Like a relationship...
People don't see the tears in public, the sleepless nights, the "therapy",
The times the card bounces
And the daily longing for bare feet on the sand
But faith transcends doubt and fear
And faith is what keeps me moving forward
That and a painful determination that I Inherited from Mum

I think I spent the day before crying more than anything
Friday morning - my first video journal said it all. Anxiety had me numb. I could not see how I could do this
My slide show was terrible
- I mean so bad
I had hand notes , I couldn't speak without shaking.
Needless to say
It felt like a dream
No one was forcing me to go on
No one said I had to compete
But I wanted to do it, I had worked so hard to get there
and I think I had a lot to prove, not just to myself but as a symbol of the unconventional path I chose to walk...
But it's that law of the land
You just do it
You just keep going
Giving up is not an option
There is so much more to lose by "not doing"
Sitting in the "green room", becomes quite emotional- a group of people with common goals and shared emotions but very personal journeys
Yet after two days, we are a collective
And it's quite sad and surreal to think that we aren't doing it again
