DO SOMETHING YELLOW: Stand out with courage


鉁达笍DO SOMETHING YELLOW: Every now and then I try to do something audaciously out of my comfort zone. 鉁达笍Today it is a seemly small step to put this yellow post with my picture has got me cringing. It is glaring and painful for the eyes to see myself. That is why is the perfect way to say- that one must stand out once in a while. 馃挭馃徏 鉁达笍Making a point here. Let鈥檚 all just stand out from our understated existence do something yellow! 馃槀


鈥淭he problem when you are a strong, capable, self-confident person, is that more often than not, people think that you don't really need things like comfort, reassurance, loyalty and guidance. People are more likely to look at you and say, "She doesn't need this", "She doesn't need that", "She's already all of this and all of that". But then the truth is that most probably, you are a strong, capable, self-confident person because you built yourself brick-by-brick into that person; because you HAD to BECOME that person; because you had determination enough to make yourself into the image that you knew you needed to become. At the heart of many strong, confident people, is a heart most longing of the things that most others simply take for granted.鈥
