Dreaming is easy.
Attainable in the mind.
It's terrifying to wonder if those dreams will remain thoughts.
Swimming in my head are the insecurities I fought everyday.
I ventured into acting through a class with hope.
Fearful but intensely curious I fought myself through.
Fearful of being vulnerable, being seen, being myself.
I opened up in a way I never imagined.
It started with choosing to try.
To try to chase a dream inspite of my fears.
To break out of a shell I created to protect me.
To leave behind my insecurities.
To get out of my own way.
I am free to pursue my dream now.
Nothing no longer stops me.
I am me, I am an actress, and I am free.
