Magical May is here! Why is May so magical, you ask? For one, we have a beautiful and enchanting desktop wallpaper for May. Secondly, it’s filled with many international holidays, such as International Mother’s Day, International Worker’s Day and the final week is even dedicated to libraries (the true home of magic). And you know what’s even more magical about May? Its birthstone is the mystical Emerald, symbol of love and success. People with birthday’s in May, are more likely to achieve higher success and more love in their life compared to any other months. The Emerald stone, is also the first clue to our May desktop wallpaper author this month.

Of course, Frank Baum is well known for his Wizard of Oz books. The magical journey of a girl named Dorothy, her dog and faithful friends to the Emerald City. The story has everything, magic, creativity, humour and most importantly valuable life lessons. My favourite quote from the book is:

“True courage is in facing danger, when you are afraid…”

What I love about this quote is that it is clear and to the point! Real courage is hidden in facing your fears. If you are willing to face your fears, you not only show bravery, but the ability to control your destiny. Remember, facing your fears can only lead to success. If you always stay in the safe zone you will never move forward or achieve your dreams! This reminds be of a quote from Winnie the Pooh. So, this month I challenge you to do something that you’re afraid of. Attend a networking event, climb a mountain, speak to someone new, anything to challenge yourself. Fear is nothing but a feeling and all feelings can be tamed!
