Each brave day

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!

I’m Sarah, and just like you, I’ve had to be brave. So here we go. My stories, my journey, my laughter and my tears might all rate a mention. But most of all, if I look in the mirror, I want to remind her, She is still Brave!

  1. Sometimes brave really is a small birdsong in the vast emptiness isn’t it? It doesn’t always roar.
    I am lying here too tired to move my body so I can put myself to bed, feeling that kind of overwhelm and mindless web browsing-ness that comes when the brain is fried… but it led me here and to the reminder that I did some brave stuff today, too. Thank you!
    And well done! Writer, do-er of stuff and truth speaker!

    1. Thank you, Rach, oh brave one.
      That has lifted my spirits enormously. I hope you’ve found your way to bed and sleep peacefully tonight.
