Brick by Brick

The doctor stood on the stage and spoke, letting every low point hang hover and every inflection soar above everyone. She hoped that her triumphs, and mostly failures, would inspire courage and perseverance among us female athletes. After all, that is the purpose of the women in sports conference.

Although each speaker spoke eloquently about a variety of life experiences, the doctor´s words still ring in the back of my head. ¨Pick a word to help shape who you are, mine´s fearless,¨ she said. Fearless. So simple, so great. I love the idea of challenging yourself to be more like the person you want to be. You have the power to take control of your life if there is something you want to get out of it that you´re not. So why not try it? I´ll start off on a month long scale and do my best to be fearless.
