What are you afraid of?

'Untitled' by Ellie Niemeyer

People scare me. Social situations give me anxiety. Success frightens me. The thought of having everlasting happiness makes me shiver with doubt.

I am afraid of these things. Why? Because they are good. Because they will make things easier. But--if I allow them to, they'll change things. Everything. They'll change me, and my life.

They'll change how I think.

For the longest time, change scared me. I thought I needed to stay the same. I thought I needed to stay afraid. But I can tell you now, as I continue on with my self-discovering journey, that there's nothing to be afraid of. Yes, change is change. Change is new. Change brings experiences. But change is healthy. Change is good.

Spill your fears to me. Tell me, what frightens you?

  1. Change is scary. But letting go of fears is all about detaching ourselves from the thoughts of the circumstances of our fears. Just the simple yet not so simple word 'detachment' has helped me move on from fear and other anxieties. Things that keep me from doing other things. It may just be my personality, but I am drawn to help others and sometimes I interfere too much. And I want to help people so much that sometimes I lose myself and think only about 'what can I change about myself so that this person will accept me?" But that is not a good thing. And detachment of other people helped me. If someone doesn't accept you, but you still love them... you need to let go. They may not be worth trying to reach. Thats something that I am always anxious about XP

  2. I'm afraid of making a fool of myself in front of people who I know and (sometimes) really like. I'm 'afraid' that if they knew the 'real me', they wouldn't like me at all.
    And, I am still afraid of change.

  3. The thing that I'm the most afraid of is failing at life. But you're right, change is good. It happens whether anyone likes it or not.

Room Tour 2019

I've always wanted to do one of these posts. If not for the enjoyment of others, for the enjoyment of my future self to look back on and realize how much my style and space have changed.

My door. I think I'm sooo artsy for taping paint swatches to my door. And I actually love how it looks too. I was going for "Starry Night" with my own little twist -- and without the actual paint. ;)




This is what my room looks like from the doorway. Can you guess what the theme is? It's funny -- a few weeks ago I was discussing with Kenzie how my room has this coral and aquamarine vibe to it, yet my Instagram theme is focused on yellows and blues, and my actual fashion style is very grungy/hispter/artsy. So it all comes full circle, I guess? Still, I love my room. It's my safe haven. Now come on in so I can give you the full tour...




Right as you walk in, you will see my DIY jewelry hanging on the wall to your right. It's quite a balancing act when I want to get one of th…

So this is where I'm at.

Hi friend. How are you? I hope this post meets you well. Today I wanted to write about this little space. My corner of the Internet.

After many attempts to give it a major face lift / rebrand / vibe / mission I figured out that the girl I was in 2012 when I originally started this blog is no longer who I am.

So let's start fresh.
Hi, I'm Rosie. I am a college student and a creator of many crafts. I enjoy writing Young Adult fiction, playing piano, singing at the top of my lungs, and, above all, making other people laugh. Right now I am pursuing a degree in art therapy, which means my future job will be helping people express themselves in a safe environment with someone who loves them. I have tried to be many things on the Internet, from an American Girl doll hoarder to a make-up artist, but nothing has really clicked with me.
Not until now.
I have always been a Christian. My entire life I have identified as being a follower of Jesus Christ. But the thing about growing up in t…
