It’s the eve of my 24th birthday.
I spent the night hanging out with my always-fun co-workers; I’m about to embark on an awesome new journey (more to come on that later); I have wonderful, loving friends; I met LeVar Burton today at work; the San Francisco Giants beat the Houston Astros 10 to 0; and SFGiants pitcher Matt Cain threw the 22nd perfect game in MLB history.
Life is great.
I’m on a quote kick lately. This song came up on my iPod this morning and it felt very appropriate.
It’s just a nice reminder that I came to San Francisco to do amazing things. And that I came to succeed, not fail.
I came to win, to fight, to conquer, to thrive
I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise
–Nikki Minaj and Rihanna
Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.
Such a lovely message wrapped up in a baseball metaphor. It’s one of my favorite quotes because it reminds me that a fear of failure isn’t a good enough reason to not try something at all.
