What's stopping you from living the life of your dreams?

What are you afraid of?  For most of us, our deepest fears require some soul-searching to uncover.  Uncertainty, disappointment, self criticism, loneliness, and emotional exposure are the fears that live within us and can rob us of day to day joy.  These fears keep us from living the life of our dreams.

"Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it.  Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.  Begin it now. ~ Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

The theme for Crazy Blonde Life this August is Boldness!  The magic of Boldness!  Is there something you want to do, that's been on your mind for a while but you just haven't found the courage to start?  What are you waiting for? 

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did.  So, throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor, catch the trade winds in you sails.  Explore.  Dream.  Discover." ~ H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

This month, I want to inspire you to be more daring in your life, to start that thing, whatever it is, that you want to start.  Simply do one thing you've never done before, but you've always wanted to do, or go somewhere you've never been.  Test the waters by starting small and you'll gain confidence.  The secret to being bold is to rediscover and embrace who you are.  Boldness comes from deep inside.  It's not so much about what you do, it's about knowing who you are.  If you don't know who you are, then boldness won't come easily.  Appreciate what makes you unique and begin to discover what makes you different.  Boldness is about overcoming your fears and taking action. Begin to identify and challenge the negative beliefs you have about yourself.

Being Fearless and Bold

Sooo, this month, I'm going to encourage you to try new foods, take good care of yourself, create opportunities in your life and ask for what you want.  What's the worst thing that can happen?  Put on those high heels, take a dance class, go to that new restaurant alone, do something unpredictable...do that thing that scares you, but you've always wanted to do!  Get to know yourself!

Tear down those walls, step unto the unknown magical space of authenticity and BE BOLD!

This month on Crazy Blonde Life, you can expect interviews with amazing entrepreneurs who followed their dreams, lots of inspiration for moving forward, recipes for the healthiest of foods to nourish body and soul, all the best new fashion for fall, and workouts that will tone your whole body!  This August, put your dreams on your daily to-do list, go beyond the fear of failure and let's make it the beginning of a fabulous new time in life!
