You know the line – between fear and anticipation, right before you enter a room of strangers, the moment between a safe plane and hurtling through the air, stepping up to a podium and tapping a mic, raising your hand and speaking your mind, singing a song you wrote in public for the first time, telling someone how much they mean to you, jumping into a cold pool in August, negotiating for the first time, finally deciding to pursue a precarious path.

In the words of my Mum, don’t make decisions out of fear. Ride that line.
