About Being Brave

Being brave sounds so easy.  Imagine standing on the edge of a cliff, looking down at the sparkling clear water below, hearing the sounds of joy as people run and jump off the cliff. What was that our parents used to say? "If your friend jumped off a cliff, would you?"  You may feel your tummy do a flip flop, feels like butterflies.....but.... you take a few steps back and run and jump!  And a feeling of personal freedom engulfs you. Landing in the cool clear water. Realizing that "The only thing we have to FEAR, is FEAR itself."

So, something new comes along, something that you have wanted to do but never did because you thought that maybe you weren't good enough.

Guess what, you ARE!

Just remember,

You are brave!
