I wonder.

I wonder because I have no idea what to expect.

All I know is what is right in front of me today. Isn’t that the way we are supposed to live? Isn’t that what I’ve been going for all these years? Right here. Right now. This moment?

It is.

That’s what you’ve been working for. In fact, this journey has shown you so much more than just living in the moment. It’s shown you…what it really means to be living. No matter how tired you are right now, you feel alive.

You feel connected.

You feel as if, for the very first time in a long time, that what you are doing is completely worthwhile.

It is.

It is worthwhile because it’s something that you love and respect more than anything.

I’ve come to respect the work. I’ve come to respect the burning feeling I have coursing through my muscles.

I come to respect coming off a machine completely exhausted with my hands on my knees trying to catch my breath before the next set starts.

I hit a wall today. But I hit back.

I’m almost there. I can’t be stopped. Not now. Not with 12 days left. I’m so close I can taste it.

I am there. All I have to do is put in these last two weeks of very hard work and what I had dreamed of for such a long time will be mine.

Yes I can.

Yes I can
