Nov. 2: When was the last time you did something brave? What happened?
It’s day two of the challenge and I’m not blogging until 9:30 pm. 🙂 Life happened… and by life I mean, I finally was so exhausted I needed a nap and spent the day resting. I also tried a Blue Apron today (super exciting) but I’ll blog about that tomorrow. So, be sure to check back in!
Now, to address today’s prompt…
I believe I have something called “quiet courage.” I may not out right do something one would call courageous at first glance but I certainly try to live a life based on principle. Morals are a must. Honesty is a must. When I read today’s prompt, I began pondering when the last time I truly did something I’d consider brave... Well, I cooked a new meal today… does that count? Probably not.
About a year and a half ago, I made a life decision that involved changing my career and standing up for myself in an unfair situation. It took lots of time and thought to decide to make the change because it involved moving across a few states, changing jobs, etc, but my happiness depended on it and I do not regret it one bit. I see no point in living a life that pleases everyone but me!
The other brave thing I’ve done is to start this blogging challenge knowing that I have no clue if I can come up with 30 things to write. I don’t know if people will want to read it or if it will be well received. But, I do know that I enjoy writing and once again I’m going to carve our a little time to do something that makes me happy in a world of sometimes choosing to live to please others.
Have to cut it short, my son is crying and I can’t hold back the mom-guilt any longer… maybe I’ll post about that one day. I actually had to get him and start nursing before I finished this blog… Talk about multitasking.
Have you done anything brave recently? How do you define courage? I look forward to reading your responses.
Now, go find something beautiful and have a great night!
