This morning I was catching up with a sweet friend I hadn't seen in awhile. We were talking about life. I made a comment about how something I'm dealing with is exciting, but honestly really scary too. Her response struck me. She said, "That feeling never really goes away. The older we get, but more used to it we are, but it's something that we will always experience."

   Recently I was reminded of a conversation a old friend and I had. He was telling me about something that happened to him and it ended with God saying " we don't make fear based decisions."

  Both conversations are ringing in my mind. A lot about life scares me. A lot about *my* life scares me, but I never want to be one to make my decisions based on fear. In the fight or flight frame of mind, flight usually means fear for me. I tend to run instead of sticking it out and putting in the work. So I'm challenging myself to not run. I'm challenging myself to try new things and be adventurous. I'm young. I have so much life to live, and I want to live it to the fullest.
