I deliberately chose not to use the word Facing… instead welcome it in!
If we never faced a challenge we wouldn’t discover our learning edge- our potential or maybe even our purpose .
Today I am awake early because I’m excited, nervous and just plain AArgh! I am leading our new cast for the Playmaking festival that will be performed at The Swan In Stratford upon Avon.
Most of the children are from across our network of schools so I haven’t really got to know them yet- and I have three days to pull this off! Eek.
But I will rise… this will happen … and I know there will be challenges- maybe even a small tear, but I know that whatever happens we will pull together and make it happen .
Accept your anxieties as something we all know… embrace change , draw on the strength of those that support you- acknowledge the stumbles , persist, ask for help when you need it- and then discover what you are truly capable!
Le’s screw our courage to the sticking place and we’ll not fail! ( Shakespeare of course!)
