The Road Less Travelled

Hey, guys!  Have you ever dreamed and plotted and planned for something for so long that when the time finally presented itself for it to be implemented you were almost caught off guard?  Have you ever hyped and cajoled yourself into taking a huge leap of faith only to be confronted later by two lead feet when it finally came time to jump?  I had been intimating for awhile now about making some seismic shifts in my life... but I'm not even going to front: when the moment ultimately arose for me to put my words to action, I got knots the size of golf balls in my stomach.  Nevertheless, I persisted... and made my move.  Literally.

And so I'm sitting here - excited, exhausted, but eternally enthused.  I am not even going to attempt to unfurl the lengthy testimony of my long sojourn (both mentally and physically) from "here" to "there".  Nope.  Not gonna.  At least not right this minute.  Instead, I'd rather bask in the success of my arrival and rest in the comfort of having accomplished said feat.  It's just one bullet point on a fully loaded journey.  I'm making strides and - step by step - promises I made to myself are being kept.  But I can't rest on my laurels now; I've got to keep going.  I've got so much left still to do.  And so many more promises left to keep.

And miles to go before I sleep.  And miles to go before I sleep...
