no fear.

I’ve reached the point in my life where I’m tired of being afraid. Afraid of what other people think. Afraid of wondering if they like me. Afraid of being my own person. Afraid of taking my time and making sure of what I want. Afraid of knowing what I want and owning it.

So I’m not going to do it anymore.

I am who I am, and I want what I want. And if I don’t know what that is, I don’t mind waiting until I figure it out. I’m done with right now.

To prove it, I painted three sample swatches on my wall this morning. After two weeks of numerous little tiny paint chips taped to said wall. After looking, and waiting, and examining, and waiting some more. Until I knew what I wanted. So today, the paint went on.

And you know what? I don’t like any of them (who knew there were so many colors of white???). But that’s okay. Because I know what I want. And I can wait. So, back for more paint chips….

*disclaimer: this post is about more than just a trivial paint decision. But I thought it was a valid representation of my intended meaning. Hey, I can be deep sometimes. Charming and philosophical. I’m a double threat!

Here’s to patience. And being you. And $3 paint samples. Cheers!

    I thought the all kind of looked the same, good to know they were! I am going to have to do this soon too. Good to know about the paint samples! Good luck finding a color!
