I started off this journey, very uncertain and apprehensive about what would happen but by the end of the three days, I was overwhelmed by the love, joy and happiness that filled the room. I don’t remember the last time I experienced such raw and genuine expressions of emotions from a group of people who were strangers just three days before.
No words can adequately express how thankful I am for this entire experience with this group of amazing individuals. Thank you for being a part of my journey of breaking through my indifferent and cold exterior and extending so much love and strength throughout the process. I am even more encouraged and blessed by each and every one of you who opened up and allowed me to be a part of your journey.
I thought that I was going into this alone but on hindsight, I recognise that I was never alone throughout the whole journey. On top of the people pictured above, Jean and Jie were cheering me on all the way and especially at times when I felt like giving up. My parents showed me love by asking me how I was doing and if you know my mum, she is never one to like discussing about feelings. Jens stayed up till 3am in the morning to talk to me and I don’t know what motivated him to do that but it meant a lot. And above all, God was with me each step of the way.
To all these people I have met, to my loved ones, to all my friends whom I had the chance to speak to post training, thank you for your time and your love. I cannot think of a better way to start off September:)
