I saw a friend last night, someone that it seems I have known for a lifetime. In talking, we realized that we’ve only known each other for less than two years. It was odd to realize that such a short time has past because most of the time, I feel like I’m going no where fast. I feel like I am standing still while everyone and everything is moving past me. I see little progress, little change in myself. But then I stop and I look. I look back at where I’ve been and am surprised at where I am. I see how far I’ve traveled and how much I’ve seen. I end up awed by how quickly the time has passed. I look back and see milestones passed, goals achieved and relationships built. I see a solid foundation on which to continue building a future, a future I look forward to and welcome with all the new challenges and changes it will bring.
Wow. Reading this I sound so sure, so comfortable but, I am pretty sure I am not like this all the time. I doubt anyone is. We all have our moments of doubt and worry. It’s normal, but today I am sure of where I am and where I am going and tonight I am going to work with one of the best female comedians there is and several other amazingly funny people. Today I am amazed at where I am. Maybe tomorrow I’ll worry about where I’m going, but today I will just savor.
