On the cusp

Butterflies in my stomach, pounding headache, my breathing is rapid. Life is getting ready to make a huge turn and I'm excited. I need to calm down because I know it will be slow to change, but I can feel the changes happening. The confidence is slowly starting to build. I am in control of my own destiny which is as terrifying as it is exhilarating. For the stable, safe engineer these changes are slow, methodical, yet still revolutionary. For once, I am allowing myself to float among the clouds and dream big. I see the future, I am planning for the future, have already determined the steps necessary and I believe in myself. This journey will not be easy, will have many forks in the road, will most likely be filled with sleepless nights, but the rewards are big. And I will not take this journey alone, I have a teammate, a partner, a perfect compliment to myself. And together we will make our dream a reality.

That was beautiful. I could almost hear the violins in the background.

I was going to make a snippy comment like, "What? Did you buy a dog?" but then thought your prose deserved better.
