Is there something that you desperately want to pursue? Maybe it's a passion for something that you're constantly fighting to suppress, and yet it's all you ever think about. For the past year, I had been trying so hard to not rock the boat. To just live a "normal" life, whatever that is. To reach a comfort space where I could finally find a healthy routine where things would finally feel "normal"; once again, I have no clue what that means and no clue what I was reaching for. Well, recently I discovered that everything that I've been doing for the past year has been extremely controlled by fear. I realized that I had been so afraid, to the point of not even wanting to admit that there's so many things that I'm passionate about and that I want to try out. Fear had me paralyzed in a space where I couldn't even bring myself to admit that I was letting go of my passions and my dreams to live a steady life. I don't consider myself a risk taker, but I wasn't happy with myself. I was putting myself, my dreamns, and my passions in a box. I was telling myself that I couldn't ask for more. I'm in this new season of finding my courage. I'm not going to lie, it's been hard. There's been moments where I put myself out there and speak up and then get turned down immediately. Does it hurt? Heck yeah! The difference is that I'm not going to allow fear to control my actions this time. Now, let me ask you: what has been stopping you? Why haven't you started pursuing your dreams? Have you been turning off that voice in your head that tells you to chase after your passions?
