"The hardest thing in life, is letting go of what you thought was real."
~ Author Unknown ~
What do I really want to do with the rest of my life? Live out loud. Suck the marrow out of life. To totally think about what new risk I'm going to take every day, to want to live in new situations all the time, to try new things (which means that I can't just do the old things), to risk making a mistake. Or mistakes. (Big ones!) To be rejected and live through it and realize it's not that big of a deal. To realize where I really am, without any fibs or guilt or rose-colored perceptions. And to realize, as I'm doing it, that I had been making mistakes and learning new things the whole time. To be free to fail. And to fail! And be okay with failing! And to embrace every breath-taking moment.
