I tried my best to mentally prepare, but alas my efforts were too little, too late! The last month has been crazy, wonderful, beautiful, difficult, and has pushed me in ways I never thought possible. A roller coaster of sorts, with many ups and downs, twists and turns, but in the end safely returning to the ground.
In all my craziest, the late nights, the lack of sleep and the crazy schedule, I realized something. I’M DOING WHAT I LOVE! In the thick of it, I couldn’t see what was in front of me. All I could see was the details, all the things that needed to be done, never the big picture.
Now that the marathon is complete, alone with only my thoughts, I feel extremely blessed. Blessed to do what I love every day, blessed for the people in my life, and blessed for the amazing opportunities I’ve been given.
If I ever take that for granted, please, someone bring me back to the ground!
