World cup anticipation - project me day 160

10 June 2010

I can't believe there's one more sleep until the long awaited kick-off of the world cup. I can't believe how I underestimated my own excitement and the response of the nation. On the other hand ... I did expect the response from the rest of the world ... shock!

This year is about me and making sure that I always live within my truth and making sure that I have the best fun that I can, no matter what obstacles are thrown in my way. Tonight, I'm blogging for the second time today because tomorrow I'll be consumed with sharing in the biggest moment that our nation has experienced with the world. That's really all there is about 'project me' ... the fact that I'm so freakin' proudly South African that it moves me to tears. That I see this Country through hopeful eyes and through a magnificent beauty and that's what makes me smile that I'm exactly where I should be.

I can't believe I'm going to be there and I don't know how to thank Greggie for spoiling me with this moment. I can only imagine that at some point during the?excitement?of day I will burst out crying, dramatically throw my arms around my best friend and thank him ... over and over again.

If I have butterflies and can't believe the anticipation that I'm feeling then I can't begin to imagine what it must feel like for anyone who's involved in bringing this huge event to the world. I can actually feel that I'm so excited that I'm battling to concentrate. I'm battling to do on anything but want to go to sleep so that I can wake up in the morning and put on layer upon layer of warm clothes with my South African Flag and my pride.

I've heard the good and seen the bad. I've expected the failures and rejoiced the successes and I've cried at the happy and laughed at the sad ... I'm ready to amidst the millions who hold their breath and wait to see if we can pull it off.
A whole lot of I's make a we ...

Ok, I'm babbling ... but that's just the super excitement and I'm trying to make sure that I don't have a purposeless blog. Who cares?
I don't care about anything else that I feel like I'm waiting for Christmas tomorrow, except Santa is dressed in bright yellow and shouting 'Ayoba'!!!!

One more sleep ...
