On Being Brave

Winnie the Pooh said the quote above embedded into my necklace,"you are braver than you think."   Have you ever thought about that?  That inside you, maybe buried somewhere, you are brave?   I think of army men when I think of brave.  But honestly, each of us has snipits of bravery in us that we exhibit everyday.  Maybe not the going off to war type of bravery, but battles right in our own little heads.   Are you brave enough to show your most authentic self with someone other than yourself?  Are you ready to try that new hobby or job?  Are you ready to introduce yourself to someone new?  Are you brave enough to let go of the past and enter the future without the baggage?  Are you brave enough to leave a comment on someone's blog you admire?  Think about how you can be brave ......write it on a sticky note as a gentle reminder that you are braver than you think.  Then watch as your heart opens up to new possibilities.  And that little youcan'tdothat talk in the back of your mind disappears.

thank you for the reminder. :) I feel God is beckoning me to take timid little steps of bravery towards my dream and I thank you for encouraging me through Pooh's simple words that we are all a little braver than we give ourselves credit for.
trying to be brave...
