It is a bumpy ride getting to the place where you are at now. Today. And really, most people don't get there until much, much later. (some never at all until their life is more behind them than in front of them) They get caught up in the next step and jump in head first. And only much later down the path are they forced to stop and figure out who they really are and what they really want.

You are a very, very different person than you were when you left for Utah. You get it now. You understand what the bigger picture is and what is really important.

You are right where you are supposed to be at exactly the right time for you.

So happy for who you are.

Love you.
