Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tip toe if you must, but take the step. What great words of wisdom! Taking that first step is always the hardest. Fear is a hindrance. Step past it.

ALWAYS be confident in your decisions. Live life for you. If someone doesn't like it i guess they don't have your best interest in mind. only you can make the decisions that will change your life into what you want it to be.
