Courage is defined as “the ability to do something that frightens another.” Life will throw you an opportunity to be bold today. To love, to trust, and to dare. In my experience, we find the most joy in these moments. 

 

Kenya Raymer, aka @halfietruths in the Instagram world, has shared her life with us and millions of others, and her latest journey to grace her Instagram feed that warrants hilarious updates is: being a mother. 

As comical as she is, she remained candid during her difficult journey to become a mother and continues to do as she takes on motherhood. Like many other women, her journey hasn't been easy, but she's proceeded on and she has done so, and still does, with courage

"I don’t make new year resolutions, but I am committed to being the very best version of myself + with that in mind, I am going into 2018 shaking the fear that I will somehow lose myself in becoming a mother.

Instead, I will embrace the truth that the woman I was, is gone. She had to go. She wasn’t capable of the tasks at hand. A new version of me has emerged, to rise to the occasion + I’m certain she is magic in her own right. I’ve been mourning the old me + rightfully so, she was the shit! Good thing I have a ton of pictures to remember her + to show my daughter that you can have all things in life, just not at once. Now, it is time to be unafraid of who I am becoming.

Will I be able to spend Sunday mornings in bed looking at old pictures + soaking up the journey, like before? Yes, of course! Maybe not as long as before, but let’s be honest 2pm was excessive [edited]! Will I be able to get up + see the world, like before. Yes, of course! Maybe not as easily + as quick, especially right now, but it’s possible + possibly even better (who knows! she could travel well, right!😒😬😂) now that I get to share that world with my daughter. Will I be able to make last minute plans, throw on clothes + meet the girls for brunch on a random Saturday afternoon? No. No, probably not lol! But we don’t do that [Edited] anyways bc I’m an introvert, they all already have kids + they live too [edited] far. See, some things will stay the same!

My point is, I’m not going to live in this fear that I will lose myself in motherhood. Instead, I’m choosing to be excited about finding the new me in motherhood. I’m sure she is fantastic, has a great sense of mom-style, has a fat ass (hopefully I get to keep that) + will take this chapter of life by storm💚."

How beautiful is that? We have a choice in life. To choose to live in fear or to choose courage and diving into the unknown:

"My point is, I’m not going to live in this fear that I will lose myself in motherhood. Instead, I’m choosing to be excited about finding the new me in motherhood."

Cheers to Kenya and to #FarewellFear!

Beck Jackson: I Stopped Idolizing Other Women's Bodies And Learned To Love Mine

I went through a stage when I was 17 like most girls do at some point in their lives where I idolised other women’s bodies.⠀⠀⠀⠀

Miranda Kerr was someone I really looked up to, she seemed perfect to me - she is the exact same height as I am and I became so obsessed with her that I found her exact weight somewhere on the Internet and basically starved myself until I reached it. ⠀

A Sports Injury and The Climb To The Top
A Sports Injury and The Climb To The Top

From the day I injured myself I imagined myself climbing.. You are standing looking up at a mountain. It is higher than any other mountain you have ever seen before. The climb up there seems impossible. You cant even see the top because of the fog. It seems impossible. You keep looking up, wishing you could just fly up there. But you can´t fly. You don´t have wings or any type of balloon. You just have a heavy backbag, but you have no idea what´s in it or why it is so heavy. You start walking....
