You know, it’s funny how things pan out – the way you think you’re in control, super-composed and have an armour of steel to battle any situation. And then you’re given a wakeup call with a bucket of ice-cold water and realise that in reality you’re not much beneath all that steel.
I’m still shivering from that ice-cold shower, as I’m beginning to learn about myself. Like, really learn. You know, one of those types that leaves you chewing the end of your pencil when you really should be jotting down notes. Moments of staring into space as you think back to who you thought you were and ponder over the ‘you’ you’re discovering. Trials and tests do that do you… well,they’ve done that to me, and I’m grateful. Shivering, but humbled.
