I am in a cloud of bliss.
I feel like all my life I’ve been waiting,
looking towards the next benchmark in my life.
Hoping, praying, wishing.
I feel like there was always so much waiting.
Dreaming of what life would be like
after I graduated college, found a real job, met an actual nice guy,
started my real life.
And finally I am here.
Bragging makes me feel uncomfortable,
but honestly, I can’t hold myself back in this moment.
Because I feel so damn lucky to be in this moment right now.
On December 20th, near the steps of the state capital
and in front of a beautiful Christmas tree
my deepest wish came true.
Parts of that night are seriously a blur,
because I was just so happy and excited and emotional.
“We’re going to have the best life,” I remember saying tearfully.
But whenever I think of that night
or my future ahead of me,
my heart becomes so full, as if it may burst.
I never knew it was possible to feel this happy,
to contain this much joy and feel so much optimism for life.
Maybe all that waiting and wishing was worth it.
Tears of frustration and pouts of anguish.
Totally worth it.
Cheers to the start of 2013.
Which I am convinced is only the beginning of
the best days of my life.
Bliss, I tell you, pure bliss!
May it never end!
