Project Reverb is a way to reflect on the past year and project into the next year with a prompt a day for 31 days. These prompts are meant to be answered in posts on personal blogs, and anyone can join in.
“Brave” was the prompt from December 3rd, so as you can tell I am a bit behind. Truth is that I wasn’t sure I was going to participate or not, but I’ve realized that I can benefit from reflection.
This one is challenging because I don’t really consider myself a brave person, or one who does brave things. That seems silly because I know there are always situations that require us to be brave.
The bravest thing I did in 2013 is the fact that I kept going. Through all the challenges and adversity. I got out of bed every morning when I didn’t want to. I dried all the tears and no matter how difficult it was, I always put a smile on my face. If I didn’t have anything nice to say, then I tried really hard not to say anything at all. Well, that’s what I tried to do anyways.
Bravery comes in all ways and is unique to each person.
In 2013 I didn’t defy any magnificent odds, but I was courageous when I needed to be. I stood my ground, put one foot in front of the other, and became my own heroine along the way.
