Out of Character
Sometimes you just gotta do something out of the ordinary. You've gotta do something outside of your comfort zone.
For me, that's a lot of somethings.
On Saturday night, it was blowing on fire with cornstarch. Nearly everyone I was with was doing it. I didn't want to seem boring, but I also didn't want to do it. So I sat away from everyone and watched. And watched. And watched. And then I thought, "What would Lexi do?" What would Lexi, my hip older sister, do, if she were the one here instead of me? So before I could talk myself out of it, I abruptly stood up and said, "I'm gonna do it!"
And this is what happened:
It was one of the two biggest flames of the night! I was pretty impressed with myself. My heart was gearing up toward top-beating speed, but I blew before I knew what was happening.
And sometimes, that's how life works, I guess. Just go before you know what's happening . . .
Thing I'm thankful for: warm Spring nights
