Fearlessness.

What is fear? Why does it creep up and capture you? When you’re succeeding, when you’re about to do something big, it tries to stop you. Fear is the precipice. It is the place you get to when you’ve walked familiarity and finally reached a new “territory.” It is ego pulling you back to safety. Threatened by the unknown.

I welcome fear, I do not divert it. It can be scary or thrilling. Fear when you’re about to do something great, fear when you’re trying something new. I am an explorer. An adventuress of the night, and the early mornings. I am brave because I have known fear.

Discovering the unknown, welcoming life, full of uncertainties, heartache, ineffable joy.

It’s all up to you. I want to die happy

And live forever.
