Jessica Simpson: I Ignore My Fears Too Often

Jessica Simpson: I Ignore My Fears Too Often

Jessica Simpson wraps herself in her Louis Vuitton scarf as she arrives at LAX airport with her assistant on Wednesday night. The singer “slash” actress was spotted shopping at Barneys in NYC earlier in the day.

Via her fansite SweetKisses, Jessica just released this statement regarding her upcoming movie and a few quotes that’s meant a lot to her lately:

“Hey everyone. I hope you are all doing well! I am getting ready to start MAJOR MOVIE STAR and I am so excited! I just got back from spending some time in Europe, and while I was there I visited many museums, and have been reading about different artists. I have also been writing a lot in my journal recently. I was reading a book about Michelangelo and there were 2 quotes that caught my attention -

“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.”

“Each time we face our fear, we gain strength, courage, and confidence in the doing.”

These quotes inspired me to write the below passage. I hope you can find your own individual meaning in it, as I keep coming back to it and find new strength.

“Sometimes we are all so afraid to be honest with ourselves because we know that honesty will lead us somewhere off the path of the life we’ve mapped out in our minds. Today, I challenge us to ask ourselves this… What if we allow our fear to provoke us into action? Can facing our fear be what walks us to somewhere better? I do not have your answers, but in the quest to find my own, I’ve discovered somewhere worth traveling to… In my life, I ignore my fears too often, but then I’m left with nothing to challenge the best of me. I just remain cowering from my true identity. There is no discovery.”

  • jo

    She should stop trying to be intellectual and stick with the blonde/bimbo thing!

  • Cynthia

    I wish she would pay attention to her fears and get that ugly nose of hers fixed already because her biggest challenge will be unemployment.

  • susan

    sure.. she “wrote” that.
    that sounds like a john mayer blog entry that never made it.

  • Diana

    She can date anyone she likes … it is not the 60´s anymore … don’t u know?

  • jessieee

    She looks great, why should she “fix” her nose..i like tht shes real and shes beautiful!! tht yellow LV wrap looks goood!

  • Diana

    I agree, kudos for her not fixing her nose and looking like everybody else.

  • Christy

    @Dianna:

    You mean…like her sister?

  • WTF

    Meh.

  • Diana

    @Christy,

    Yes, like her sis and half the girls we see here. However, I think she is doing something to her lips.

  • Sara

    This is one of the things that make her likeable. I can talk a lot of crap about this woman, but she does have a good heart & I can’t say that about too many other celebs.

  • Samantha

    Did daddy preach this to her or something?

  • Lucie

    Whoa. She went to a museum??? I’d like to have seen her interpreting the different artworks. Like “oh this one’s pretty. oh yeah and this one’s pretty too. eww look at this statue he’s got no pants on” lol

  • tanique33

    thanks jared, for the “slash” it was just as funny the second time around.

    she remains “cowering”??? i’m sure she’s throws that word around regularly. i hate to admit, my first thought was, “who really wrote that?”

  • Jill

    “Face fears” she has not face fears if she did she would tell JM to go to hell, because he treats her like crap. She is so afraid of being alone she allows him to treat her like Whor#.
    True you do not have answers, JM do not want to be seen in public with you=HE IS SHAME OF YOU, HE SLIPS YOU IN HOTELS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT LIKE A 2 BIT HOOKER. HE PUTS EVERY THING BEFORE YOU.

  • Lu3

    lol she didn’t write that – notice the completely different writing styles from when she talks about writing the journal entry (child like) to the very mature journal entry itself. So not Jessica’s writin!.

  • Alaina

    It’s weak to latch yourself to a man who’s not that into you. May be you need to start your studies there.

  • (‘@’)

    How to put yourself and your career back on track is your biggest challenge now. Spend more time on that instead of writing your little bed time journal, gosh!
