Face your fears. Learn from your mistakes.
Fast forward a year from now and you'll wonder why you were so afraid of failing.


This time next year I won’t remember how I was so afraid of failing.
I won’t recall all of the worries that kept my ship from ever sailing.

This is nothing more than passing pain.
I won’t repeat the same mistakes again.
Next time I’ll be one year wiser.

This time next year I’ll have forgotten these doubts that walk as my companions.
I won’t regret taking the wrong road; better than to never have begun.

To the sleeplessness, I will never miss you at all, but I promise I will learn from what you’ve taught.


No I won’t go down that road again.
I won’t repeat repeat repeat repeat repeat the same mistakes.
No I will be older and stronger and wiser.
