I think what you wrote was very appropriate, and sweet in an old-fashioned way, like how people wrote letters back in the days when we actually used pen and paper.

Go slowly, absorb it all, take risks when it feels right to do so. It doesn't matter how big or small the risks are - they still matter. I think you are doing great.
The world opens up... when you do.
