Happy Friday {And Another Brave Thing}


Happy first Friday in May, Bravehearted Beauties! {Can you believe it’s May?!?!} I just wanted to pop in for a quick hello and encourage you to step into something brave this weekend. May is a great month to do a new brave thing. Need inspiration? Just look to all the brave and beautiful things blooming and growing outside your window right now!

Three years ago, I had no idea I was a Bravehearted Beauty. Or bravehearted anything. Yet there we were buying a farm house, selling a city house, and packing boxes for a move from our big city hometown to a small farm in another state! Talk about BRAVE! {I may need to do a three year anniversary post. Sometimes, I still can’t believe we really did this!}

Three years later, I’m saying yes to lots of brave new things. Most of them are small, but as I said in my first ever video, all those little brave yeses add up to really big things in life. Your small yes today gives you courage for a bigger yes tomorrow. This is how you become brave: you start saying YES when everything in you wants to say NO. And then you say yes again…and again…and again. And yes, there’s still fear, but that’s what makes a brave thing BRAVE! {More on bravery and fear in my second video.}

On this first day of May, I’m off to do another brave thing. I’m headed to a women’s retreat where I only know one person. And when I signed up, I didn’t even know if she was going. Joining a big group of strangers for a weekend is a big yes for an introverted homebody, but now that I’ve learned to recognize that “be brave” nudge in my spirit, I can’t seem to ignore it. So here I go…full of fear and bravery all over again.

How about you? What will your brave thing be this weekend? Look for it! Say yes to it! And come back and tell me about it!

Let’s be brave together…again!
