Dreams come true a little too late when you're not living in the world of happily ever after, so when they do, it's a bittersweet taste. Laughable; wistful.
Remember when that was everything I wanted? This would have meant the world to me two years ago. And now - now that it's happened - it's just a funny story to tell.
But that's okay. Life's all about timing. And this time it's for the better - I won't need hindsight to explain this one down the road.
