23 Things That Scared Me But I Did Them Anyway...

Hey Everyone (: First of all, thank you for all the support on my blog and for the birthday wishes! Those mean a lot(: I can't believe I am 23, I feel old but at the same time, I'm still fairly young and have a lot of life to live.

I am really excited about this post, I have noticed that a lot of bloggers like to post lessons they have learned when it is their birthday. Which is cool, I have done that several times. That's why I thought I'd switch it up. So, in no particular order...

1. I told my crush of a good year and a half that I like him
2. I asked my crush to have lunch with me
3. I have sang to my crush
4. I have kissed a guy
5. I sang at my clubs Spring Fusion twice ( aka Talent show)
6. Shared an article I wrote about suicide on my personal instagram
7. Asked a good friend of mine to share her mental health story on my blog
8. I quit my CNA job applied for my current job not knowing if I would get hired.. ( I got hired obvi lol )
9. Started sharing some of my blogpost on facebook with friends
10.Shared my poetry on my blog
11. Made amends with a friend
12. Finished College
13. Shared a small bit of my testimony in front of my school club
14. Lived away from home for a year
15. Got through a very difficult class ( passed it!)
16. Every day striving for life
17. Ended a very toxic friendship
18. Went zip lining
19. Said yes to a photoshoot
20. Wearing my hair in an afro in public
21. Wearing shirts that make a statement for #BlackLivesMatter
22. Finding joy and being at peace with any season I am in
23. Trusting God's discipline and plan

Hope you enjoyed this post! If you did and you want to write one to, you definitely should! it is quite encouraging and allows you to see how resilient you really are.

Definitely let me know in the comments what is something you have done that put you out of your comfort zone a bit.

  1. How neat! I love the concept of sharing an accomplishment in the face of fear. You're absolutely right that it shows how resilient you are!

    1. Thank you for reading Michelle! It is definitely a list worth writing, especially in a society that makes us feel inadequate(:
