I said yes to something. Something big and terrifying and wonderful and potentially life-changing. I said yes despite fear, uncertainty, and a host of other feelings. And I’m still scared but the important thing is that I’m even more excited. Because inside of me I know it’s a good thing and it’s important and that for the first time I’m really putting myself out there to live up to the person I’ve always wanted to be. And that means something to me. Like I’m finally poking my head out of this little shell to feel the sun for the first time.
