I may not be the brightest among many. I may not be the fastest among many. I may not even be the richest or the best looking or even the luckiest for that matter. It’s just that what I am is the most stubborn. For better or for worse, no matter what stands in the way, I will get through to whatever I set my mind on. One petty goal at a time. One day at a time.
Today, one of the more important goals can be crossed off, without fanfare, without ceremony, without anyone to celebrate it with. A quiet moment which marks the beginning of something greater than even myself. After what seems like a lifetime, the dream suddenly seems less insane and more real than it was before. After so long, I can begin the next part of the plan, the next long road until the end.
It’s just too bad I don’t have the time or people to celebrate every milestone of achievements anymore. I would have thrown one hell of a party.
