This feeling reminds me of the song by Kate Earl - Learning to Fly.
I've always wanted to reach a moment where I could feel this type of pride. I am so thankful for how it has all gone. I am so thankful that I feel I have earned this moment.
Learning to Fly - Kate Earl
I've made mistakes
But I won't be ashamed
It feels like fate is lifting me
I can't seem to keep my feet on the ground
I no longer hide
So I let the sun wash over me
Cause there's no darkness left to hold me down
And I feel it's light
And I found the spark that was missing from my life.
I've earned these wings I was not born with them
And it's no accident
How I walked through the rain and the fire
Cause it taught me how to love
It taught me how to fight
And finally I'm learning to fly
Listen to it if you get the chance. Off to the gym this morning for a final workout before leaving Canterbury. I'll be in London for a mega-shopping spree, so that will count as both my cardio and weight lifting for the next two days :)
