#Fearless Quote of the Week: July 31-August 6

This week’s quote was chosen by Chelsie S., writer for (and owner of) #Fearless. See what it is and why she chose it below: “I think the our natural inclination as humans is to run away from what scares us. Why go towards something that is making us shake, tremble and cry? But, there is always a second option. There is flight, but there’s also fight. When faced with a struggle that seems to scare you, run to it, because it’s likely the option that is going to help you grow and achieve what you want in life. This quote has become something that I strive to live by, because for the longest time I would run from fear. But now? I look it in the face, and I walk to it. The funny thing about fear is as you run towards it, it shrinks and goes away. Be bold and be strong in the face of fear, and you’ll be surprised what the world will give back to you.” Do you want to be …

#Fearless Quote of the Week: July 24-July 30

This week’s quote was chosen by Chelsie S., writer for (and owner of) #Fearless. See what it is and why she chose it below: “This quote is something I feel like I need constant reminder of, especially in the realm of mental health. I think it’s easy to get caught up in the idea that we’re not moving fast enough, or not making enough progress, but every journey is different. You could take the tiniest steps, or spend several days contemplating each step, but as long as you keep pushing yourself towards your goal, and never give up, you’re doing all you can to help yourself. Don’t judge yourself based on how fast someone else recovered – your speed does not matter. Be gentle on yourself, you’re only human after all.” Do you want to be featured on #Fearless?

#Fearless Quote of the Week: July 10-16

This week’s quote was chosen by Chelsie S., writer for (and owner of) #Fearless. See what it is and why she chose it below: “When I look back on my life, this quote is the epitome of where I’ve come and it resonates with me far more than I ever intended. My life has drastically changed, yet I am stronger, more independent, more me, than I have ever been in my entire life. I find that each day I am changing, and I’m discovering a new part of myself that has been there all this time, yet been carefully hidden behind fear, anxiety and self doubt. I am not the same person I was a year ago, let alone a week ago, and for the first time in my life that doesn’t entirely scare me. Change is inevitable, so it might as well be for the better.” Do you want to be featured on #Fearless?

#Fearless Quote of the Week: July 3-July 9

This week’s quote was chosen by Chelsie S., writer for (and owner of) #Fearless. See what it is and why she chose it below: “This week is a very special week for me, so this quote is a bit more personal than it usually is. In just 4 days, I’ll have been with my husband, partner in crime and best friend for 10 years total. We started dating July 7, 2007, and it’s been the best 10 years of my life – so far. This quote, when I saw it, rang so true to me because when we started dating it was the first time in a very long time I felt truly comfortable and safe being myself. Now, at almost 10 years, this quote is even more true than it was back then. He has helped me discover myself, after a lifetime of being who I thought the world wanted me to be. He’s been by my side the entire journey, and I have nothing but gratitude and love to give him in return. …

#Fearless QOTW: June 12-June 18

This week’s QOTW was chosen by Chelsie S., owner of #Fearless. See why she chose it and what it is below: “This quote is one of those that just spoke to me when I saw it. When I look back on my life, I lived most of my days in a state of ‘I can’t do this because it’s too scary; too dangerous; too unknown.’ That kind of mindset meant I missed out on so many wonderful experiences, many of which I may never get again. It wasn’t until recently that I adopted a ‘I’d rather do it and regret it than never have tried at all’ kind of attitude. Since then, my entire world has changed. I’ve done so many new and exciting things, met so many people, and learned so much more about myself. Everything you could ever want for yourself is just one step beyond your comfort zone, but be careful: the moment you take that leap is the day you can never look back. You will be addicted to pushing your boundaries, …

#Fearless Quote of the Week: May 22-May 28

This week’s QOTW was chosen by Brittany L., a #Fearless community member. See why she chose it and what it is below: “I never fully understood this quote until I got older. Negative moments in one’s past have a way to coming back to haunt them years later. Over 10 years later, I still have times where my childhood abuse rears it’s ugly head and tries to destroy the amazing life I’ve built. It is in those moments that I choose to become stronger, wiser, and remember that my abuse does not define me. I’ve learned to forgive my abuser, not for him, but so I can move on. Running only prolongs the inevitable, and you will never move on if you run. It may be the hardest thing you every do (I know it was for me), but turning around to face your past and learn from it will be the most profound part of your life.” Do you want to be featured on #Fearless?

#Fearless Quote of the Week: May 1-May 7

This week’s QOTW was chosen by Chelsie S., owner of #Fearless. See why she chose it and what it is below: “There is so much that goes into recovery of any kind, but the biggest obstacle you will face is yourself. Healing cannot begin unless you are willing to confront what scares you. This quote speaks to me because it’s so easy to say ‘I want to get better!’ but so many people don’t know what getting better means. If you refuse to confront your struggles, you cannot heal and recovery, so this quote reminds me to always face my fears because progress can’t be made until I do.” Do you want to be featured on #Fearless?

#Fearless Quote of the Week: April 24-April 30

This week’s QOTW was chosen by Amy C., a #Fearless reader. See why she chose it and what it is below: “I chose the quote because I realized that I spend a lot of time worrying about the future, but I’m moving into it every second, and when it comes, the thing I was worrying about is usually predictably settled. It just helps me to keep perspective, and to remember that it’s easy to idealize the past and think that the situation you are in is just the worst. It’s not. It’s all we have, and it’s all going to be OK.” Thank you to Amy for submitting this wonderful quote! Do you want to be featured on #Fearless?
