Don't be afraid.

Don't be afraid to sing.
Don't be afraid to dance.
Don't be afraid to speak.
Don't be afraid to listen.
Don't be afraid to learn.
Don't be afraid to run.
Don't be afraid to read.
Don't be afraid to write.
Don't be afraid to look back on your past. Learn from your mistakes.
Don't be afraid to forge your future. Only you can do it.
Don't be afraid to be there for somebody. They may have nobody else.
Don't be afraid to make a choice for you. It's okay to be selfish sometimes.
Don't be afraid to walk in the rain. It can cheer anyone up.
Don't be afraid to do something crazy. Step outside of your comfort zone.
Don't be afraid to say what's on your mind. Your opinion matters.
Don't be afraid to pour your heart out. Everyone needs to sometimes.
Don't be afraid to take a chance. With great risk, comes great reward.
Don't be afraid to chase a dream. Accomplishment is the greatest feeling in the world.
Don't be afraid to do nothing. The world will keep on spinning.
Don't be afraid to be silent.
Don't be afraid to live.
Don't be afraid to die.

Sing. Dance. Speak. Listen. Learn. Run. Read. Write. Look back on your past. Forge your future. Be there for somebody. Make a choice for you. Walk in the rain. Do something crazy. Say what's on your mind. Pour your heart out. Take a chance. Chase a dream. Do nothing. Be silent. Live. Die.

But most of all...

Don't be afraid.

Thank you!
