We Asked The Question:
What Was The Most Exciting Thing You Did Last Year?
Myra M: “I took flying lessons and got engaged to my instructor two months later.
Colin K: “I got off drugs, turned my life around and began spending my spare time getting high off teaching senior citizens, who had never learned to read….to read.”
April W: “I got engaged to a guy who had broken my heart when I was a freshman in college years ago. I never stopped loving him, and when he came back into my life last summer, I was thrilled. His re-appearance coincided with a severe bout of loneliness and I was easily taken in. But when I saw that he wasn’t sincere, and still the jerk he used to be, I dropped him. I was so proud of myself because I had never exhibited that kind of strength before.”
Cherrie N: “I gathered the nerve and asked my boss out to dinner, after being too petrified to approach him, and he accepted. It was the most wonderful evening I’ve spent with a man in a long time. I even picked him up and dropped him back home. At his door, he didn’t say anything about doing it again. He just thanked me for a lovely evening. Driving home, I felt a mixture of stupid and wonderful, because I couldn’t read what he felt. But when he asked me the next day, if I wanted to do it again, I was thrilled!”
Paula B: “I forgave a friend after five years of being bitter, and I felt a burden lifted. My best friend had married my husband, six months after I divorced him, and for a long time, I hated them both. But I was hurt more by what she did than I was by what he did.”
Charli T: “I won $50,000 in Las Vegas, and I brought a motorized wheelchair for a little girl with multiple sclerosis, in my neighborhood whose parents couldn’t afford one.”
Sara G: On Valentine’s Day, I went to Vegas alone to get lost in the crowd, and met the man of my dreams on the elevator at the hotel where I was staying. We got engaged in September.”
