From Being Fearful To Fearless
Okay, I admit it, I have arachnophobia. I can't stand spiders, well at least huntsmen anyway. They fill me up with a great deal amount of fear, and I very quickly distance myself from them as soon as possible. I'm always paranoid that one will be inside the car one day, and when I pull down the sun visor, all of a sudden this horrible eight legged cretan will fall into my lap, and pretty much give me a heart attack. I don't know how I would react, and I don't even want to think of it, to be honest. I don't know what it is about them, be it their size, or the fact they just randomly drop from the ceiling, or be it the size of their pincers, but I cannot stand them. I don't care how much people say that huntsmen are harmless, and I'm just overreacting, I ain't getting near them, thanks very much. That's definitely one thing I love about this house I am living in, I haven't seen a huntsman in the 10 years I have been here, touch wood. Fear is a common human emotion after all. We all have different fears in life, be it claustrophobia (fear of confined spaces), ophidiophobia (fear of snakes), acrophobia (fear of heights), trypanophobia (fear of needles), or whatever it may be. It's common to be scared of something. Have you ever heard of these three phobias before though; periculophobia, metathesiophobia, and atychiphobia? Personally I haven't, so I had to research them, but in order of what they are, they would be a fear of taking risks, a fear of change, and a fear of failure. These three phobias aren't in the same category as my arachnophobia is, and the reason being is that my fear doesn't prevent me from achieving a future blessed with happiness, success, prosperity, and fulfillment, whereby these three actually do. It's these three phobias that are so common amongst society, yet people aren't even aware of them, because unlike spiders in which you can visually see, the fear of risk, change and failure, are all only visible in the mind.
Burnout happens when you avoid being honest with yourself that you are human, for too long
There are different ways to define, measure and build resilience. The most common approach is to look at how “fast one gets back up” when one has fallen, failed, or burnt. The Merriam Webster dictionary defines resilience as the ability to become strong, healthy or successful again after something bad happens; the ability of something to return to its original shape after it has been pulled, stretched, bent, etc.; an ability to recover from or adjust daily to misfortune or change.
In Productivity, What Are Sprints?
Productivity, like most every discipline, has its own terminology. And that terminology is constantly changing and evolving. Like my Cobol professor used to say, “They changed the names to confuse the innocent and protect the guilty.”
There have been numerous accounts where someone has pointed fingers at me, talked about me, laughed at me, or even just made fun of the way that I looked to THEM. I have always wondered what it was about me that someone didn't like or why at school or in public I would be the laughing stock of the day? Was it because of my skin color? How about the texture of my hair? or maybe it was because of my weight! And for so many years I have always felt like I had to do something about the way that I looked and my approach to my everyday life when being around or involved with others. I would always cry myself to sleep, miss out on school, get nervous when I am in public, and even tried fasting before....completely insane choices I made just to feel like I fit in with everyone else. I think that the biggest issue when it comes to loving yourself a certain way or finding that confidence for yourself is 'society'! Society is filled with cruel, angry, insecure monsters that don't feel good about themselves, so they tend to take it out on someone else and make that person feel like they are worthless, useless, ugly, fat, or just don't fit in with the world! Because of other people I never went out publicly, because of other people I never dressed up for me, because of other people I never do my hair often, because of other people I am sad inside, because of other people I do not love my body, and because of other people I do not love my skin! I have allowed so many people talk me down from feeling wonderful and it hurts me to know that because of them I let myself go completely. It took me 9 years (I am now 19) to bottle up all of that and stop crying just because of some comments that someone made about me because of their insecurities! I didn't know what 'self love' was all about until I met my fiance... he makes me feel so beautiful, he makes me feel like I am the only woman that he sees, he makes me feel glamorous, and he makes me feel like I don't have to prove this world anything at all and I absolutely love him for that. I love him for showing me that all it takes 'is' love and devotion to what you want to do and if it leads you somewhere it will lead you where you need to be! So what I am saying is that don't ever allow someone to make you feel like you have to hate yourself, don't allow anyone to make you feel like you aren't worth it, that you can never be beautiful in your own body because at the end of the day...they aren't happy with themselves! Continue wearing that dress that you want to wear, continue making up your face, continue wearing heels, and continue loving you for who you are not for what someone wants you to be! Self love starts with 'you' and you can do what you want to do, so f*$k what someone says about you because you are beautiful inside and out...never let anyone break your confidence because of what they're going through! Do this and you can be all you want and more, and remember God loves you for you and I love you for you too. Thank You so much for taking the time out to read my story I have held this in for a long time now trying to find the right words to say, and I finally did it! Please like and comment what you think I would really appreciate it <3!

3 Highly Effective Tips To Crush Your Next Writing Project
Having great writing skills is a blessing in disguise. But this blessing comes at a cost. And, it is not god-given. Every popular writer you see was average in their initial days. And, the writing skills they has got today was because they never gave up on it.
We Get In Our Feelings Sometimes
Sometimes, we can really get in our feelings. And the thing is, people misunderstand that. They think, oh he/she is being mean, but they don’t know why. When people say that, its not personal. But people take it out of context. It could mean any number of things. A loved one passed away many years ago and we still dwell on what happened to that person.
It is in the ordinary of everyday housework that words decide to tumble into my head. Doing laundry, sweeping the floor, and making the bed are all good conduits for imagination, but none of these chores inspire my inner-writer quite like doing the dishes. Maybe it's the hot water that clears away the fog or the soap bubbles sparkling in the air like fairies. Then again maybe it's the repetitive nature of grabbing, rinsing, washing, rinsing, and drying, that allows the two hemispheres of my brain (logic and creativity) to communicate with each other effortlessly. Either way, for a long time, my solution for writer's block has simply been to do the dishes.
The Faith and Confidence correlation
I think that our inner beliefs in the unknown, what we are willing to risk emotionally and energetically and what we have been shown as pattens from the outside ( external world) will be a consequence of our actions guides our steps as who we are in the world.
