In this moment, it's 3pm on the dot and I'm sitting in the lounge chair with a fire on the living room TV. Thanks YouTube for the makeshift coziness.
I swear, it works absolute wonders. And I'm not just saying that because the lounge chair is also right next to our radiator.
I can't believe I'm going to start my new career as a Software Engineer in two days - on Monday!
It seriously feels magic. I can't really articulate so well what that means but I seriously feel like this is only the beginning, like there is so, so much to learn and to do and to experience.
It's that bountiful abundance you always hear about, but to feel it in your chest - expanding, expanding, expanding to the point where it feels like it might burst. And yet that bursting wouldn't be a problem or a painful moment, but instead as though you'd just continue expanding into the universe around you.
No limitation. No border. No barrier.
You'd just keep going because that's how life is. And the more you fall in love with it, the more you continue to keep getting out of it. The days that turn into miracles and the moments where you might just feel the need to pinch yourself because it's all so... magical.
And it's only the beginning. We're in it for the long haul, and this is the start (or, better, the continuation) of a very beautiful journey.
P.S. I'm launching a new course - Crafting Your Come-Up - for early-career developers to set themselves apart along their coding journey!
