They say that you never truly develop unless you face what you fear. Because you can never truly know what you’re capable of unless you’re forced to deal with circumstances you never thought you could survive from. To allow yourself to get exposed to the risks you fear of taking.

It’s when you realise that you hide much more inside than even you yourself thought was possible. When you acknowledge that a person will only find their limits when they push themselves towards them. Or like Eleanor Roosevelt said, “you must do the thing you think you cannot do”. And just like the fact that you cannot grow unless you are willing to change, and sometimes even surpass the things you fear, there are certain circumstances – or even people – that bring out the best in you.

We all have emotions, abilities, potential, that is hidden, dormant, within, waiting for the right inspiration, time, person to surface, to be awakened and expressed. It’s how you grow and evolve into who you want to be and who you can be.

It’s how you become a better version of who you are.

22 December, 2012

Zepper-sunrise-over-the-niveous-city-of-bonnSo apparently, the world has not ended. At least not in the disastrous-end-of-the-world-all-time-catastrophe that everyone was expecting. So for the systems to be all up and running and this post to be online, and you to be reading it, means we’re all still here. And we still have to face the challenges that lie ahead.

All this worrying, agony and anxiety for what will happen come 21 December 2012, however, has worn me out! Do you know how many outfits I had to go through to find the right one? And I still don’t know if what I chose yesterday was appropriate for the end of the world… Then again, I think now it is time to take a vacation! I think you should too! After all, we did survive the end of the world…
