No one said life wasn’t scary.

It’s scary to take risks – to take chances. Things go wrong. We make mistakes. We mess it all up. But only by trying, only by failing can we figure out what doesn’t work. More more importantly though, it helps us figure out what DOES work. Mistakes help us figure out how we can do it better. What we like, what we don’t like. The more we fail, the faster we learn what NOT to do. What’s the thing you are scared of trying, but maybe want more than anything else in the world? If you don’t try, don’t move forward, you can guarantee you won’t get hurt, but you also guarantee you won’t get that  dream of yours either. Mistakes are OKAY. Failure is OKAY.

Jump. Your wings will come – I PROMISE. But be willing to tumble and flail about in the air for a while until they do. Because flying? Is AWESOME.
