It’s been 50 days since starting the Life Challenge. Fifty days of pain, tears, breakthroughs, realisations and joy. At the end of it all, I wonder how I’ll feel. I know I’m already dreading the last day. I know I’ll miss chatting to y’all. I know that I’ve made the most amazing journey of my whole life. And the destination was the place I had once known well – the place where I felt most fulfilled. The place where I am now.
Years ago, as a student at college, I was probably the happiest. With time, things changed; I changed. I became the person who wrote that letter to the Aquarius team. Every step of this journey has taken me back to the person I was then and helped me to bring her forward to my now.
Perhaps part of the dread is tied up with how close all of us have become. I would truly say that I’ve made some life-long friends. I have met amazing people who will inspire me every time I think of them and, I suspect, shake up my equilibrium every time I speak to them. Just what I need if you ask me! All I keep thinking is that I hope the next group of Challengers get as much out of it, if not more, than we all have.
