Doing Crazy Things
So, my new boss wanted to take me shooting because I have never shot a gun before. It was the coolest, craziest, and scariest thing I've ever done. I wish I had taken some pictures or a video or something of me actually shooting. I was shaking so bad and my adrenaline was pumping so hard that I barely remember it. I cannot really explain the way that I felt afterward. I wanted to go do everything; I felt indestructible. And I really liked that feeling.
It seems like life goes by so quickly from day to day when you're doing mundane tasks everyday. But, that one moment lasted forever. It is something to remember and re-lives on and on in my mind. I want more moments like that. I want to do more crazy things, do things that scare me, and do things that I would have never done a year ago.
Some goals that I would like to accomplish soon would be learning to drive stick, going dancing more often, and just generally being less scared of everyday tasks. I feel like my whole life I have been scared to do things, to feel emotions, and to enjoy those things. If I'm going to be stuck in Florida for the next year or so, I want to make the best of it and still live my best possible life, even if it means staying in Florida longer than expected...
There are so many ways to do things out of your comfort zone and I think I am finally ready to break out of it. I always keep to myself, when I go out with my friends I contain myself and don't have as much fun as I should because I am too worried about other people watching, or other people judging and it just needs to stop. I am ready to close the door on this part of my life and stop being so worried about everything and everyone. I know that I have anxiety and that's always going to be a huge problem, but I want to do more things that are going to help me overcome some of my irrational anxiety.
