Here's to the kids..

Passions? I have a few..
Holding them back had caused me to isolate myself, afraid of what other's perceptions or opinions would be.
What if I fail?
What if they hate me?
What if my friends turn away from me?
What if they are embarrassed by me?
What if they laugh when I walk away?
What if it's never the same again?
What if..?
I have escaped my shell, which has shocked some people. I stand up for who and what I care about, which has had the tendency to tick a few people off.
When it backfires, I struggle with crawling back in my safe shell. I have to remember that I don't do this just for me, or the initial reason.
It's for my daughters. They will (too soon) be grown women, and need to have the courage to stand for something as well.
So there are no more "What ifs"...
I have a tremendous amount of respect for the kids that know their passion and don't let something like popularity get in the way.
It took me over 35 years...
How long for you??
Big hugs~
