Fulfilling Destiny

I know I haven't been around much... Truth be told I have been insanely busy. Whether this is meant in the enjoyable or stressful manner, I leave as an exercise to the reader, although I would honestly say it has been quite a mix of both.

My life has never felt so wonderful.

But with all new discoveries of joy and happiness, there comes pain. New things change old standards and equalities and balances, and while one may know that their decisions are best and moving forward and upward and onward into this brand new discovery of where one is supposed to be is the right thing to do, others may argue. And right now, for me, others are arguing. My parents, to be precise.

But there comes a time when one has to question one's motives and actions, and determine where a certain path is leading and if that is where one wants to go. In the end, it is the final decision of the traveler, not of the observers, to determine the best course. Others may want a travel partner, but why go climb Mount Everest simply because someone else wants your company, when you know in your heart that you are meant to be exploring the Everglades? While the needs and desires of others deserve consideration in the giant equation of future decisions, the ultimate decision goes to the decider.

I am happy where I am, and I will no longer surrender my intentions for the future to someone who has never accepted me for who I was, not even in the past? I spent most of my life in a shadow entitled "Who you are supposed to be" instead of going out and discovering myself on my own.

Now that I have discovered myself, I will not surrender, not for anything. My life is mine, and I will live it to the best of my abilities. I will not give up the gains I have made simply because I am told they are the wrong ones... In my heart I know they are right, I have never been happier, and no amount of arguing or ridicule will take that away from me. I am happy, and I will remain happy, and I will remain me.

I have drawn the line, I will stand firm, I will never back down from who I am.
