Today is Day 1 of my fourth #SOLSC so I must celebrate my #OneLittleWord (#OLW) Brave.
What is brave in 2017?
Brave is taking a risk, being a bit fearful of the outcome, and YET choosing to move forward with a decision or task!
Brave is writing every day in March with fellow slicers.
Brave is speaking up in defense of others and asking for action to protect our citizens (threats on Jewish Community Centers).
Brave is standing tall with friends when it’s the right thing to do.
Brave is defending choices that one may not make for one’s own self, but leaves it as a viable option for others.
Brave is that spot in one’s stomach that hurts but YET one persists and follows the heart because it is the right thing to do.
Brave is asking questions when everyone else is silent.
Brave is speaking out when bullies persist.
Brave is writing and calling legislators when their actions are harmful.
“Brave means feeling afraid and doing it anyway. Brave means saying NO when those around you want you to say yes. Brave means taking a leap of faith even when you’re not sure how things will turn out. Brave means getting up and walking out into the sunshine even when the circumstances of your life make you want to stay in the dark. Brave is shouting out loud and brave is also staying quiet. Brave is when you stay true to your heart. Your brave is different from my brave. When you find the place inside you where your truest desires meet your deepest trepidation, that’s where you’ll find your brave.” (Erika Petrelli, Quora)
