One Little Word Wednesday-January Prompts

bravery.

bravery doesn’t
happen overnight
bravery
has been living in your
bones, dormant,
but alive,
waiting for you
to see that it has
always been yours
waiting for you
to marvel when you
see that you can do
what you’ve always
wanted to do
and be who
you’ve wanted to be

I have loved spending the last few weeks really getting to know brave.  What does it mean to be brave?  How am I already brave?  Why do I crave to be more brave?  I love this simple little word that calls me to action already, that challenges me to be better, that forces me to push harder.  I have realized that I want so much more for myself in my life.  Not in terms of worldly possessions but in terms of character and experiences.  I crave new and exciting experiences that open my eyes wider to the world around me and expand my perspective.  I crave character building moments that carve me into the person that I want to be.

As I have spent time getting to know brave I have recorded my thoughts, feelings and inspiration in to my one little word album. I thought today I would share the cover page and first few pages of my album that is coming together.  Enjoy!
