living


Being open
Easy going
Taking a risk
Not living in a tiny protected bubble
Going out and exploring
Seeking adventure
Looking for the things that move me
Not afraid to try them
Taking the leap and going for it

I am so thankful I live this way
Willing to put myself out there
Experience the moment
Be present with where I am

If I did not have that in me
I never would have the experiences I have had
Seeing Mexico through the eyes of the people
Having my world open up at squam
Traveling to Brooklyn
Risking my heart and feeling the joy that comes with it
As well as the heart ache that can happen

If I was not open and willing
I never would have done any of these things
But here I am now
Exploring
Going on adventures
Riding my bike around 
Soaking in the beauty

The moments are here
To take the step forward
Take the risk
Take the leap
Grab the nervousness in the palm of my hands
Toss it up into the air
And go for it
