Facing My Fears + Catwalk/Streetwalk OTD

Ultimate Confidence


I made a pact with myself that every day, I will face my fears! 

Too many things I don’t do because I’m afraid that I won’t be accepted by You. Yes, You, the person who may see my photographs, the person who may hear my songs, the person who may watch my videos, read my thoughts, see my style, the person I probably have never met; You. I fear YOU.

That makes no sense what-so-ever. This is a process that’s requiring me to re-wire my thoughts. And instead of focusing on what other people might think as in a negative perspective, I’ve been working hard to just have fun and enjoy my life. My youth. My gift. And to stop tripping!

Time is so valuable. I never know what’s going to happen. When my life will end. What tomorrow holds. It’s a mystery. But what I have control over is how I spend my time. What I do each day. And how much fun I have while I am alive.

I will always be ugly, too skinny, too big, too short, too tall, too loud, too quiet, too deep, too shallow, too spiritual, too worldly, too this, too that, for SOMEONE. The question is, “Who cares?” Because, guess what? I will always be amazing to someone too. And just enough of everything I need to be to enjoy all that life has to offer me.

Each day that I face my fears, the power they have over me dies. I believe if I keep this up, and just believe in myself whole heartedly, and do everything I want to do to the maximum of my capability, and continue to spread love and joy to others through my creative expression, I will have everything I ever wanted and experience the best that life has to offer me.

I’m asking that if you read this, that you get a sheet of paper, or open up notes on your phone and write out what you’re afraid of. And then every day, do it. Do it some more. And do it even more. Until that thing has no weight. Until that thing becomes a piece of cake.

Life is for living. Not wishing. Not wondering. Not hoping. Just living and doing.

Thank you for reading. Do you have ideas on how to face fears? Are you afraid of anything and wish you had the courage to overcome it? Let me know!
