Glamorous lives


I caught up with old workmates at a company ‘reunion’ a few weeks back. Some of them I hadn’t seen since 2007 (that’s 16 years ago as I write this).

I was struck by a few things:

  • many conversations picked up easily again, as if it were just days, not decades, since we last spoke
  • so many things haven’t changed – we’re all the same old people we used to be
  • and yet, so many things have changed – the tragedies, hardships, health issues – everyone has their struggles
  • as a general comment on people – we all have our insecurities, but we all (usually) want the best for everyone

Life is rich. But often we only realise that in hindsight.
