The Journey Back
I feel as if a part of me has been on a long journey. While it's been gone, not only has it changed, but everything else has, too. It's been strange and overwhelming trying to figure out how it all fits together again.
Several months ago, something deeply personal happened that shook the very foundation of who I believed myself to be. It happened in the midst of an avalanche of other trials and I nearly became lost in it all. It was all I could do to merely put one foot in front of the other and press forward one agonizing step at a time.
With the help and support and some amazing and wonderful people and a whole lot of soul searching, the light finally shone and I was able to see the path laid out before me. The path I'm meant to take.
Over the past few weeks, I've started to shape my life - setting goals and making changes - and I've seen and felt a miraculous transformation occur.
I know who I am. I know where I'm going. And I know what I need to do to get there.
Maybe someday I'll share the details of my journey so far, when the wounds aren't so fresh and the healing not so new.
But for now, I'm happy to say that I am once again chasing dreams and slaying dragons with a laugh and a laptop.
And nothing is going to hold me back.
