"My partner and I have lobbied for the right to marry for six of the last nine years we've been together. Now it's completely legal in New York and we're over the moon about it. We decided to get married. Except now I'm feeling scared."
I don't want to have trophies on my shelf showing how may home runs I hit. It's not about the ego validation or the fact that I "won the game" for the team. It's about believing in myself, believing in committing to doing whatever I want to do and then actually taking the action to do it.
