like it, but a few turns of fate allow me to have a very different life from what I thought I would. 

     Talking with so many of my classmates this
past weekend show me that many of them found themselves in the same situation.  Most of them have gotten themselves into a place that they found out that they really wanted to be, and are like me very happy with their lives.   Many are traveling all over the world and others are happy spending time with grand babies and family.  Either way, most are very happy the way that their lives have turned out.

     My Daddy use to tell me, "
not to let my studies get in the way of my education", something that I didn't understand at the time.
  Today it was following what my gut has told me and becoming educated through my life that has taken me to a very happy place today.   You rarely ever know how things are going to turn out, but if you are afraid to try, you will never go anywhere.   I try to follow the idea, "if it feels go do it" and not be afraid to get out there and enjoy your life.  ;o)
