Halfway To Fearless


Have I mentioned how originally when deciding that I was going to tat up my wrist, I was going to have the world "fearless" imprinted on my skin? I wanted something that was the opposite of what I am, but exactly what I want to be. For me, the word (and act of being) fearless is that. I love (and hate) the thought of doing something that scares the h-e-double hockey sticks out of me. Acting on the things that you truly have no idea what the outcome will be, but you know will be worth it because you simply did it...that's pretty great stuff right there. There is a lot to be said for people who overcome their fears, it's big deal stuff friends. Sometimes I don't think we acknowledge people enough for staring fear in the face and dominating the crap out of it. 

Anyhow, all of these thoughts started swarming around in my head when reading through a new blog adoration of mine, Halfway to Fearless


Beverly is the brains, heart, and soul behind the words and believe me, she does not disappoint. A mother at the young age of 16, she writes candidly about how having her son at such a young age has turned out to be the best thing that has ever happened to her. 


A close runner-up however is the 200 bottles of nail polish she has. I admire Beverly for opening up with her readers, not always having a filter, and for admitting to the fact that she won't carry anything but a Coach bag. We all have something to learn from somebody else. I am so thankful that Beverly is teaching me how to get halfway to fearless. 

Pay her a visit and then enter yourself to win $25 to Target from this gem of a lady. Two things that never get old: new friends and free money at the greatest store known to mankind.

  2. I definitely could use being more fearless! I would probably rate myself a 2/10 ha ha!

  3. It depends on what I am doing...planning an event or being in charge, I'd say a 7 or 8. Making a decision about my own life....a very weak 3. It's crazy the things that we have no fear in doing versus what can cripple our thoughts. Loving Beverly's blog - thanks for sharing!

  7. I LOVE her blog! It totally depends. I am DESPERATELY afraid of heights. I love roller coaster. I have literally cried tears while waiting in a line that is on one of those staircases made out of metal that you can see the ground through. I have been on the ride that takes you up with 2 or 3 people where you pull the ripcord and fly back and forth (I will NEVER do it again though). I have general anxiety about lots of things. But someone when I make up my mind to just do them, I do them. I am fearful of losing the people I love so I am desperately a 0 there. But when doing stuff I don't want to do I will do it anyway. I'll say a 5 to make it an average.

  9. I'd like to think I am pretty fearless, everyday life? 9.5... big decisions... 7.5 =]

  10. Oh man it all depends on what the situation is...outdoor adventures I would say I'm an 8...talking to new people I would say I'm a 3...I am really bad at talking to people :) Stupid introverted personality :)

  11. I think I'm about an 8. Thinks scare me, but for the most part, I do them anyway! I like adventures, and what's a little adventure without some courage right?

  12. i'd say im only a 3 or 4! im pretty much a chicken!

  13. Ehhhhh...I wish I could say I was above a 5, but I think realistically I'm just that, a 5. There are definitely some things I wish I would just do, but always find myself too afraid. Maybe I can work on becoming fearless, too.

  14. I am probably an 8-8.5 ( doesn't mean I am not afraid but I still put it out there and go for it) It's like the roller coaster, you go on the ride but it does not mean your gut isn't doing flips as you are waiting and you may close your eyes for a second but I think the action of going on is what makes you fearless.

  15. I'm probably a 5. I've gotten a little better as I've gotten older but still have room to grow!

  16. How did you get so good at promoting other bloggers? It's amazing.

  17. I wish I was more fearless - i'd say i'm a 4? Shameful :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I would probably give myself a 6. My number has definitely increased, but it could definitely be more.

  19. On a scale of 1 to fearless, I'm probably at the sleeping robot doll in Monster's Inc. And not to concern you, but my husband's the same way. We'd be the first to go in a zombie apocalypse. Haha

  20. From 1 to Taylor Swift I'd say I'm about 7 on the Fearless scale. I save up for when I need it :) glad I started following along with your posts and tweets--I've really enjoyed them!

  21. 6-ish...working on getting to at least a 9!

    ReplyDelete
  22. It all depends on what I'm facing... if there is a spider on the other end of this I'd go with a 2, maybe a high 1.
    But if it's concerning other aspects of life I'd like to think I range from a 5 to a 7? Really specific I know, perhaps I fear specifics....

  23. In my mind I'm a solid 8... in reality, I'm probably about a 4. Thanks for the info on her blog... just started following and I love it!!

  24. I would say about a 7! Thanks for the giveaway!

  25. I am such a chicken :/ I am much more on the fearFULL side rather than fearless. I am a work in progress for sure... I'd say I'm only a 4, maybe 5.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I think an eight....well I hope so anyways. :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. somewhere around a 3 or 4. I can be blunt but that is usually by mistake, and I have all kinds of anxiety about stupid things.

    ReplyDelete
  28. So...have we all heard what this woman did with her blog and THEFT of other people's intellectual and creative property?! Thats not fearless at all. Its just THEFT.

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
