Nothing to Fear . . .

I have a really awesome friend, who loves to go for things, try something new and scary, and seems to on the surface never worry about it.  I give her credit and wish I could be so bold, I do try with a great deal of trepidation to step out of the “box,” as she has so kindly put it, and just try.  I guess it is what makes us unique, she is the one who can go for that difficult thing, or so it seems to me, and I like to stick with the game plan.  Spicing it up is not really part of my repertoire and I don’t really feel successful when I try to accomplish the lofty goals I really would love to set.  I know failure is not necessarily a bad thing, it can have its positive and life-affirming impact in the end, so they tell me.  Failure doesn’t really scare me so much, to be honest, I just like kind of knowing a head of time if there is even the slightest chance for success and if I can’t say there is, I say, ah, why go for it.  Sitting here on a Saturday night I think to myself, why am I blogging about this, haha.  Quite philosophical silly of me and  I wax poetic as if anyone really cares about my little take on life and very important regular matters.

  1. You know… there is more to life then just being successful… Besides, who are you trying to be successful for? I mean, why do people even try to do things only to prove to others what all they really can achieve? I myself don't ever do anything because I plan to be successful. I do things because I want to. Because they interest me. And whether or not I succeed at them doesn't matter. Why? because I did what I wanted and if i failed, then I tell myself, it just wan't in the cards for me and I move onto the next silly thing that interests me.:)
