I want to live life in color.
I want to dive head first, feet last off the cliff and not be afraid of the fall.
One day I will be a risk taker. And today may very well be that day. Starting this blog is very difficult for me. The thought of sharing my life with people, let alone complete strangers, brings about waves of sheer panic. Do people care to know about my life? Am I interesting enough? Is my writing even good? Between a stomach full of knots making me feel as if I could pass out at any moment and irrational fears running through my head, I decided that I had to make a choice.
Option #1: Continue living my life the way I have for the past 24 years. Never step outside of my comfortable bubble. Keep myself at a distance from the rest of the world. Envy those around me who have such a passion and vigor for life. Or,
Option #2: Do something different. Stop letting fear control me. Stop being afraid to dream big. Be passionate about every single moment in my life.
The wimp in me is yelling “PICK THE FIRST ONE! IT’S SAFE!” And most of me wants to listen, wants to stay the way I am. But there is a faint and unfamiliar voice inside of me, urging me to close my eyes, take a deep breath and just jump.
This blog is my first blind leap of faith. And even if no one but myself ever reads these words I’m writing, I’ll still be all the more better because of it. As much as I want to pee my pants right now, I know this will be one unforgettable journey of growth and self-discovery. And I’m excited to see where it takes me.
Join me, if you dare. *insert evil laugh*
