Everything I've ever imagined for myself is neatly falling into place. It is at once both surreal and reassuring. This, all of this; this is what happens when you let your own happiness guide you, when you let the pursuit of absolute joy shape your path. When you know unending love in a way that most never will and when you have faith that your love will keep you safe. When you see no alternative but living the life you've always dreamed of and when you accept no other possibilities.

I don't know if I am smart, or determined, or blessed--or merely the victim of happy coincidences--but I do know that I am grateful. When the picture in your head lines up with what's in front of your face--there is nothing else I could possibly be.
