What Really Scares Me

by Olivia Barker

I believe in taking chances, putting myself out there and being scared! Moving to a new state not knowing a single person (twice), joining a kickball league with hundreds of strangers and taking chances for great opportunities...that's what this girl is made of.

I love being a little scared because it makes me feel alive! I remember watching Poltergeist when I was little and literally not being able to sleep with the lights off for weeks, but I loved it. I'm terrified of heights, but I like looking down when I'm up high. I do things that make me uncomfortable on a regular basis, but I can't stop and I won't stop (ohhh I get you now Miley). Being "comfortable" is the scariest thing in the world to me. It's so much scarier than the adventures, the heights and the possibilities of rejection! The best part of a challenge is all the growth that comes from it. If you aren't being challenged, can you really be growing into your best self?

I want to be scared because that means I am taking chances to follow my dreams. Go out and get scared this week!
