In order to learn the most important lessons of life, one must each day surmount a fear.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
I have a friend who’s stuck with a guy… They broke up this summer and have been going back and forth since then.
He’s an asshole, long story short.
Once again – LIVE LIFE. (I told her this too)
I told my best friend today: Taking a chance is what makes us feel alive. It’s like something scary: bungy jumping, sky diving (or to her – a ‘scary’ roller coaster), at first you’re scared – but once you’ve faced your fear, taken a chance and just done it… You feel amazing! You feel alive and on top of the world.
That’s how you should feel everyday (almost). You should face your fears. It makes you stronger, wiser and happier. Again, that rush of overcoming something you thought was impossible or something you feared… It’s just amazing. It’s freeing and satisfying.
