Best Night of Our Life

Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.

Mahatma Ghandhi

If we don’t give ourselves room to learn and grow from our mistakes, we limit ourselves from growth. I was so afraid to make mistakes and looking foolish for so long that it hindered me from both enjoying myself and enjoying the things I love. One day I woke up and I realized how afraid I was of everything. I still get scared a lot but that’s not the point. The first time I noticed how limited I was living was when I went to the fair with a young adult that I was mentoring. She went with all her friends and family and they played the fair games like this was their last day on earth and they WON! And when they won they all cheered each other on. It was great, They brought home fishies, stuffed animals, candy. It was wild. I had never enjoyed the fair in that way. That night among other things, lead to me waking up and realizing I wanted to go to the fair and play like it was my last day on earth. That easily crossed over into my life. Don’t let being afraid to lose, keep you from having the best night of your life.

When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
