"I saw that my life was a vast glowing empty page and I could do anything I wanted."
Jack Kerouac said that. One thing I don't want, is for it to stay that way, as an empty page. My fear of failure, not even failure, just not meeting my own high exceptions has, on occasion kept me from filling that page.
Avoiding failure is a sorry excuse for a goal, here it's easy, just don't try anything. I'd like to take more risks, attempt to do things, in spite of being bad at them. I will create more opportunities to achieve my goals. I will practice the things I am not good at. I will fail, I will accept it, I will improve.
Not everything has to be a masterpiece, I keep telling myself.
