This is a project about opening up to life and finding out who I am. I’ve been hiding in plain sight, in hopes of minimizing pain and discomfort, whether emotional, intellectual, or physical, and it’s time to re-engage and write my own story.
Every week for the next year, I will tackle one of my many fears and anxieties. I’ll strike up a conversation with a stranger (terrifying!), allow people to photograph me (I can do this!), and hold a frog in my hands (oh god).
I know I”ll be challenged, frustrated, and sometimes scared, but I’ve had enough of numbing myself to life’s experiences, so I’m going to embrace this project wholeheartedly.
I’m open to suggestions, so please send me your ideas, thoughts, and reactions!
