Growing up I was never the outgoing person, I honestly didn’t have a huge amount of friends. I was what you call an “introvert”. Very shy, didn’t say much and most people thought I was anti social. BUT I honestly think introverts aren’t really all about that, it’s not that we are completely shy, we just prefer to listen and observe. We also prefer to just hang out with one or two friends, other than a huge group of friends. We get mistaken a lot for other things. Now that I’m at an age where I’m a lot more mature than awhile back, I can still consider myself belonging in that introvert category, maybe not so much as before, but I still do love my alone time. As you grow you develop a lot of different talents/qualities/characteristics about yourself, maybe that you didn’t know you had. And that’s what happened to me. You start taking risks, you start doing things out of your comfort zone and before you know it, you do something you never imagined doing before. It really takes time to realize how much potential a person has, you just have to put yourself out there. What’s the worse that can happen? You won’t lose anything and I’m sure you’ll always gain something from it.
Every challenge, every obstacle that is put in ones path, is either a beneficial experience, one which can teach you that you are capable of so much, or a beneficial lesson, one that can also teach you what you can do better next time. At the end of everything you are always taught something, you never lose anything with trying to better yourself. And of course, you might be thinking its easier said than done, which is true, but it can happen, it really depends on what you want to achieve in life and accomplish and how bad you want it. I tell you this because it took me years until I realized this, I was very close minded before, didn’t want to get out of my shell, didn’t want to be center of attention (still don’t) and the biggest fear of all, not wanting to talk in public or having to relate to anything that had to with me going up infront of a group of people and just speak. It seriously might sound so silly to some people, but to me it was a GINORMOUS problem. If I ever had to do anything of that sort, I wouldn’t sleep, felt nauseous, my hands got cold, I would start shaking, it was just terrible. Words cannot even describe it. I’m happy to say I’m overcoming that, [sheesh I’m starting to sounds as if I had a drug problem or something], I have been doing a lot of things that I wouldn’t have imagined me doing 6 years back, but I have gotten a huge satisfaction knowing that it’s not as bad as I thought it would be, and that when you take risks in life and just do it, sometimes you just surprise yourself at how good you may even be.
Just like my title “wings are made to fly” I truly believe the concept behind it. I really think everyone is capable of amazing things, you just have to stop being fearful of many things, or as for me, failure. You have to start moving and doing the things you want to do, you get up and just do them, without thinking of them too much, all it takes is that one step. And that step could be the beginning of many great things.
