Rapunzel: “I’m afraid.”
Rapunzel: “I’ve been looking out the window for 18 years, dreaming about how it might feel like when those lights rise in the sky. What if its not everything I dreamed it would be?”
Flynn: “It will be.”
Rapunzel: “What if it is? What do I do then?”
Flynn: “Well that’s the good part I guess. You get to go find a new dream.”
There’ll come a time in life where you’ll have to make a decision for yourself.
It’ll be big. It’ll affect you the most. And you cannot undo it.
Worst part: You’ll be running on a clock.
After debating with yourself, you’ll make this relatively hasty decision only to have a feeling of impending doom minutes later assaulting your senses that you may just have made the biggest mistake of your life.
There’ll be a moment you want to run away from this decision.
There’ll be the moment you literally have to convince yourself you’ve made the right choice.
There’ll be the “Oh-my-bitter-gourd-in-heaven-what-the-****-did-I-just-do” moment.
It doesn’t matter how much you’ve thought it through, there’ll be that one moment of doubt. Followed by self-loathing. And then possibly suicidal thoughts.
The people around you will think it’s the dumbest thing you’ve ever done. To-date, at least.
And the One you need most will seem quietly indifferent to your decision
even though you’ve prayed, fasted and sacrificed lambs for an answer.
This decision will be the best decision you ever make in your life.

Student : “Doesn’t being scared let you know you’re onto something important?”
Ted Mosby: “Yeah, I mean, if you’re not scared, you’re not taking a chance, and if you’re not taking a chance, then, what the hell are you doing? Right?

Note to self: Take a chance with risk.
Thinking of: How watching Rapunzel the second time around was better than the first and how I’m not enjoying this feeling of uncertainty, fear and doubt.
