Dear Brave Souls.
So yesterday I had a little bump in the brave journey.
As a matter of fact, my brave got messed up for a bit.
Sometimes, its just the way it is going to go, your brave plan gets a bit side swiped by an encounter, event, conversation, or any other thing that might trigger a not so good reaction.
And so it was with me, and the death of Talia Joy. It was and is okay for me to be sad, especially the feelings of sorrow and grief of her parents who just lost their child. I can not even imagine that. However, it’s not okay for me to relate her death to my own journey and life. I needed to be sure and process, that what I was feeling was on the correct side of the grid.
When those moments come, we have to be able to recognize them, embrace them and then allow ourselves to process through them . Not to brush them under the rug and think our reactions are ridiculous and move on. Because chances are, you are going to come round this mountain more than once until you can articulate the why, when and how?
One LIVE BRAVE participant, Jamie Dean, had this to say, today on the facebook page:
Quite frankly, today is one of those days I don’t want to be Brave. Under the weight of ‘it all.’ I suppose you can call it stubborn. Or maybe irrational, immature, selfish. I’m going to call it Transparent. Until the greatness of tomorrow…
Personally, I think that is probably the “BRAVEST” thing she did today. Transparency, that her day may have been less than brave, but then her declaration of the future and t he, “greatness of tomorrow.” I absolutely love that.
It’s what a BRAVE one would say .
Live Brave Question #3.
So tell us, what was the bravest thing you did yesterday?
Let’s share and cheer each other on, over on our Live Brave, Not Broken facebook page.
I still would love to hear your processes on the colliding of your Brave and Broken.
Until tomorrow; peace and grace on your Live Brave journey.
PS: You can find the link for the ETSY shop to purchase a Live Brave, Not Broken tank top in the right side bar.
And tomorrow, I will post about the giveaway for one of these tank tops.
