Powerful Beyond Measure


"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.."
----Coach Carter(2005)

I have decided what I want my blog to be about: challenging myself.

It's been my dream to be an author for years. I swore I would be published by the time I was 18.
I swore time and time again that I would exercise, learn to dance, take musical lessons and improve myself.
I'm now 20, soon 21 and I've barely even tried.
No more excuses.
Too long have I wallowed in laziness, self pity and indecision. From this day forward I will endeavour to spend every day, every hour and every minute doing my best in whatever I choose to do.

I will set goals and I will use this blog to taunt, motivate, humiliate, inspire and encourage myself until I achieve them.

I invite you to come along for the journey.
