This line from a Relient K's "Don't Blink" really resonates with me today - "I've been terrified of life for way too long."
It's funny how quickly our lives pass by. In the last few months, I was baptized and am now the member of a wonderful church, I speed painted live in front of a crowd, and went to see musicals and plays with loved ones.
I feel like my life is still just a dream sometimes because of all the amazing people I've met and all the opportunities I have had. Currently, I am working to be part of a healing arts program at a local hospital and to also be more active in the community by volunteering with Habitat for Humanity and other charities.
I was scared of a lot of things for a long time. Those invisible scripts in my head were overwhelming and full of "what ifs." The beauty of being human is that we are able to learn everyday, especially from our failures. Life is exceedingly malleable and it is what you make of it. Try something new today - and don't be terrified for too long.
