“Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute experience.” –Paulo Coelho
Bravery sounds epic.
But what if it’s simple…and perhaps even unnoticeable to the outside world.
What if it’s only being willing to take one simple action outside our comfort zone.
What if it’s merely being willing to do a double-take on ourselves and examine our already-always belief systems of who we are and ways of doing things.
What if it’s just being willing to try a new path without knowing the result.
Bravery inspires us when spotlighted in extreme events, yet every single moment of our day is an opportunity for quiet and unheralded bravery.
Perhaps we could all benefit from the regular awarding of personal medals of valor.
What simple action, self-reflection or path can you take today with only you on the streets throwing confetti about?
Got private medal?
“You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” –Winnie the Pooh
