Be Brazen For 2015!


Instead of making a list of goals for the new year, I'm going to make a "motto" for the new year.

As you all know, I'm sort of obsessed with the movie Strictly Ballroom. Not only is it quirky, funny, adorable, and crazy romantic, it also has some really awesome messages.

One of my favorite lines in the movie is this...

"A life lived in fear is a life half-lived."

In Spanish...

"Vivir con miedo es como vivir a medias."


I really love this quote. I'm all about taking risks. Sometimes I try things that fail. Sometimes I try things that succeed. The thing is...following the trodden-down path is safe. Easy. Boring. It takes courage to try new things, experiment, play around, TRUST YOURSELF. Shake off the failures, dive back into the fray and try something different.

Here is my own quote for the new year...

"Forge your own path. Make your own destiny."
--Penny Watson


Sometimes our lives feel like a jungle, filled with vines and weeds and giant spiders and mosquitoes...



So what happens when you bushwhack through the foliage? What happens when you forge your own path? Maybe your path will look like this...



EMBRACE YOUR DESTINY!


Buckle up, 2015. It's gonna be a bumpy ride.

A bumpy ride indeed. Should I fasten my seatbelt? maybe not...
