Dried leaves and a full heart

I feel serene.
Do you know what that means to me? It means so much!
When I read the book "Wild" before my PCT trek I couldn't finish it. It made me sad because it reminded me of the things I knew weren't right in my life but which I was too scared to change. Reading about Sheryl Strayed (who I admire and who was my inspiration to hike the PCT), doing what she needed to do, mirrored to me my own disloyalty to myself.
I'm glad that now I feel loyal and true again, happy that I've made the decision I did, even though it may have been the hardest thing I've ever done.
It makes me feel free.
I can now finish the book with a full heart, knowing that I, too, did it.
