How are you brave?
Oh, what a year it has been. The answer to this prompt came to me instantly. This year, I took on something so challenging that took a lot of courage. I moved over 1700 miles: from Mesa, AZ to Louisville, KY. Moving into my own place so far away as a single mom was probably one of the most exciting and stressful things I have done to date. It was so scary moving away from Arizona, the place where my sweet daughter was born and where I had so many friends.
This prompt made me think of a quote from one of my favorite books, Dune:
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
To me, bravery means facing your fears and showing courage.
Here is to new beginnings, y’all. ❤️
