Just because I’m in the race,

doesn’t mean I’m fully ready.

Just because I’m shaking,

doesn’t mean that I’m not steady.

Have you ever felt worried and excited at the same time?  Have you ever had your feelings hurt but forgiven someone anyway? Have you ever thought there was more than one right answer to a question?  That’s because contradictions are all around us. And they make us who we are.
