chugging along...

PRIME MEATS BAR PRIME MEATS PRIME MEATS MENU A LOW-HEELED-BOOT

some days i feel like i've done so very little. like i'm so far behind. and then i find myself in a neighborhood food haunt. and i look to my right at a girlfriend so good and kind that i think many must spend the whole of their life in search of such a good friend. and i look to my left, out the window, at a neighborhood for which i still swoon each time i get off the subway--a neighborhood i so deliciously and fortuitously get to call home. and then i look at the menu before me. and as i peruse the items, deciding what i want, not once--not even once, i say!--does the thought of calories or fat or any such nonsense enter into the-what-to-eat-for-lunch-decison-making-process. 

and all this happens with me in a pair of corduroy pants--that thing alone being a measure of much, much progress

and all these things add up in such a way that i think well, hell, i'm surely chugging along. slower than some, but i'm just getting started.

Sometimes I feel the same. Like I'm so far from where I thought I'd be at this age or wanted to be at this age, but then I take stock of how far I've come, and it's a long way.

i loved reading this... sometimes i feel the exact same way, and this was the perfect reminder that i need to be thankful for the things i DO have -- especially good people and a lovely place that i call home! <3

Trains always start chugging along slowly, but then once they get going, they're an unstoppable force. I feel it will be the same way with you :)

I love this! Good for you!

I similarly often feel like I haven't done enough or gotten to where I want to be yet. This is a good reminder for me.

Your gift of making anything and everything extravagantly beautiful with the written word is A.MAZ.ING.

I feel exactly the same - 27 years old and still not a clue what I'm doing x

I've waited along time to read some of your posts from the beginning of this year thoroughly, and I wanted to say two things

The work you have done to get to you, to be you is awesome. Some people will never know themselves that well or will never be brave enough to do that hard work. Some may never even consider needing to.

Secondly, yes to have a friend like you mention close at hand is something to be treasured.
