Big risks require big decisions, and usually, they are surrounded by big fears.
I had always done what was expected of me
Never deviating from the path
Consistently living in the expectations of others.
Living in the expectation of others is no way to live at all
afraid to let others down
afraid to be alone
afraid to fail
I was done and so I began
My heart led me to new lands
Thriving in liberation, living in love
My fears had held onto me for as long as they could
and now that I was in freefall I was determined to land on my feet
but I didn't
I struggled at first, crawling, clawing, climbing as I could
but I never stopped moving
and now I'm at the top of my own mountain - and from it, I can see the house that my fears fill.
