Face Everything And Rise

When faced with the unknown,
fear will occur
It will make you irrational
It will make you doubt yourself
It will paralyze you from taking action
and
it will justify excuses
Ultimately though,
fear is a choice
It’s not something we’re born with
but rather something learned through experience
To overcome it
we need to acknowledge it
by
accepting the failures,
accepting the hardships,
accepting the challenges
and
be willing to overcome it
by being steadfast and courageous
and facing everything
knowing that
if we give our utmost,
our very heart and soul
we’ll eventually rise

Be Who You Are

Your words may
not be the most
eloquent,
emotional,
humorous,
thought-provoking,
informative,
or
inspirational
but that does not mean
you should give up writing
The fact that you’re
making an attempt
to share yourself
despite being judged
makes you a devoted
artist to your craft
with the heart and spirit
of a true writer
So lift someone up
with your words
and
make it stand the test of time

Take Time To Reflect

Once in awhile,
as a writer,
take the time
to stop and take a moment
to know that
you connected with someone,
somewhere in this world,
with your words
chosen from
your heart,
mind,
and soul
Never give up
your passion for writing
and
share your story
with the world
because
your voice
needs to be told
