The Ocean

It has been about 5 weeks since entering The Dunes.  I have taken the time to sharpen my skills and prepare for what is to be the most difficult journey yet: crossing The Ocean.  There have been ups and downs during my training in The Dunes, but I have learned from all of these experiences and my self-actualization has grown.  I have learned who I am as a competitor.  I can honestly say that I am in the best shape of my life.  Everything around my training has been meticulously crafted to my exact needs.  There are no doubts here.  "What ifs" are not in my vocabulary.  

Now all I need to do is walk up to The Ocean, look deep into the grey-blue murky abyss and tell it something as I dive deep into its infinity, "I have worked hard.  I have sacrificed, and I am ready."  If The Ocean decides to allow me to cross, good.  If it says no, even better.  For anything worth having, is worth fighting for.  I don't want this to be easy.  It will hurt for sure, but that will pass.  I need to remind myself of that when the pain is at its worse.  I want give every inch of my being to cross this ocean.  Only then will I learn the I willing to give everything to achieve my goal? 

And if it's not good enough, and The Ocean spits me back out, no matter.  I will come back again and again until I bridge the gap between this side and the other.  Until I have taken what I want.  

"It is for us to pray not for tasks equal to our powers, but for powers equal to our tasks, to go forward with a great desire forever beating at the door of our hearts as we travel toward our distant goal.." H.K.
