Recently, a long-held goal of mine came to fruition.
I've worked a long time for this.
It is a happy moment to celebrate.
Horray! Okay... Now, let's get real.
I'm at the base of Everest. I've gained a ticket to entry (yay!). But now, there is brand new, large and gigantic mountain to climb. Because with each goal reached, there are 100 new ones to conquer.
(But that's what it's all about, isn't it?)
...Here I go!
