In the spirit of making muscles and getting stronger in 2017, fearlessness (or courage) takes effort, persistence, discomfort and consistency.
I’m learning so much about what fuels fear in the book I’m reading this month (I’ll be sharing a recap/review next Sunday so be sure to check back). The thing I’m trying most to remember is that fearlessness is not a destination. You don’t arrive at fearlessness and then never fear anything ever again. And when I talk about fears over here, I’m mostly talking about the fears of imperfection and not being good enough–because I know so many of us women have these struggles.
But the good news is, we can learn how to get better at coping with our fears of imperfection. We can become resilient, more aware of our triggers and smarter at responding to feelings of inadequacy. It just takes education, practice and exercising courage regularly.
I am overflowing with excitement to dive into these kinds of topics in the coming weeks and months. Along the way, I hope I can provide a clearer picture of the purpose and story behind Little Miss Fearless.
Now, for the question(s) of the day…
Do these kinds of topics interest you? Where do you go for inspiration to live a more confident, compassionate, connected life?
Thanks for reading.
What a handy quote to live by! I often let fear get the best of me. It’s great to see it as something physical that you can fight and exercise.

I have to constantly remind myself that I can get better at facing my fears. Life is funny that way. We are always falling down and learning how to pick ourselves back up again. XOX
