I was so insecure back in the day. I never did a thing because I was always playing it safe. Comparing my gift and skills to others and waiting for approval. It wasn’t until I was fed up with life passing me by that i began to wake up.⠀⠀

The day my eyes opened up to the fact that I was made for so much more. That’s when I started to take risks, and learned to do new things. I’m not joking when I say I went from being dumber than a door nail, to being one of the sharpest pencils in the pack. ⠀

I can’t even describe what it felt like to know there was a wealth of potential in me left to discover and use. That transformed my life, the way i saw myself and the people I hung around. That is the day I started living! The day I broke free from comparison and playing it safe. ⠀

Now years later I can tell you it was the best thing i ever did. Being alive and I mean truly alive is amazing.
