Living Fearless

The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not in fighting the old, but on building the new. - Socrates

I did something impulsive the other day. Something I'd wanted to do for fifteen years. I had my nose pierced. It's almost sad that it took so long because, looking back, the reasons I had that kept me from doing so seem insignificant now.

I was afraid. Afraid of regret. Afraid of what others would think of me. Afraid of how it might look. Afraid it would scar if I took the stud out.

This year I choose to be fearless. I would rather take the risk than regret never having done so. I realise that life ruled by the opinions of others would be a stunted one. Scars tell stories and are a part of life; my ugliest scars are the result of birthing two beautiful children.

May this year mark when I truly started to live out the meaning behind my name, "the Lord is my judge," and live out the legacy I leave when life is done. xo
