you know that "do one thing every day that scares you" quote from eleanor roosevelt?
i think i know about that.
when you see your friend outside to whom you owe a phone call, you take a deep breath and go out and get into it.
you make plans with someone you miss.
you step in the middle and pick up your stepdaughter and hug her and let her cry.
you look someone right in the eyes.
you clean out the basement and look through boxes you've known are down there but haven't really wanted to reckon with. for nine years.
you tell yourself no.
you tell yourself yes.
and a whole lot of other stuff.
but i still don't fly.
now that scares me.
