I will close my eyes. Take a deep breath. And leap. Conscious. Deliberate. Aware. And yes... maybe scared.
To love fiercely without guarantees, To laugh at inappropriate times, To make my own timeline, To love the messy, chaotic gray instead of the clear black and white, To smile when I should be sternly serious, To only know what today will bring, To be unapologetically loud, To cry, To sleep until the afternoon, To be a voice for those who do not have one, To make my own expectations.
To hope. To believe.
