Friday Frills



Courage is admitting that you’re afraid and facing that fear directly. 
It is being strong enough to ask for help and humble enough to accept it. 

Courage is standing up for what you believe in without worrying about the opinions of others. It’s following your own heart, living your own life and settling for nothing less than the best.

Courage is daring to take the first step, a big leap, or a different path. It’s attempting to do something that no one has done before and all others thought impossible. 

Courage is keeping heart in the face of disappointment & looking at defeat not as an end, but as a new beginning. It’s believing that things will ultimately get better even as they get worse.

Courage is being responsible for your own actions and admitting your own mistakes without placing the blame on others. It’s about not relying on others for your success, but on your own skills and efforts.

Courage is refusing to quit even when you are intimidated by impossibility. It’s choosing a goal, sticking with it, and finding solutions to the problems.

Courage is thinking big, aiming high, and shooting far. It’s taking a dream and doing anything, risking everything, and stopping at nothing to make it a reality.

Wow, that photo is stunning. And I love your words on courage. Sometimes I get discourages and my courage starts to waiver but then I have to remind myself that I cannot waiver.

Of course I'm all for the message of this post. Especially that courage doesn't mean that you aren't afraid of anything, it's that you're able to face your fears. But can I just say, that photo... GORGEOUS.

Have an amazing weekend, hon!!!;)

Mira said...

Wow that red dress looks hot! I'm such a coward but don't tell anyone. I throw a bee out a few days ago and I faced my fears. Should do it more often. Love this FF and wish you a happy Friday Sam :)

Oh, lovely post as usual, Sam! Courage can be hard to obtain and even harder to bring out within yourself. I feel like courage is mostly just being yourself and saying what you want, even if you're afraid of what someone else might think. :)

Lilli said...

Morning Sam! Hope your day is going well so far, thanks a bunch for your comment, it always put a smile on me!:) Today frills are more inspiring than usual, is a kind of reading that need. In every things we do, we always have to put courage, which doesnt mean being strong and powerful, but being wise enough to: pursue our goals standing up for them, even if it means to go against others; accept the things we did that then could have been big mistakes, learning the lesson to not repeat them and take on responsabilities for them; dream high because it is the driving for of our beeing on earth, a life without dreams and plans is totally empty. So, go on and just be brave!:) Happy Friday my dear, kisses! xo
