head-first fearless || by petie.

at the beginning of this year, a lot of people seemed to have a "word" they adopted as their motto for 2013. 
i never made it official, but mine is fearless... 
fearless isn't just a word that taylor swift made popular with a catchy song and her blonde curls flying on an album cover. 
it's an idea. it's an attitude. it's a way of life. and it's how i want to be defined.
// pulling all-nighters just for fun. //
// dancing in a grocery store. //
// giving random people random hugs. //
// doing that crazy thing just to prove to yourself that you can do it. //
// saying "i love you." a lot. (and meaning it.) //
// loving God with your whole soul and doggone it telling everyone about it. //
// falling in love with something new. // 
i don't want to spend this year worrying about what people think of me 
or what they're saying behind my back. 
i just want to be me without apology.
and as for you...
be you.
don't be afraid of anything or anyone.
take life by the horns and say, "i've got this."
and with God for you, who can be against you?
so go for it.
dive into life head-first and fearless.
what are ways you live fearlessly?
the name is petie. i blog over at all things bright and beautiful. i'm a country girl who has a soft spot for classic books, red lipstick, mumford & sons, british television (or british things in general), and les miserables. i write all the time and could drink coffee in my sleep. my dreams are many, but my goal is solitary: to live this beautiful life God gave me for His full and complete glory. come and visit me, yes? coz i kinda love people. and food. food is da bomb dot com. cheers!
