“I want to be that person”, I’d say.
For years, that was a dream.
Restricted by routine, expectation, normality.
That was just not me,
rather a dream of who I couldn’t be.
Without the right opportunities,
they seemed such distant dreams.
“I can’t travel alone,” I would say.
Excuse after excuse.
Until I realized: life goes on, and it won’t wait for me.
One baby step at a time,
I started to catch up.
And, this year was the big leap,
I’m now moving in stride with life.
Excuse-free and happy – I am now that person. That is me.
