Just taking a quick moment, because it is important to capture things in the moment and this is the moment – I mean THE moment. Months and months of pain and hard work and doubt and self-berating and anger and tears and hope has come to this. On this day. In this life. I need to savour it and celebrate it – and I promise I will at some point – but right now in the moment is just this big ball of emotion that I can physically feel sitting in my chest. It’s coming out. At some point when I am alone and won’t upset anyone else, it’s all going to come pouring out.
And then, when I can breathe again, the joy of it, the beautiful possibility of it all will come back into focus. The reason why I had to take the months and months of pain and hard work and doubt and self-berating and anger and tears and hope will be clear. My only job at that point, will be to convince you it was all so worth it.
But, for now, for this moment, I am keeping it all to myself.
