Have you ever had a moment or a time when you felt you had truly outdone yourself—yet you knew at that moment that you had also been more yourself than ever before?
Have you ever done something that made you feel particularly brave, sexy, strong, spontaneous, intelligent, compassionate, or beautiful? A time when you dared to be fearless?
You dared to be fabulous!
Daring, joy, and empowerment can cover a wide range of topics. Some stories are quite serious while others are hilarious. Your story could be about allowing yourself to change perspective and the empowerment or liberation that came from that experience. It could also be about taking a daring action, either impromptu or deliberate. A caveat is that no living being was intentionally harmed either physically or emotionally by your actions. After all, fabulous women would never let that happen!
