Pinch me... I'm dreaming right?
When I received my email around 9pmish Thursday night to say I was in the top 20 I must say I lost my sh*t! Starting this journey back in April last year - getting up on stage with Michelle Bridges was a dream, something that I thought "hey, that would be nice" but never really ever expecting it to happen.
I had applied for the Lean and Strong category, and knew that my blog was popular but didn't actually know what category I was up for. So, when Mish started saying who the Blogger of the round was, "From SA, has done 3 rounds" - I thought woo, so far that sounds like me. But then she went on to say that I had made her laugh, made her cry and that my blog was a testimony to how inspirational I am (something like that - I was very excited by this stage so the memory is a bit vague.. hehe) Far out man!! One of the most inspirational women in the world has told me I am inspirational! Pinch me.. I am dreaming.
Blogging has given me a voice that I needed. The chance to help others by simply being me has taught me so much about myself. I have really enjoyed all the rounds of 12wbt but I have to say that this one (round 4 2012) has been simply amazing and although it is going to be hard to top it, I am going to keep on doing what I am doing and will continue trying to be the best version of myself. This round, I am going after that six pack!! I know it is in there - I am going to find it!! lol
Mish spoke about changing Australia, and the world and that we are a part of it. We are a part of it and it is a great feeling to know that we are all influencing others. I will keep this blog post short as I am so tired and will start blabbing soon. There are a few posts in me about last night, and to be honest my head is still reeling with it all.
I really want to take this moment to thank everyone who has supported my blog and I hope we can continue to connect while it evolves and like myself, becomes the best version of itself 😀
