My New Motto At The Age Of 26

"Once you become fearless, life becomes limitless."

My New Motto At The Age Of 26
Self Love Beauty

"Once you become fearless, life becomes limitless."

Living fearless is my new motto at 26. I could always say I have done what I wanted without fear, but that would be one of the biggest lies. There are some things I definitely fear in life and other times there are things I have not feared.

As I turned 26 in April, I have continued to learn more about myself; What I want, who I want to surround myself with and what my true passions are.

However, one thing continues to stand out, some things in life make me very fearful.

I wish I could explain why because sometimes in life I get past the fear quickly and in other moments I let fear be the one in charge.

So what does "Live Fearless" really mean? It means:

1. Not letting the past run your life

2. Not letting rejection scare you

3. Going after the guy or girl you want

4. Going after the job you have wanted

5. Quitting friendships, relationships, or the careers that are not making you happy

6. Traveling where you have been dreaming of, even if it means going along

7. Trying new fitness exercises and centers even if you are scared you won't do well the first time

8. Trying something new that you have been telling yourself you would do someday

9. Loving yourself every day even when you don't feel 100%

It means stop living in fear of the unknown. It means trying new things and not being afraid. It means having confidence in yourself that you will be alright.

We all have our own stories, our own issues but at the end of the day living fearless will continue to help you grow, succeed and the list goes on.

I promise you it will be worth it, I face the decision daily to let fear hold me back or continue to follow my dreams.

So what is holding you back? What are you trying to do differently to live the life you want?

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.
