I instantly liked the theme of day 18 of #marchmeetthemaker which is about mistakes made or lessons learnt. This quote by Dale Carnegie illustrates perfectly one of the things I've learnt so far. You see I'm prone to self-doubt and sometimes it means that I don't reach out to that potential client because I'm afraid I'm not good enough, I don't make that card for my Etsy shop because I'm afraid people won't like it and won't buy it, or I don't post that illustration here on Instagram because I'm afraid that you'll think I'm nuts and you'll decide to stay away from me and my content. The problem with inaction is that it only brings you further down the spiral of doubt and fear. Yes, taking action can be really scary at times but I've noticed that it's also always worth it. . So as I'm working on being better and more courageous everyday I encourage you to do the same! . What action are you gonna take today? . PS: In case you didn't know, last month I published a blog post about the 5 biggest mistakes I've made in my illustration career so far. See link in my bio or go to camillesland.wordpress.com to read all about them! . . . #bebraveeveryday#motivationmonday#handletteredquote#takeaction#youcandoit#icandoit#dontbeafraid#conqueryourfears#dontletfearstopyou#dalecarnegiequote#youarebraverthanyouthink
“Be relentless in the pursuit of your dreams.” . . New post on the blog about conquering your dreams and going after what you want. It’s more of a personal post about my own experiences and how hard work pays off. I hope that rather than sounding braggy, that it can resonate with anyone who is afraid to take the next leap. I hope whoever is reading this that you never feel “stuck”. If there’s something you want to achieve, go after it with all you’ve got and know that you can accomplish anything! I promise the struggle is worth the reward. . . #wellwithkell#workhard#hardworkpaysoffs#berelentless#conqueryourfears#taketheleap#trusttheprocess
When you see your bright future unfolding as each day passes by. . . I started working with an amazing business mindset coach last month and have noticed some significant changes in my life. . . Like so many of us I too let so much fear stop me from taking action and take a leap of faith to ultimately create the life I want. . . We let fear get in the way of our health, or businesses, our careers and even our dreams. Fear of failure, fear of what others think of ourselves or maybe even fearing success or for once being in great health. . . Fear is so far from being real and is just coming from our imaginations. Don't get me wrong. There are things that scare me. . . But by pushing forward and facing this fear you will meet success on the other side ✨. . . 📷 @ndouglasphotos . . #fearisnotreal#conqueryourfears#livecompassionately#growthmindset#gratitude#fitnesswomen#fitnesslifestyle
i promise this will be the last of this series but yes, with this bunch, there’s always room for dessert 🧁 🍨 🍮 in spite of a genuinely empacho (indigestion)-inducing spread. of course there will be the requisite salad to make us feel less guilty (admittedly me pretending to be healthy). and btw, my first time to finish an entire balut* (in tempura form)!! . . *balut, according to oxford living dictionaries, is “a fertilised duck egg 🥚 boiled and eaten in the shell whilst still warm, served as a delicacy in parts of (southeast) asia” @empacho.ph #empacho#indigestion#balut 🐣 #conqueryourfears#highschool#besties#foodporn#foodstagram

In the spirit of “community”, let's do an open post today. We can use this moment to uplift and encourage another person who may need a hand, or a listening ear, or a warm hug to keep moving forward❤️ Sometimes fear does not subside and you must *choose to* do it afraid. “It” can be anything and you should keep in mind, there are times when doing something afraid is your only option. I hope you can appreciate and receive what we are choosing to talk about. Feel free to share your own experiences in how you relate to facing your fears. Let's talk… Pregnancy/birth: Not until I became pregnant did I truly appreciate and understand the beauty in creating a life and what must happen to have a healthy pregnancy and baby. It's a delicate process and everyone's experience is different. I wanted a natural birth, no medicine. No this and no that… Until high blood pressure and an abnormal ultrasound called for an emergency C-section. Everything happened so fast that my fears surrounding birth (a C-section) were an afterthought. I did it! I delivered a bouncing baby boy, who although was preemie, was perfect in every way. “Be strong and courageous. He will never leave you nor forsake you”. Parenting: Since becoming a mother, I’ve developed an entirely new set of fears. As if I needed any more 😩 I think we all have secret fears in either who we hope to be as a parent, or who we hope our child/ren will be as adults. I assure you, you are not alone. The best advice that I could give is to be intentional, even when you are tired and hopeless, happy or content… Be present and give your all💕 Starting a business: After a year of planning, I decided to leave my Corporate position to start @lucylueorganics. I chose to leave a job that I once loved, for something that I wasn't sure would be all that I hoped for. But I did it in faith. “I learned that courage is not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it.
Worry less, smile more 👍 Accept criticism (working on it 🤦🏼♀️) . . Take responsibility 👌 Listen & love, don't hate 🚫 Embrace change with open arms 🌎 Just feel GOOD despite what's going on around you 🙌
The first time we tried to hike to Columbier I broke down in tears on the goat path. I’m afraid of heights and I just had a meltdown. Fortunately we had a plan B- a spa day at the Hotel Cristopher. The next year we hiked to Columbier and I didn’t have a meltdown and still had a spa day. Today- we hiked the goat path, swam, picnicked and read for most of the day. I still get a bit queasy on certain parts but the views and water are worth it. #columbier#stbart#stbarths#goatpath#hike#myviewtoday#worthit#conqueryourfears
Fears. When it comes to fears, I think it’s possible to divide them into two groups: physical (eg. hight, darkness, scary animals, etc.) and psychological (eg. being alone, failing, etc.) But if there’s one thing you shouldn’t do with fears is hide from them. Yes, I know they are scary - that’s why they’re called fears - but the more you hide from them, the scarier they become. So stop hiding. Face them and embrace them. This way you break the invisible “wall” and take away the power they have over you . Personally, I’m afraid of deep ocean, marine creatures and nasty insects. As for psychological fears, I don’t actually think I have any but then that’s probably a good indicator. And what are your fears that you want to overcome ? . . . ___________________________________________ #selflove#selfcare#health#edrecovery#anorexiarecovery#bodyimage#selfcare#selflove#youareloved#vegan#loveyourself#youareenough#positive#positivity#youarebeautiful#bopo#effyourbeautystandards#confidence#mentalhealth#recovery#mentalhealthawareness #fears#faceyourfears#overcomingfears#nofears#conqueryourfears#conqueringfears#
World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) is on March 21. On this day, people with Down syndrome and those who live and work with them throughout the world organize and participate in activities and events to raise public awareness and create a single global voice for advocating for the rights, inclusionand well being of people with Down syndrome. My daughter was born on the 3/3/2019. I have to admit, it is the happiest day in my entire life and the love I have for this little girl is beyond belief. Bailey has Down Syndrome. We found out on the 20 week scan and in that moment, I have to admit I was devastated. Now, my feelings are something entirely different, she is the most beautiful little thing I have ever seen and I am so happy to call her mine 👶😍❤️ I know that if you are going to be a new parent and you hear this diagnosis, it is not the end of the world, it is the beginning of a new chapter in your life and the reward of having her in our lives is far more than I could ever imagine. I love you little one 👶❤️ #downsyndromeday#itsonlyanextrachromosone#mylittlegirl#happybeyondbelief#proudparents#dontsufferinsilence#talk#learn#conqueryourfears
Here’s the (sad) truth: a lot of people are frickin’ soft. ‘Waaaaah. It doesn’t work I’m quitting!’ Go ahead. Quit on your dreams. But then again, if you quit so easily all you are is a dreamer aren’t you?
So a little #tbt; . . FEAR- this has been something I have dealt with my entire life. As @willsmith has said ' The best things in life are on the other side of fear' . . I couldn't agree more. Looking back at this photo, I remember the fear the anxiety I had! Myvheart in my mouth, sweaty palms, shallow breaths. I also distinctly remember the pure joy I felt when I literally rolled out of this plane. It is a feeling that words cannot aptly give it justice. I am in a very interesting time of my life where I am taking risks, and I am terrified. However I will never know what is on the other side if I don't take a jump of faith and maybe just maybe something amazing will happen. . . Do not let fear or anxiety run your life! Be BOLD, be BRAVE, be a BADASS!!!! -Love M . . #skydiving#takingrisks#conqueryourfears#bebold#bebrave#beabadass#equinox#equinoxtrainer
🙋🏻♀️3️⃣ RANDOM FACTS Let’s get straight to the point 👇 🏊🏼♀️ Open water Freaks - Me - Out! I 💛 swimming but getting tangled in seaweed and not being able to see the bottom just adds a whole new level of scariness! Hence the inflatable 🦢 on dry land 😂. ❗️So what does this mean ➡️ Enter the Rotto Swim in 2020 to conquer my fear ... ❓ 🍽 Cooking ... well it just confuses the hell out of me and I avoid it at all costs! Recipes baffle me and it wasn’t that long ago I was educated on the meaning of ‘simmering’. Me & Cooking - are not best friends! 💛 I Love Ironing!! There is just something so relaxing and therapeutic about ironing - don’t you think ❓I used to sit and watch my mum 👩🦳 iron as a kid and just fall to 😴. Although my husband 🙋🏻♂️ would beg to differ considering the current size of my ironing pile 😂 So I guess from this, I’m looking for volunteers to do a team Rotto swim in 2020, someone to cook for me each night and in return il do your ironing!! Deal❓❗️ #randomfacts
I believe everybody has dreams.⠀ • ⠀ Why is it that most people eventually give up their dreams, and justify and relentlessly defend right where they are at. And then begin to tear other peoples dreams down just because they didn’t have the courage to overcome their obstacles?⠀ • ⠀ What’s the point in doing nothing?⠀ • ⠀ NoExcuses you dream stealers. You can get this figured out.⠀ • ⠀ Get around some people advancing forward and conquering. You will quickly once again see your dreams and begin to advance.⠀ • ⠀ Dream Struggle Victory • #dreamchasers#dreamlife#strugglesoflife#everydaystruggle#victorylap#victoryday#conqueryourfears#conquerfear#conqueryourself
This is fine👉🏾 OK less fine👉🏾Ohw boy this was a mistake 👉🏾f##k f##k f##k👉🏾I didn't tell my family about this👉🏾nvm yeahhh! This is fun😂😅. I kept my cool right? ___ My biggest fear before the jump was, what if I poop my pants, so I cleared that out of the way, but I still thought it could happen; I mean this was new to me. Two things escalated my fear; firstly my friend @gee.carter went before me with ease, but he flipped backwards on his way down and I was like "is that suppose to happen"?. Secondly I looked down when I got to the edge and my instinct kicked in telling me this is a huge mistake😂🙆🏾♂️😅. When I jumped, I then realized it is not as scary as I had imagined it to be. The first scream was a reflex of the vulnerability you feel as soon as they let go off you and boy did I scream🤣. I went silent for a little bit taking in what was happening and realized it wasn't so extreme to a point of pooping my pants. I then resumed with my screaming and this time it was joyful; that I had done something I wouldn't normal do. It had my heart racing. People ask if I would still do it again, and I say "hell yeah". ______________ #bunjeejumping#jumping#adrenaline#adrenalinerush#zartravelnaires#zartravel#visitsouthafrica#mpumalanga#cliffjumping#adventuretime#adventure#outdoors#southafrica#conqueryourfears#conqueryourmind#explore # explorer #nature#naturelover#naturelovers
Overcoming fears is a massive part to fully experiencing travel and adventure. Get centered. Find your heart and know what you need to succeed. Eat foods that scare you. Go to heights that make you cringe. Open your eyes in the dark. Put Bali on the bucket list for tree house adventures.

My favorite part of CrossFit is definitely the community, but also doing things that never in my life thought that I could do. Enter bar muscle ups, I have never done one, but when the #crossfitopen2019 puts them in #19point4 you attempt the damn things. These have scared the shiz outta me for so long. 😬 I didn’t get one, but now I have never wanted to conquer a fear so bad. 👊🏼 • And back to my favorite part...look at how excited my cheering squad was?!? @lindsaymhaefner and @jessie_r_olson - my heart explodes just seeing your faces on these. 💗🙌🏼😘 • Oh, and @adam.b.savage - had so much fun sharing another workout with you! Your determination is nothing short of inspiring- and soon enough we will have those double unders and bar muscle ups. 🙌🏼 . . . @crossfit_attila #crossfitattila#attilawarriors#conqueryourfears#crossfitmom#fitmom#momswholift#community#crossfitcommunity#crossfitgirls#intheopen
You are only as ‘old’ as you feel right?!?! My first task as a 40 year old in the morning ... register for my first full marathon 🤪 Truth be told, the FULL marathon terrifies me 🙈! But guess what makes you stronger?!? 👊 Guess what pushes your limits? ❤️ Doing things that scare the sh#* out of you?!! 🥰. So why not do it when you turn 40?!?! 😉 It’s just a number right?!?! And I’m bringing it all back home ❤️. Because I’m doing it at the same race (Toronto Scotiabank Marathon) that I ran the HALF marathon in my mother’s memory #fucancer in 2016. But this race I will be running to raise awareness for albinism, the rare genetic disease that my sweet Baby J will have to navigate the rest of her life. Stay tuned for details on that xoxo * * * * * * #momofthreekids#runnermom#albinismawareness#fullmarathon#bucketlist✔️ #conqueryourfears#albinismisbeautiful#teachermommy
I’m not really sure what people are thinking about my Arbonne endeavor. I know in my head I say a lot of what I think people say like “she’s annoying”, “not another Arbonne post”, “it’s not going to work for her”, “how could she believe in something that doesn’t work”, “she’s wasting her time”, or “would she just stop already”. We all make up stories of what others may be thinking-most of the time it’s lending towards the negative. I want to choose to believe that my adventure in Arbonne is not any of those things. That people don’t see me doing this to get rich quick or rude off of others success (that’s not even possible). But the founder put it perfectly-THIS IS ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE not me. Honesty I did not want anything to do with it but I couldn’t ignore the call to serve in this way. To share clean and safe products and a business that provides freedom and hope. Everyday I have to jump over the hurdles of fear, doubt, and mostly the perceptions others might have of me. And to be totally real-I’ve been praying for years to stop worrying about what others think of me and I believe God laughed and said ok here do this and you’ll have the opportunity to put other people’s opinions aside daily whether they are real or not. So I’ve been in this company for four months now and I’m not going to quit-I’ve seen too much good come from it and lives changed because of it. And I’m MORE excited than ever for where it’s going and I absolutely cannot wait to meet those that want to join the team! Those that want to serve not sell. It’s been such a beautiful and inspiring experience and I just long for others to join the hurdle race because it is soooo worth it!• • • • #arbonne#arbonneindependentconsultant#socialnetworking#bettertogether#conqueryourfears#notaboutme#servingothers#servingnotselling#dreambigdreams#next90days#letsgo#faithoverfear
In @jennifergarveyberger's new book, Unlocking Leadership Mindtraps, she talks about the fallacy that we assume we are through our major period of growth, and that it will be much smoother sailing going forward. Yet decade after decade people continued to grow and shift much more than they thought they would. I used to be terrified of flying. I never flew much growing up (I can count those flights on my hands) and didn't have enough money to travel much until I started working at The Company. Even as I started to fly more often I found it terrifying. Then on one cross-country flight I was seated next to a former Air Force pilot. Noticing my angst he patiently explained turbulence and flying to me and then answered all my questions. That small intervention made a lasting impact on me. That's the thing -- the world is complex. And we humans are complex too! We might not remain as we are. It doesn't suit us to pigeonhole ourselves because we don't know who we are becoming! I don't worry about taking to the skies anymore. Actually I spend a non-trivial amount of time sleeping (those noise-canceling headphones are a dream). And as I head home today, I'm working to stay open about what other beliefs about myself are about to change-- about what else I'm becoming.
Oh full moon, how you pull at my insanity. How you create the darkness in these corners Grappling at my soft skin, digging deeper Yet even you haven't won the battle between light and dark. Darkness, you and I are old friends. I have seen your pitiful beauty For I have lived within your walls for lifetimes You're where I go, to find myself again. Your waters have pulled me under, Scratched blades to the brave, I've seen your snarling silver teeth Baring at my neck. Yet still I come back, time after time… I let you embrace me and encompass with night For no longer do I not fight you or fuel on your fright You can keep my demons, For your world is but a simple nothing, Compared to the beauty of my blinding light🖤🌕 #lightsouls#conqueryourfears#slayyourdemons#anxietywontwin#lovealwayswins#defeatthedarkness#fullmoonnight#selflove#loveanyway
