These days I dare to take risks. Step into the unknown. Face off rejection in the face.
Conquer the doubt, the insecurities, the fear. Rise up despite gravity. Smile despite the hurt. Go forward while battling all that is in the past. Challenge myself . Grow, bloom, blossom. Like a bud in spring. Like a butterfly stepping out of its cocoon for the first time. Like a boy in his bar mitzvah, entering manhood. These days I do all that. Well, minus the bar mitzvah boy. These days I dare.
But with all the glamour daring represents, with it comes pressure. Stress. Difficulty.
Daring is not easy. Not at the least. That's why we so rarely and greatly use the term 'How dare you!?'
It is simply unfathomable for us to DARE.
In April 2020, while experiencing her first ever global pandemic, Tamar Pelzig pledged to write something every day, even if it's only a word, so she welcomed to the world a daily blog to keep her creative writing wheels rolling.
