I ran into an acquaintance today who likes to suck the joy out of everyone he encounters…I refer to him as Death Eater (from the Harry Potter books). I used to let his words get to me, but I realized that its a waste of my time. Today I looked him in the eye and declared that at least I was trying, I was putting myself out there and giving it 100%. As I walked away, all I could think was that by being afraid to try, by holding back from going after what you love…well, then you’ll never get any thing you ever wanted. If you try however, you just might end up living out your greatest dreams.
