Why It's Hard






 Hello,

I am back in Copenhagen, home, Europe, college, etc. to be honest I'm not sure what to call it but I'm here and while I literally have barely been here for a week I sure have done enough to talk your ear off over wine for the next month. Instead of doing that I can summarize what has happened this past week into one anaphoric phrase and a phrase I am pocketing with me for the rest of 2018

Do not be afraid

Do not be afraid to be different, to do different

Do not be afraid of the unknown

Do no not be afraid to take chances

Do not be afraid to take a risk

Do not be afraid to honor your body, your mind, your intellect

Do not be afraid to work hard

Do not be afraid to relax

Do not be afraid to speak your truth

Do not be afraid to be alone

Do not be afraid to fear, to be vulnerable, to show doubt

Do not be afraid to laugh until your stomach hurts 

Do not be afraid to do what makes you happy

Do not be afraid to live

Do not be afraid to be human

To answer my own question it's hard because its life. Life is hard because each and every day is something new, some unknown left to be explored. The unknown is hard because it is just that ... unknown and after this past week here I have decided to fill my unknown by not being afraid it because I don't know what the f*ck is going to be inside it and I'm embracing it. The next step is creating the version of myself that I am proud to look at each night in the mirror while I'm brushing my teeth. I don't want to live my life wishing I had done something different, left my truth unspoken, missed an experience. I want to live - just live all of it every damn millisecond.

Ok that is all for now. Here I am - off on the next adventure. Not afraid.

Vi ses.
