First hurdle cleared, still in one piece, nerves still burning with energy. However the energy is converting from pains of self doubt and fear to excitement and feelings of confidence and accomplishment. Confidence that if this step was achievable through all the doubt and second guessing then surely the steps to come are too. That knowledge that the fear of the unknown is conquerable and that the power to do so is locked inside it just has to be given a chance to shine, and shine it will. It will shine to light a new path, a path of new experiences, new discoveries and full of new learning. A path that will lead to a new and brighter life, a life full of new possibilities, and a new confidence.
