the dreaded f...

i have made a couple of big steps into the world these last couple of weeks. it doesn't matter what they were, but the lesson that i learned from them.

i know...i live in my head WAY too much :-) so here it is:

letting go of fear is freeing...

*insert your own personal interpretation here* it's quite a simple statement i agree, but one so often overlooked. think about the things you don't do because.

ex) i want to move, but what if _____?
i like him/her, but what if _____?
i want to do this/that, but what if ____?

we miss out on so very much by allowing those things to take precedence over our living. letting our fears run our lives. not to say we should all just run around like crazy crazes (come on now, youre being nit-picky), but i know for myself, there are definitely some things that are holding me back. i try to live life to the fullest i know how. if i never see those scary/unknown situations through, they would be just another one of those. how can that be truly living? you know what, even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let you down probably will. you will have your heart broken probably more than once. you'll fight with your best friend. you'll fail at more than one thing, more than once. so there. the secrets out and you know your future. now you can go out and LIVE because every chance passed, is a beautiful experience you'll never get back.

here i am trying.
