Why not...

What is holding you back? what is stopping you from saying yes to the thing that you have hoped for yet cannot bring yourself to carry through?  What is preventing you from taking that big risk?

Usually, it is the fear of the unknown and the uncertainty of the impact taking that risk could have. In some cases it is because you don't want to disappoint the people you care about. I have always been ambitious and always wanted to work hard. I would have some of the experiences I have been fortunate to have, had I not taken the risks that provided them.

Recently though, I have been putting off taking risks, I have felt scared to move forward and yet at times can feel trapped. I think getting accustomed to being an adult is a lot harder than I anticipated when I was 15 and wanting to grow up. It took me a couple of months but I am slowly getting back to being the girl who has motivation and ambition and so far so good.

Does this seem familiar to you?

The reason I am writing this is because I want you to know it will be ok. If you ever feel like this then just take a step back from everything and clear your head. Prioritise what is important first and when you are ready get back out there slowly. Remind yourself of the opportunities that the risk could provide for you rather than focussing on the negatives.

Use things you enjoy to help you, your family, friends,  religion, music and books. These are all things that get me through life and will continue to do so :)

To lighten the mood, listen to this very cheesy yet inspirational song by Hilary Duff :)

Lots of love and have a good day xo
