I read this quote the other day and it got me thinking about “growing brave by reflection.”

My take on that is that we can look at experiences with a thoughtful eye and see how we could do better, make different choices (brave choices), and have an alternate result. We can be reflective on a decision we’re contemplating, too.  And it’s pretty darn brave to smile when trouble finds us or gain strength from making it through a challenge.

I think it takes a good bit of bravery to honestly evaluate our lives, our inner selves, and be willing to learn and change from what we discover – to grow brave by reflection.

And the rest of this quote is pretty awesome, too. When we follow what our hearts tell us to do, and our mind approves – there is a recipe for success!

Over the course of the weekend, I did something that was brave for me – that pushed me beyond the borders of my comfort zone. And when it was all said and done, I felt good about having done that thing (and somewhat relieved it was over!).

It got me thinking about being brave. What’s brave for me might not be brave for you. Likewise, what might be brave for you, might not be for someone else.

We can’t measure our moments of bravery by anyone else’s yardstick. We each, on our own, have to be our own kind of brave.

Don’t compare your brave to others. Don’t discount what you know in your heart is something brave for you today just because someone else might not see it that way.

Just be you and keep stepping into bravery, even if it is one tiny little baby step this week.

This is such an awesome quote and it spoke to my heart this week. I like the idea that we have a responsibility to live this one precious life as fully, bravely and beautifully as we can.

This past week, I started putting a few things in place that I hope will help me live a little more fully, bravely and beautifully this year. I know it’s not always going to be an easy thing to do, but I think it’s going to be worth it!

What about you? Is there something you’d like to change or do this year that would help you live life more fully, bravely or beautifully?
