Here’s To Not Being Scared


Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”

Everyday we encounter situations that have a chance of scaring us. I mean we’re humans right, let alone women! Think about it, whether you’re in a boring ass relationship that your ready to leave, but too scared of what being single looks like or deserve a promotion at your job but you’re too scared to approach your boss about it? Shu, maybe your home girl looks crazy in the outfits she picks out but your too scared to tell her and hurt her feelings.

Everyday, we get tried.

Everyday, we get scared.

But you know what?

Push through girl!

There will always be a moment when you feel frightened, scared or even unsure. However, it’s your job to remind yourself everyday that you can do it and nothing can stop you. There is no fear strong enough to keep me from growing. My fears are my stairs to the top and I will make it!

So here’s to not being scared and shattering glass ceilings!
