To Dream

Dreaming is easy.

Attainable in the mind.

It's terrifying to wonder if those dreams will remain thoughts.

Swimming in my head are the insecurities I fought everyday. 

I ventured into acting through a class with hope.

Fearful but intensely curious I fought myself through. 

Fearful of being vulnerable, being seen, being myself. 

I opened up in a way I never imagined. 

It started with choosing to try. 

To try to chase a dream inspite of my fears. 

To break out of a shell I created to protect me.

To leave behind my insecurities.

To get out of my own way.

I am free to pursue my dream now.

Nothing no longer stops me.

I am me, I am an actress, and I am free.
