Life is strange when you finally figure out what you want to do with it.

Things are hard and they stay hard, but somehow, the effort you had to put into everything you did up until that point becomes a memory of how hard it was, and everything you do comes out of desire – out of passion – for your chosen life.

You look around... It’s a whole new world. Your perception has been aligned and you look at life with a new clarity. You shake your head - half in disbelief that you are finally here, doing what you always dreamed of and half because you just can't understand why you did it sooner.

Life takes on new meaning and every day for the rest of your life, you continue down the path of living out your dream.

I am speaking, of course, about raising Alpacas.
