Bravery...Being Bold

Everyone has the potential to be brave at least once in their life.  Bravery is not the absence of fear but how we face it.  What is difficult is being brave all the time.  We are constantly faced with choices and many times it boils down to two questions:  Do I choose the easy option, even if it means compromising my morals? or Do I go with the hard choice and stick to my convictions?  It is tempting to take the easy path, but I have found the easy path can lead to a slow soul death and stagnation.

So when you find yourself in a situation where you feel uncomfortable because it goes against what you believe but you feel fear, really look at those questions.  What can you live with?

Be Brave.

I'm participating in the  A to Z Blogging Challenge.  Sunday is a day off...Monday will continue with C.


  1. Two of my favorite sayings:

    "Feel the fear, and do it anyway."


    "It's ok to be afraid. It's not ok to be a coward."

    Well said, Kelly, good stuff.

  2. Stumbled on your blog thru the A to Z challenge. Bravery and Being Bold, I think I have my share fair of both. Brave enough to take chances, bold enough to not care what others think...
