Sometimes being brave is phenomenal. Sometimes it’s minuscule. I think the phenomenal moments of courage are made of a multitude of minuscule ones.
So I ask myself and you might ask yourself too…
Did I wake up today? Yes! Well done. That was brave. I opened my eyes and didn’t know what the rest of the day would hold but I did it.
Did I get up today? Yes! Congratulations. Sometimes that is one of the hardest things to do.
Did I shower, get dressed, remember to eat? Yes. Fabulous! Every step forward is a brave one.
Did I read something a bit challenging? I did. And I met it it with an open heart and a grateful mind. Wow!! That’s really pretty astounding.
Did I see someone who asked how I was? Oh golly, yes. Did I answer them honestly? Pretty much. No, I didn’t mention every hard thing. Yes, I did say I’m doing ok. Did I say things were great when they’re not? No I didn’t! Well done, you were truthful! Truth is very brave.
Did I feel my emotions today? Yes, I did. Some hurt. Some were lovely. Congratulations. It takes great courage to truly feel.
Did I write something today? Yes! Here it is! Well done me.
Am I still brave?
Yep. I bet you are too!
