"Living Over Existing" is one of the quotes that I keep near my heart. Unlike most cheesy inspirational quotes I take this literally! For the entire 24 years of my life I felt like I just existed, I allowed myself to be stepped over and let opportunities pass by me all because of fear. I was uncomfortable with who I am because of what I thought people would say about me so I kept quiet. Then came along Eclectic Star,something I was truly passionate about something I did not want to destroy all because I was afraid to go after it. So I made a promise to myself that before I turned 25 I would begin to live. And that's exactly what I've been doing, took the leap of faith, began doing things outside of my comfort zone and took advantage of almost every opportunity possible. Nothing has ever made me happier. Living > Existing.
