Dear cherry blossom,

Thank you for being the definitive sign that spring is finally here. I wish you could stick around for longer, but instead I’ll appreciate you for the few fleeting weeks that you’re here – you’re the best part of spring by far.

Love

Sarah

Dear Jacqueline,

 Thanks for writing a year’s worth of Grace in Small Things, back when you were still blogging. You’re the reason I write mine, and I still love that you chose “the way writing the word ‘deleted’ feels like a rollercoaster” as one of yours.

Love

Sarah

Dear Cherry Coke,

Thanks for being just sickly enough that I can’t drink you every day without regretting it. It’s good to have boundaries and you help to enforce the knowledge that a little every now and again is better than too much.

Love

Sarah

On Fear, Bravery & Potential Stupidity

Posted by in A Little Conversation

It was one of my resolutions this year to face my fears. So it was with that in mind that I ended up signing up for a flying trapeze class with Q and eight of our friends. At the time it seemed far enough away for me to get a handle on it, but I don’t feel all that prepared and it’s tmrw.

To be honest, I’m pretty much terrified. Scared that I won’t be able to do it, that I’ll look stupid, that I’ll fall off. I’d really like to be a brave person, and I’d really like not to be scared of all this stupid shit (the dark, heights, parking, buzzy insects etc etc) but, er, I am. I’m aware that it’s counterproductive, often ungrounded and frequently silly, but I’m not sure how to stop myself from feeling fearful of these situations. Meditation? Prolonged exposure? Drugs? I have no idea.

So! Clearly I need help. Tips, advice, strategies. How do you go about changing from being scared to being brave? If anyone knows anything can you tell me? (Preferably before 6pm tmrw, thanks).

Ps. Watching this did not help. Any other suggestions?
