So funny, so awesome, so great, so ironic....I keep getting emails from people about how to be more brave...or how I am so brave...or I wish I were as brave as you....so...I am gonna come clean people.....I AM TRYING TO BE BRAVE...live a brave life every day...because I am scared of pretty much everything...I am overcoming it...BUT...I have to wake up every morning and work really hard to have a brave day....I will write more on it later...because I am headed back to the acupuncturist...BUT!! I wanted to post this book that I made for someone I love very much who is waking up every day and trying to be brave too...and it's dedicated to YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE...and to all of you...any of you who are going through something right now that requires lots of courage....forgiveness (others AND yourself) and that is sort of turning your life upside down a bit.........seems like there's lots of people going through BIG BIG stuff right now. YOU WILL MAKE IT!!!! I will tell you more about what I've learned about courage and being brave when I get back from the doc....
LOVE IS SO BRAVE
What is being brave?
It doesn't mean that you aren't scared...or confused. It doesn't mean that you know exactly what to do.
It DOES mean, that you keep going even THOUGH you ARE scared, sad, confused....
and even though you have NO IDEA what to do next.
means that you stay exactly who you are...even when everything changes.
you believe the feelings in your gut...and you listen to the birds and you listen to your heart,
BEING BRAVE OFTEN MEANS
that you ignore all of the other voices around you. (except God's of course)
BEING BRAVE MEANS
holding yourself together when life seems to be falling apart
when you can't hold it together, then....
SOMETIMES the BRAVEST thing that you can do
....is to let GOD hold you together...
to give HIM your pain, fear, confusion and sadness.
BEING BRAVE means
knowing that things will ALWAYS work out somehow
(AND being brave means accepting God's timetable for working things out)
BEING BRAVE MEANS
IN EVERY SITUATION.
UNDER EVERY CONDITION.
Love is SO brave.
YOU ARE LOVE
YOU ARE BRAVE
YOU WILL MAKE IT.
