Life, or Something Like It
I'm a writer. I always have been, and I always will be. Sometimes I'm not the most ingenious writer, or the most dedicated to my craft. But I love it. And sometimes, I find myself writing my life rather than living it. But, a week ago, that changed.
I took a chance and did something that I'd imagined doing, but had never really considered seriously. An opportunity presented itself, however, and I lunged at it. I picked up and took off without thinking it through logically all the way. And it turned out fantastically. My experience was amazing. It wasn't perfect, but it was just what I needed.
For the first time in a very long time, I felt like I was really living. I was in control of my life, and I did something because I wanted to. It felt like something out of the movies.
