I’m back 😀
Don’t you just love it when we have a JUGN event coming up? You can at least be sure that I will blog faithfully …at least 😉
Okay so straight to the matter at hand. I have so much planning to do
For Sunday so let me quickly share my thoughts with you today so I can move on to other things.
Did you ever get dared as a child?
You know those “I dare you. No I double dare you” kind of dares? If you did and you are anything like me, you always always rose to the occasion in response to personal pride.
Well, seems like you may need to key into some of that personal pride again. as I’m about to dare you again. Sorry did I say dare? I meant triple dare you…
I DARE YOU TO DREAM
I need you to stop for a moment and think. If all things were possible and all resources available to you what would you be? What would you do? If you didn’t believe every YOU CANT, YOU SHOULDN’T, IT’S NOT POSSIBLE you ever heard, who would you be today?
Its really not to late you know…
So this is the challenge, free your heart and mind and dream about how far you want to go and how great you want to be…WITHOUT WORRYING ABOUT HOW YOU WILL ACHIEVE IT. That’s the real challenge, expanding your mind sans fear
I DARE YOU TO LIVE
Okay so here’s the thing, if you can think it, you can do it. So I dare you to do what you need to do to make your dreams come true. I dare you to pay the price to have the best life you could possibly have.
I challenge you not to make excuses but to actually do something you have never done before. Try a new thing today. Something you’ve always been scared of doing and knock it off your bucket list 😉
I’ve never really been the adventurous type. Growing up I was a very shy child and because of my temperament blend I battled with fear a lot-fear of the dark, fear of public speaking, fear of large crowds, fear of dogs, fear of heights, fear of closed places, ,fear of flying, in fact just name it. It’s funny how all the things I was afraid of once I started confronting them, I discovered they were not so hard or scary and I’m totally free of them.
Some things I’d say just do them for the heck of it. Just cos you can. And YOU CAN actually so why not? Just go for it. Some of them are actually liberating. I remember my first power bike ride. I was really scared at first but I needed a ride home from church and my friend Gbolahan (yep the guitar one)
was willing to give me a ride on his bike from lekki to surulere. By the time we hit the road, my hair in the breeze, wind in my face, I felt like I was flying, like I was free. It was awesome.
Today I’m married to a biker
who takes me on eight hour rides. Imagine I didn’t get my induction…thanks Gbolahan 😉
So live! Live your life to the fullest!
And live the dream!!! I double dare you!
I DARE YOU TO FIGHT
I’m sure that as a human being you must have heard the words
YOU CAN NOT!!
IT IS IMPOSSIBLE!!!
at some point if not everyday. Or maybe you’ve heard YOU ARE A WOMEN AND WOMEN CANNOT…
My response to words like that is this beautiful picture of my baby sister…
I laugh. it’s rude to hear a joke and not laugh.
This is my challenge….once you hear, it has never been done by a woman…honey just put on your most daring red lipstick , add the word “YET” to the sentence then go out there and prove them wrong.
Being a woman doesn’t make you handicapped. It doesn’t mean you are disadvantaged…it’s actually an advantage because they don’t see the victory coming till it hits them in the face.
I dare you to go out there and fight and I dare you to go out there and win.
Don’t focus on the challenge…look to God and do it in some banging red lipstick
I dare you to be #FEMALEANDFEARLESS
I dare you…
I triple dare you
Now let me throw in one last challenge. So this is what you need to do. I have a few really special gifts from Annie’s Fashion store and 1206 by Gabby to give away. This is what you need to do.
#redlipstickchallenge – put on the most daring shade of red lipstick you can find, and hold up a #fearless poster or cardboard
#fearlesschallenge-with that same lipstick on, strike your most fearless pose.
Then put it up on our facebook page JUSTUSGIRLSNAIJA and email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
