Choose To Be Brave

What if instead of feeling anxious or upset by something going on in our lives, what if instead we chose to feel brave?

If we begin to think of ourselves as brave rather than put-upon, brave rather than burdened, brave rather than vulnerable, suddenly the hard thing we're going through becomes a little bit lighter.

We each have our own soft spots that could use a dose of bravery. It might mean drawing away from a friendship that has turned toxic. It might mean breaking out of a rut or giving up unhealthy habits. It might mean moving through a difficult phase in life with grace and elegance.

Whatever is hard in your life right now, dear friends, just remember that you can choose to be brave. There's no doubt that feeling sorry for ourselves is the easier choice but I think bravery will do more for our hearts and minds and characters, don't you think?
