Don’t be careful

“Don’t be careful. You could hurt yourself.” – Byron Katie

Challenges, risks, open hearts and fearlessness work in your favor. Don’t shy away from taking a leap of faith, even if it scares you. If you do take the plunge, you will never regret a day in your life.

Here’s to making life count.

Don’t Be Afraid!

I recently started taking improvisation comedy classes which might be the gutsiest thing I’ve done in a long time. Challenging yourself by pursuing novel and difficult situations leads to growth and tons of self discovery. The key is to learn how to recognize your own fears and ignore the potential for judgement from others. Once you rid yourself of that, anything can happen!

When I asked a friend for advice on how to deal with the fear of judgement or seeming silly and nervous on stage, he said:

“When you’re on stage, “they” are no longer important. You are. They’re simply watching.”

Use this as a mantra for your life. The opinions of others are as important as you make them. People are simply observers, by default. YOU are the performer and the artist. Don’t fear, be real and be passionate. Follow your heart and perform with everything you’ve got. Trust me, others will applaud you and follow your lead:)
