here’s an appropriate opening post:
im off to pulau tioman to learn diving! am incredibly nervous, anxious, but extremely excited too. perhaps this is what feeling alive feels like – fear mixed with anticipation.
just wanted to park this here before i go, to remind myself that, hey, there’s something to look forward to (and also somewhat dread), because i gave myself the opportunity. is this what anais nin was referring to when she wrote that
‘life shrinks or expands according to one’s courage’…?
hope everything goes well!
