The Brevity of Bravery

I decided to be brave today despite my timidity. I had choices to make: to feel defeated and dejected, or to act boldly and with greater confidence.

I decided to fake the fear factor and dare right into my diffidence.

A new definition of bravery might be to figure out how to face our daily life with all our inadequacies. To be brave means to take great care to live our lives as honestly as we can and with as much joy as we can. The challenges will remain, and the facts on the ground are immutable.

Today I decided to be brave no matter the obstacles. It took a moment to decide.

Maybe that is what bravery demands . . . brevity!
