I know you're exhausted.
I know you want to scream, give up and throw in the towel.
BUT... YOU WILL STAY IN THE RING!
I know this year didn't turn out how you expected. And I know that events and people have been weighing you down.
But you're STUBBORN and you're made of the right stuff.
This year was NOTHING compared to what you've already endured.
Focus on the positives:
THE POSITIVES OF 2017 ARE ENDLESS!
Okay. You had to deal with some negatives:
You've had AMAZING years, since 2013 -- it was only a matter of time before life sent you a curve-ball.
I understand you don't want to be in Melbourne.
I understand you have a lot going on internally.
But you'll pull through. Because you ALWAYS have.
Only a few more months and you'll be back pounding the pavements of old blighty.
As your Irish ancestors would say:
"to be sure, to be sure".
