I'm trying to think of a word for the feeling someone gets when they have been working towards achieving a dream, and they finally make it.
Example: Andrew has been working to be signed with the Yankees his whole life, and he finally makes it. What does he feel during his first game?
When they finally get to that stage and they're performing. It's like a feeling of freedom, exhilaration, gratefulness, fulfillment.. one word for it?
