I have been afraid my whole life.
Afraid of screwing up, afraid of trying and failing. Afraid of participating in life. There is so much to lose. So many people to let down. I've seen it. I've been let down. I never want anyone to be on the wrong side of my character.
Now I realize it doesn't matter. No matter how hard I try, I will let people down. They are likely to be those closest to me. Those I wish I could be flawless for. Ahhhhhh.
I went to Las Vegas this week. I have never gone. Afraid of my own capability to destroy my own life. Afraid of how my own darkness will interact with the penultimate "sin city."
How stupid was I? Foolish at best. I saw humanity at it's finest. I saw the height of expression. Fearlessness. The wild west. People being people. Everything I look for in life. Why did I wait so long?
Fear has kept me from growing into the being I am supposed to be.
I am free. Free to love. Free to rage. Free to be everything that this universe has made me to be. Free to ask you.
Please join me. Join the movement of the fearless.
We can change the world.
Shed fear and burden and move in love.
I love you.
