I always tell my students not to write cliches--that their words are more original and powerful than that of another. But somehow this one's truth cannot be captured another way: The Journey Has Just Begun. For the past month, everything I have worked towards has led me to this past weekend. "The end of the tunnel" to me was my Nashville trip. Work hard, finish this demo, go to Nashville I told myself. I never thought about what the Sunday night would feel like when I was back and my "day job" stared me in the face once again.
Nonetheless, I know what lies ahead of me. And I'm choosing to chase it anyways. I know it will be hard work. And I'm choosing to sacrifice anyways. I know I could fail. And I'm choosing to try anyways. Like a good friend recently told me, "It's what Martina would do!"
