Run wild

There is no advice that parents can give their children, no information, no safety nets, no one to catch you, no how to video, no love more important than running wild into the world and standing proud in a moment of your own doing. 
Parents will cheer you on, caution you against, push against, and direct your learning. Ultimately it is all on us. We can learn how to use these tools and even unlearn some, but what counts, what makes a difference, is running wild into the world and standing proud in a moment of your own doing. 
Running wild takes an embrace; holding onto an arm, a ticket, a passport, an idea, and a sense of ‘skin on the table’ commitment. How you get to the moment of pride is not as important as the journey that it takes to get to that moment. That moment began as an idea that was as unshakeable as the feeling of running wild into the world and standing proud in a moment of your own doing. 
When running wild, there are often times nothing visible underneath you. This doesn’t mean that there isn’t, it only means we can’t see the future. There is no reassurance that the ground will not hurt when you eventually find it, but trust that it is there while running wild into the world standing proud in a moment of your own doing. 
The very nature of being human is connection, but we let ourselves down with negative talk that runs wild inside our heads. Never expect someone else to do more for you than yourself. Never let that stop you from running wild into the world standing proud in a moment of your own doing. 
No video of someone else’s experience can make up the pitfall of fear, excitement, adrenalin nerve fire shaking mess that owns this life, that makes us feel alive. No armchair traveler gambled and won they all played it safe and lost. My gamble is different than yours, but let your only arm chair be 36,000 feet riding high in the sky running wild into the world standing proud in a moment of your own doing. 
The entire experience is a practice. A practice of; jumping into, and through, twists, and inverted perspectives inside this sheltered fragile eggs shelled mind. There is a a crack of light illuminating the path that grows brighter by running wild into the world standing proud in a moment of your own doing. 
Love
