The ribbons are for fearlessness

One of the books that inspired me the most in 2015 was "The ribbons are for fearlessness" by Catrina Davies (

It's a true story about a young woman crippled by heartbreak and grief who decides to fulfill her dead friend dream to busk his way to the midnight sun. In a huge, yellow rust bucket armed with her cello she sets of to Norway, conquers her fear of performing in public, meets amazing people and ends up driving all the way to Portugal. 

'Fearlessness has got nothing to do with being unafraid. It's about doing things anyway, getting on with it, living, whether you're afraid or not...Courage is about being who you are with your whole heart.' 

Go and get it and let it inspire you to re-think the fears that stop you from living! Ok, we might not all be musicians, able to earn money while travelling but I bet every single reader (as well as me, of course) has dreams which need to be fulfilled!

CARPE DIEM everyone!
