Fierce Friday - What Does It Mean To Be Fierce?

Friday, April 26, 2019

what does it mean to be fierceA little over a year ago, I came up with the concept of "Fierce Friday."  Now, to be transparent, I didn't come up with it with the best of intentions or the kindest of reasons.  I was in a bad place; and by the time Friday rolled around each week, let's just say that I was over a LOT of things!  Thankfully, that was then, and my view of ferocity and being fierce has truly evolved.

So, what does it mean to be fierce?  I looked it up, and my favorite definition is this:

“Heartfelt and powerful intensity.” 

The fierce are the change-makers, the influencers, the impacters of the world.  The fierce see a need and go after it wholeheartedly.  The fierce fight with all they have and then push just a bit further.  The fierce have grit.

Of course, you know I can't just leave it at that, right?  I’m going to deliver a little bit of fire here. 

I’m going to be so bold as to say we as women are all called to be beautifully fierce.  We all have a fire inside that is meant to burn with that powerful intensity.  Have you found your fire yet?  Have you found your spark?  Have you found that thing - or things - that make your heart pound a little bit faster?  That thing that makes you want to stand up and shout?

Can I let you in on a little secret?  That fire that makes you fierce?  It can go out.  It can be stifled.  Perhaps even worse, it can starve.  Finding your spark is just the beginning.  If I may be frank, anyone can do that.  Anyone.

But fanning the flame?  That takes work.  HARD work and HEART work.  It takes fuel and discipline.  And it takes ferocity.  Quite the little cycle, isn't it?

Over the last year, I have truly begun to see the merit in being fierce.  And I have seen the work it requires to maintain and fan the flames of ferocity.  Can I let you in on one more little secret?  It's worth it.  Completely worth it.

And because I would be completely remiss if I didn't offer - if I can help you find YOUR passion, your reason to be fierce, please reach out.  I'd love to help you find it!
