Thank You Thursday: Jessica

For my first ever "Thank You Thursday," I've decided to thank none other than my sister, and best friend, Jessica.

The bond between Jess and I goes much deeper than being sisters. Even if we weren't related and we were to meet on the streets, I'm sure she would still be a fascinating soul---but, of course, I'm biased.

We're completely different, yet so much the same. While Jess has more of an adventurous streak, I'm very careful and cautious. Don't take it the wrong way. It's not as if Jess is constantly seeking danger, it's just that every now and then, she likes to feel that adrenaline rush that reminds her of the natural human instinct within us that we all seem to have grown so far from. Me? Well, I'm fine sitting on the sidelines and feeling an adrenaline rush each time I think something bad may happen. It never usually does.

Jess once brought it to my attention how careful I am. She told me that you're not living unless you break the rules every now and then. It definitely made me reevaluate my lack of rebellion that I didn't seem to have a problem expressing when I was 16-years-old. But of course, we all grow old and boring...or is it just me?

Anyway, the basis of what she taught me is that every now and then, it's healthy to stop standing outside the fire, and simply jump in without a second thought.

Nothing too reckless, though. ;)

So, Jess, I am thanking you for helping me see life from a different, more open perspective. Thanks for encouraging me to stop being such a worry-wart, and to do something a little exciting from time to time.

You da best, bish. Chizzle.
