pen to paper

It's a very enlivening moment when you realize that you're pursuing exactly what it is that makes you feel exhilarated, makes you feel whole. 

You've been going through the motions, chugging along on that track toward your dream and then suddenly you realize: hey, I'm really doing this

You stop and recognize that somewhere along the line - somewhere in the midst of all that doubt and confusion, in the dizzying puzzle of all those life choices you were forced to make - you gave yourself permission to trust your heart. 

And then, your heart thanks you.
