April 12..morning baby.. Last night brought out some things I didn't know about you... I think it's important to discuss this even tho it might be uncomfortable.. I feel bad that I was not able to explain it better... I be thinking about you and look forward hearing from you soon... I love you!!!
"I've been thinking about taking chances, and how it's really just about overcoming your fears. Because the truth is, everytime you take a big risk in your life, no matter how it ends up, you're always glad you took it." ♡
I want to read this to myself every morning: "Look at you. You're young. You're scared. Why are you so scared? Stop being paralyzed. Stop swallowing your words. Stop caring about what other people think. Wear what you want. Say what you want. Listen to the music you want to listen to. Play it loud as fuck and dance to it. Go out for a drive at midnight and forget you have work the next day. Stop waiting for Friday. Live now. Do it now. Take risks. Tell secrets. This life is yours."
Dyer, Gregsen, & Christensen (2011) talk about taking risks in order to be innovative. Sometimes I don't take risks because I fall back on the whole "if it ain't broke don't fix is" mantra, but I need to remind myself to keep trying and look at risk-taking in different ways.
