Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone. And do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering. - Ida Scott Taylor

To fear or not to fear.
The ultimate question,
that we all have to answer.
Do we fear love?
Do we fear embarrassment?
Do we fear failure?
But the answer to all these,
lies beneath the surface.
If you do not fear love,
You will find it.
If you do not fear embarrassment,
You will not be embarrassed.
If you do not fear faliure,
You will not fail.
The only question left,
Is if we fear,
fear itself.

I know this is kind of weird but I was feeling very philosophical today. :)
