For a change, I am happy. For a change, I look forward to the future. There are things that are about to happen; things that are life-altering, that incite some much needed optimism, that scare the hell out of me, that I actually welcome into my meager life. Lets just say, its that time of the year when I am incredibly positive and scarily anxious at the same time. Nonetheless, its an essential rite of passage and am confident that my plunge into the bay of no return will be both rewarding and rejuvenating.
For years, I needed a control variable, one that puts me in place, that gives me some inkling of a border between normal and excess, one that grounds me deep down into the chasm called reality, and now I am happy that I finally found it. And while I might have been the big bad wolf for most of my public life, I think that finally there are people that see that I have a little more to offer than goofball jokes, unneeded rants and frivolous exploits. I have lived for too long in big minutes and small victories, and now I finally get the chance to relish the small seconds and big victories.
So here’s to change. Here’s to love. Here’s to my amazing luck and incredible fortune. Cheers.
