One day it all made sense. She didn’t question it or analyze it like she did everything else. It just felt right. She took a deep breath, picked up her bag and walked out the door.
Darkness. It enveloped her. The more she searched for light, the darker it became. Trying to solve for her predicament, she inhaled and felt the fullness of oxygen fill her lungs and course through her body. She opened her eyes.
The brightness was blinding yet she was no longer afraid so she took a step and with each continued step, she felt a freedom unknown to her before. She could do anything she wanted to and that included following the shadows of the dreams she had forgotten about. It was an opportunity to rescue her hopes and wishes for her life that she had long cast aside in her haste to do what was right at that moment. She never stopped to think if it was right until it was too late, but to her delight she found that it is never too late.
This time she didn’t walk; she ran.
