Today I got a response to an email that I had sent 4 years ago.
4 years ago…..
Did I know that I would live 4 years to get a response back to it then?
The email was nice and laughter-full. I was young and cheerful. I liked myself in that email. Yet, I cannot stop thinking that it has been a whole 4 years since I typed those words and clicked on “send”.
Four whole years….
I have lived 4 years since then…..Four years of my life have passed, which brought me 4 years closer to the end of my life.
How were those years? Was I good? Was my life better? Exciting? Hopeful?
I can remember a couple of important things that have happened since then. I bought a house, I lost my dad, and I lost an exciting personal opportunity. I started a budget and got better in controlling my finances. Work continued as usual. I visited my family every year. I got older. Everyone I know got older. Life continued.
The question is; will I be able to come back and read this post 4, 10, 20, 30 years later?
I hope so.
