New things, new opportunities

Man standing on peakNew things -
stretching out of
my comfort zone,
energy bursting inside,
chest tight,
mind whirling and spinning.
It's a good thing -
trying new things,
stretching oneself.
It's easy to feel
those feelings of terror
and turn and walk away.
Put the new thing away.
Forget the new opportunity.
But I now know
that makes me feel bad.
So, instead -
I'll climb that dream
I'll ignore the fear
and make it happen.
I'll keep on moving
I won' stop now.
But, oh boy,
what a ride!
