fearless females

sometimes your heart will hurt. sometimes your smile will ache. sometimes your light will dim. sometimes your spirit will break. sometimes your entire world will come crashing down with no warning, and no signs.. but no matter how destroyed you feel - you have to be willing to dig deep inside of yourself to find some ambition to get you back right. you have to look out for you. you have to let go. you have to place your focus primarily on YOU. nothing about losing what’s familiar feels good.. but uncomfortable places can be beautiful. growth is beautiful. you are beautiful. you shouldn’t have to wait around and pray for someone to love you. you should love you. you should let go - because nothing worth holding onto will ever destroy you. and holding on is destroying you. trying to love someone into loving you - is destroying you. let go because you have to get a hold of you. you have to retrace your steps and figure out where you let YOU go. you have to take time to yourself to reflect on when and where you lost yourself. you have to let go of what no longer is - and accept what may have never been.. then you have to pick yourself back up. you have to release any negativity clouding your mind and you have to rid yourself of hopeful feelings. cleanse your soul. listen to your intuition. learn yourself. let go of any bad habits you’ve picked up along your journey. and start over. no matter how bad or how much it hurts.. let go and start over. holding on is destroying you.

My childhood dream was to live the romanticised version of the life of archeologists in Egypt in the 1920s and do the most amazing discoveries and rise above all my male colleagues like the queen of the deserts. I wanted to be the most fearless female adventurer. Ancient and contemporary Egypt forever has a special place in my heart. I just wish my dreams weren’t so pathetically unrealistic.

Don’t be afraid to share yourself with someone who knows what they have, when they have you.

There is really nothing cute about the work and sacrifice you have to put in. The risks you have to take, the things and people you have to give up for your dreams, the sleepless nights. It’s not only physical work but emotional and mental day in and day out. If anyone could do it, then everyone would be doing it. But guess what? It’s easier to tell people what they should be doing when they aren’t the ones doing it. I rather take my own advice cause only I trust the work I’ve done and the knowledge I constantly seek. It might look easy to most from the outside in, but that’s because when your goals are more important than pleasing other people you find comfort in knowing you can make them come true.
