For the past several months I've been thinking about where I was and what was happening exactly ten years ago. Tonight is the pinnacle of that.
I think about the things that I wish I had done differently, the way I would have done them if I had been a different person – the person who I am now. I also think about the things that I did right, which shaped who I am now. But I suppose, having written that down, that I must admit to being the result of my entire course of action, no matter how I view it now.
And I also have to concede, even if I'm too attached to all of those years ago, that I like where I am now far more than I could ever have expected. If nothing else, I've made good on at least that promise.
