To Fall or Fly is a piece I created to reflect on personal risk taking and the fear of failing. I am not a risk seeker by any means and am legit afraid of more things than I am not including heights, sharp objects, confined spaces, lack of control, the unknown, falling, the dark, spicy food, fast moving objects, Donald Trump, the list goes on. Many of these fears involve a temporary trigger induced anxiety or panic, but the one thing that usually causes me continual and relentless anxiety is the uncertainty of my future, where I belong, my career(s), and the fear I am not going to live up to my own expectations on the scale of "success" whatever that may mean. When facing choices that could have huge impacts on my future I find myself metaphorically walking a tight rope of indecision until I reach a point of imbalance that forces me to make a move. The choice to fall would symbolize giving up, rejection, or failure in some capacity while the choice to fly would mean I took a risk that is life changing scary but also rewarding and progressive. I don't know what direction I am meant to go in and can only hope that there is some existential wind or instinct guiding me in the right direction.
