Facing a wall of fear with a good sprinkling of support, courage, bravery and sheer bloody-mindedness……it is coming down brick by brick….

I reflected on the mosaic tiling in my kitchen this morning as I scrubbed it….it took ages to get the project finished and, as a good friend commented this week, it was just sheer bloody-mindedness that got it finished in the end as there was no way it was going to defeat me.

I spend a large part of my days dispensing advice to those in difficulty and facing challenges and have discovered lately that I am unable to take my own ‘warblings’ and apply them to my current wall of fear. Every single piece of advice, practical tip, humourous line e.g.: ‘Pants over tights and flick that cape….’ being my favourite…none have worked for me in the last few months. My friends have watched me dissolve frequently and felt quite helpless as I have floundered and struggled to gain my footing.

I am indebted to said friends and family for their love and support, for being there as I reached out for help……my love and appreciation coming back to you all in spades and probably a considerable amount of cooking!

For the special man who has started to pick me up and dust me down with a light touch and such humour – never refering to my wobbly moments…..thank you for this dance.

So facing this wall….I am knocking it down brick by brick…..no plan, no techniques, no secret tip, just sheer utter bloody-mindedness….having come this far I will not be defeated now.
