To blog is to be fearless. Fearless of what others will think, say and criticize you about. Arrianna stresses the need to grow, change your mind, express your views….and feel good about it.
“Fearlessness is not the absence of fear, its the mastery of fear,” Huffington states. It’s doing what you want to do, even though you are scared doing it.
I am often perceived as a fearless (bitchy) person. In fact, a male family member recently called me “evil.” I’m a direct, tell it like it is kind of person. Do I sometimes look back and struggle with what I have said, or expressed in public? Certainly. But I also look back with pride. Pride that I am not afraid to be who I am, take it or leave it.
This sounds harsh to some, in fact in business I’ve been criticized for it after making a statement “I don’t care what others think of me” to my boss. He sat me down and told me I needed to care what others thought of me, or in otherwords “play the game.” After continplating his advice, I circled back to my ingrained belief, which makes me who I am today.
If you spend your time trying to please everyone, they’ll eat you alive.
I think I’ll stick with my “fearless” style. I simply don’t know any other way to live. And as a mother of two, its my responsibility to do so.
As my dad always told me, “Hold your head up high, and walk in like you own the place.”I like it.
