Funding Process is a Bare Knuckle Thriller…
When asked how we’re feeling about our project going live…
The only comparison we can make, is it’s like strapping yourself in to the scariest roller coaster ride in the world, whilst blindfolded.
The inital feeling of excitement as the seat clicks on it’s ascent, is quickly replaced by fear when the pinnacle has been reached and you know there is no turning back! Even if you wanted to.
Whether it’s the rush of wind or stomach nausea that triggers your scream reflex, hurtling downwards at warp speed into unknown territory immediately turns euphoric whoop’s in to what if’s?
Fortunately we have your support, helping us through this ride. As alone the journey would be increasingly daunting.
To understand why we were screaming at a point where we should be whooping, we sought council from one of our influential freinds who said… ‘Full public exposure is scary, and ironically is precisely what this project is about’.
Nodding in agreement whilst disguising my need for elaboration bought me time to ask ‘In what sense?
‘Once mobile, NW will be able to reach more areas exposing more children to a previously unknown commodity of a mobile gymnasium. Providing a mechanism to help more children become active, can only be positive. Furthermore the courage it takes to try something new, is precisely the courage needed to achieve this. Therefore enjoy the ride’.
Articulately put, and immediately made me want to re wrtie previous posts as he captured the esscence of the project in one paragraph.
In summary, we are still screaming on the way down, however with your fantastic support, the courage to let go of the rails is building.
