What is being brave? It can be so many different things for different people. Being brave for a 5 year old can be jumping off the diving board! Or can be trying to pull the teacher in with you. Yeah, I kinda didn’t make it through swim lessons! But I did eventually learn how to swim, tho please don’t count on me to save you!
Bravery is the child who stands up for the one that is being picked on. The teen who chooses to go eat lunch with the lonely teen sitting by themselves in a corner of the cafeteria.
Bravery is standing for the truth, even when others may be against you. Its speaking out against injustice, when the roar of the crowd is deafening against you. It is facing your fears and unveiling things you have held inside. You are stepping out in order to help yourself and others!
Yes, Bravery takes on many faces and not every brave move has to be something major. You can be brave in light hearted ways as well. I was joking with a dear friend saying how its time for the tables to be turned, as far as jokes go. Time for me NOT to be the red faced, and embarrassed one. Remember my Friday’s 6 word story with the lion hiding his face, well there is a longer story behind that 6 word story. Anyway, she quickly agreed, saying how its past, past time! So nice of her to agree that I often end up on the losing end! Then her response was 3 words , “Bring it on!”
Is there something you been debating about being brave about ? Something you want to stand up for, but just don’t know how. Afraid to make the move. To take that jump off the dive! Let go of the Teacher’s hand and JUMP, you may be very glad you did! You got the courage in you, just BRING IT ON and do it!
