❤ I think there is a certain age, for women, when you become fearless. It may be a different age for every woman, I don’t know. It’s not that you stop fearing things: I’m still afraid of heights, for example. Or rather, of falling — heights aren’t the problem. But you stop fearing life itself. It’s when you become fearless in that way that you decide to live.
Perhaps it’s when you come to the realization that the point of life isn’t to be rich, or secure, or even to be loved — to be any of the things that people usually think is the point. The point of life is to live as deeply as possible, to experience fully. And that can be done in so many ways.” ❤

A friend of mine has sent it as a broadcast. I loved it so much, I forward it to my best friend. She commented saying “Wise words, but I think the writer has to elaborate more”. I agreed with her and started looking for her blog to read the post. Another favourite part I found in her post is
“I felt that I was the most beautiful I had ever been in my life, and the smartest and bravest. I felt as though I deserved to feel alive, as though I deserved life and love and to do the work I was meant for. And that if I was brave enough to strive for those things, the universe would help me.”
Personally, I have reached that age, where a woman becomes Fearless. I have realised many things over the past years but now I finally do feel that I am Fearless. I have experienced many things that have built or left a mark on me, gone through toughest situations that I never thought I would go through, but it all taught me the real point of life and purpose of living.
There were so many ups and downs, but i had a strong belief in God that what ever he’s making me go through will surely change something in me for good, and will definitely pull me out of such times when I will learn my lesson.
I reached to a point where even if I don’t have a job or money to pay my bills, still I am calm and have a smile on my face thanking God for everything i have, when people intentionally mistreat me and make me suffer to get my salary, I still forgive and treat them good, but I never forget.
I just stopped fearing of what’s going to come, because I know I will pass it with a smile on my face. That unstoppable fearless feel. So yes there is no certain age to become fearless, even a 25 year old can be fearless.
