The Beautiful Mess

"It was all unknown to me then, as I sat on the white bench the day I finished my hike. Everything except the fact that I didn't have to know. That it was enough to trust what I'd done was true. To understand its meaning without yet being able to say precisely what it was, like all those lines from The Dream of a Common Language that had run through my nights and days. To believe that I didn't need to reach with my bare hands anymore. To know that seeing the fish beneath the surface of the water was enough. That it was everything. It was my life - like all lives, mysterious and irrevocable and sacred. So very close, so very present, so very belonging to me. 
How wild it was, to let it be."  
Cheryl Strayed, Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail
