Unlucky at the card table, lucky in life

I’ve never felt so good about my life as I have over the last few weeks.

Exactly a month ago I got married with an incredible woman that I now feel privileged to call my wife.

The day of the wedding has been an incredible rollercoaster of emotions. It was a celebration of joy and affection, the joining of two families through the bond that I share with Laura.

It was better than I thought it would be, and it left me with a feeling of satisfaction and happiness that can only be compared to what I felt when I finished my Camino in 2013.

Everything is going in the right direction at work as well, which helps to reinforce that feeling.

Although I’m in a pretty happy place right now, deep down I can’t help but slightly worry about  when this good run will end. I just can’t seem to stop the thought from entering my mind, even though I’m enjoying every moment I can to the fullest.

Still, I try to keep those thoughts at bay as best as I can.

Overall though, I feel happy, satisfied with life and, in a way, complete. I feel that I can look back and see that the “racing line” I took throughout the years brought me exactly where I wished I would be. To a certain degree, life turned out to be even better than my wildest predictions, thanks to Laura.

What else can I say? Every other word seems superfluous.

I’m just going to take it all in, and save it for a rainy day. It will be a ray of sunlight, when the inevitable clouds will gather over my head.

But those days seem far away now:

Today, it’s sunny and warm.

Today, we can smile and celebrate.

Today, we live.
