Getting Off Defense

I recently played a blitz game (after reading Jeremy Silman's new book How to Reassess Your Chess 4th Edition) and I think it was really impressive because I managed to overcome my inherent defensiveness and push for the initiative. Although the gameplay itself wasn't that spectacular, the theme of ignoring your opponent's threats and making ones of your own is an instructive one.
