As I was leaving my hometown Dallas for my next travels, it turned out be delayed several hours. At my gate, a guy of the same age was standing in line ahead of me to speak to an agent. We started chatting and a part of the conversation was us telling each other a little bit about ourselves. He was from Mexico traveling to Spain to study psychology. The conversation went deeper with him discussing how his Christian values play a huge role in his career, his future goals, and how studying psychology will shape that for him. By the end of our hour long conversation when both of us had spoken to an agent, we bid goodbye. A few minutes later I realized that we never got each other’s names.
Isn’t it intriguing how you can share your goals and dreams with a stranger in a simple situation? And somehow, not knowing his name made it more interesting.
