buh *gut punch*
good words sis – keep ’em coming!

Thank you so much for sharing this. I too have been thinking along the same exact lines and reading this made me feel like I’m not alone. You are brilliant and I’ve always admired your work. I can’t wait to see what you do next. xo arielle

This is amazing. I love that you shared this. I think we all struggle with a lot of the same fears. My biggest fear is failure and rejection, especially with business, it’s so easy to sit around and compare my work to others and feel like it will never reach the level I want it to. Then I use that as an excuse to hold back and not dive in the way I should. I definitely self sabotage a lot on that level. Thank you for posting this 🙂 Very inspiring, we all need to have a little more of “dammit let’s do this” attitude.

Love your vulnerability! Great post.

Always love what you post my friend. Inspiring!


these are some of my favorite posts of yours–the ones where you’re crazy honest. I find them encouraging. love your work and what you do. so good.

So, so needed this today. You’re awesome. Keep on doing whatcha do girl.


Great post, and so true for all of us! Fear is not only a liar, but a thief… such a little stinker! Thanks for the reminder to be brave and not let fear control us. I see a lot of fearlessness in the adventures you’ve taken lately. Go, girl, go! xoxo

I feel you! Especially reflecting on the loss of confidence and fearlessness that I discovered in myself in my post secondary years. Leaving school and joining the “real world” where everybody is NOT rooting for you, where its hard to find the people “on your team,” and where nobody notices your small successes takes its toll. I’ve had to fight through it this year – professionally and personally, as I’ve lost a lot of social confidence as well as confidence in my ability to do my creative work.

I’m feeling better though, and stronger for having worked through that stuff.

Also, that photo is stunning.
