Both the happiest and saddest day of my life so far.
Have you heard of ‘The Post Marathon Blues’ well it occurs when you work so hard for something and you just can’t wait to get there because the feeling is going to be great and it sure is, but then when it’s finished, that’s it. The marathon is over. Because we have had this in our lives all day everyday for so long, there’s now a void, a blank space. A sense of emptiness.
I felt it! For 6 months I raised money, ordered builders, panels, bricks, concrete. To build this school for these children. I shipped tonnes of books and equipment from all over the world.
On Christmas Day, The moment when I cut the ribbon to open the school, was the single most happiest moment of my life. But the hours that followed, were amongst the most sad I’ve ever felt.
Not to brush my teeth in the river water each morning, or to eat Dahl with the locals each night, or drink local tea at lunch time, to watch the children run to help out each day. It was a very very sad feeling indeed. To walk away is very difficult.
So how do we deal with the post marathon blues? We do it all again.
Get ready because I’m going back to Nepal in 2 weeks and I’m building another school. If you want to get involved. Get in touch !!! ❤️
