growing up?

fully embrace every moment

every experience

every leap of faith

keep yourself on your toes.  learn to love the butterflies in your stomach

grasp the fact that when you grow up… wait, that’s a myth. 

you never grow out of being nervous

but you do learn that nerves come with a key

to destiny

a door to opportunity

not scary…


these are good things -

stop being hard on yourself.  if other people see the real you,

you better start looking.
