Dear Cowgirl,

Everyone is scared.

I swear.

I know you think the hot girl with the 30857037 likes on Instagram has no worries or issues – but she’s still human.

I know you think that the people from your past have it all together, are happy and totally “with it” but girl – everyone is trying, failing and trying again. Everyone is scared, worried about stuff we have no clue about and pretending everything is okay.


I’ll be honest because I have to be. Because you need to know that we all deal with the same stuff.

I’m terrified of my future. I’m taking a million huge risks right now, I have no clue if they will pan out – and I have a pair of Levi’s in a size I don’t fit in yet that are currently staring at me from my closet. I’m worried I’ve made bad choices, I’m proud of what I’ve done in life, but I want to make a difference in the world in a bigger way that I don’t have a clue how to accomplish.

But you know what is beautiful?

We all deal with the same insecurities, the same worries and the same second thoughts about absolutely everything. We all struggle with family, feelings and fears.

And we all have the same chances. We all have the same opportunities. The same possibilities.

We all have the same incredibly terrifying and execrating chances waiting for us.

Turn those fears into the future, and don’t let even one of those chances go.
