Unleashing Your Inner Courage

The hustle and bustle of life can make us feel belittled, or even minuscule, but I am here to reassure you that you can reawaken your courageousness.

Unleashing Your Inner Courage

Courage: the choice and willingness to confront agony, pain, danger, uncertainty, or intimidation.

I find myself being easily spooked, self doubting, or hesitant in the midst of seeing uncertainty. I have always found it to be easier if I just sit back and allow life to pan out in front of me, but the truth is that I am missing out of many opportunities and lessons in life. It is easy to become complacent, allowing life to do as it pleases, but without us taking the proactive steps, we can not fully achieve our life's goals.

Often in times of fear or adversity is when we truly unlock our ability to be brave and face the task head on. When we overcome our challenges we not only get the courage we didn't realize we had, but we also prove to ourselves that we are capable of more than we could ever imagine. Sometimes the things we fear facing may seem minuscule, but always remember that even a small feat is still a feat.

There are times I wonder what am I actually capable of, or I wonder if I can actually do what I think I can. The truth of the matter is that you will never know unless you try. Even then, you have proved to yourself that you have mustered up the courage to at least attempt. If there is one thing that I will stand by its that you are always more capable of things than you really think. There have time where I doubted myself and my abilities, whether that be emotional, physically, or mentally, but the second I change my mindset into positivity then I start pushing myself.

Sometimes the hardest part of a situation is not the actual task, but actually telling yourself that you can do it in the first place. The courage is before facing the problem even comes, but once you hit the moment it comes then you see what exactly you can endure. I have learned over the years that God will never give you anything you can't handle, and so far in my life that has proven to be true. To think that the one true king is batting for me in my corner, that is the most encouragement I could ever ask for.

Never forget that you have a strength inside fo you that no one can touch, because it is your power. The next time you face a challenge, face it fearlessly and remember you can do anything you put your mind to. Believe in yourself and take life with stride. Take this as a daily mission to live courageously.

- Since my late teens, I have had wavy, unruly hair that is susceptible to frizz from heat damage.

- I've made a conscious effort to try and eliminate heat styling products from my hair regimen in order to do less damage in the form of split ends and hair loss.

- When I first tried Tineco's MODA ONE Smart Ionic Hair Dryer, I was immediately amazed by how quickly it dried my thick strands and how straight/sleek my hair was with minimal work.

Up to my late teen years, my thick, soft, silky straight hair was the envy of nearly everyone I encountered. I totally took it for granted till my hair began to evolve into being more wavy and unruly with random patches of wavy and straight hair.

I will preach this until the day I'm in the ground, nudes are an essential.

They are just as essential as toilet paper is right now and they have more power than just being a photo that's hidden on your iPhone. Nudes aren't just a way to turn on the guy/girl you've been hanging out with, but they can elicit a feeling of confidence and pure sexuality.
