Short Post: I am Not Afraid

Today, I will save all of you from all the lengthy and wordy posts that I have done for quite some time here. This is going to be short but I hope inspirational still.

Fear is something that hinders us from accomplishing what we really want in life. All the "what if's" and the "i'm scared" phrases present hurdles in life that stagnate our growth and development. Of course, all of us want to be accomplished and successful in life but not all of us will get it easily. Some may have gotten it faster and accomplished their goals easily but others will have to wait patiently and overcome many challenges before they reach their goals and fear is one of those many challenges. 



I have long been scared of many things and it has halted everything that I wanted to achieve in life. It is a scary world out there and I just want to protect myself from any failures. THIS is what I am most fearful about - FAILURE. I am afraid to fail at accomplishing my goals. I am afraid to fail my parents and eventually disappoint them. I am afraid to fail myself for all the expectations and high hopes that I have for my future.


But then, come to think of it, who doesn't experience failure, right? At some point in our lives we must fail in order for us to learn. We must fail in order for us to see things better. We must fail in order to correct what we have done wrong and so we know what to do the next time. Failing is a part of life and we must not be afraid of it. We must embrace it with open arms and tell it straight face that it wont bring our hopes and dreams down. With this, I leave you with high hopes about what the future has in store for me. 



Enjoy the rest of the Day! :)

  5. Failures help us become a better person and reminds us to do a better job next time. Yes, it can be scary (even I would have to admit to that) but in the end, what will matter is what we have learned through the whole process and how we never gave up.

    Oh, love the whole look btw. Very chic and feminine :)
