"You Cannot Cross The Ocean
Unless You Dare To Lose Sight Of The Shore..."
20 SECONDS OF COURAGE
When I was a young girl, growing up in a very small town and moving away from home when I was only 16, I desperately wished to be brave; to take from life as much as I possibly could, to hear, to see, to taste, to smell and experience everything as if every day was the last day of my life.
I took my own life in my own hands and I truly lived to the fullest, being immensely brave every day, there was no challenge which I didn`t dare to face.
I suppose young bravery is a natural trait, as the world that lies before them is a new and completely unexplored playing field and it`s there for the taking.
Well, guess what, I grew up, I grew older! Bit by bit I got less energetic and connected; became a mum to a child, then to a second, then to a third and both physically and mentally, I think I simply stopped even attempting to do anything challenging for about 20 years.
And although that state of mind was a "safe place", it was soul destroying and very confining. The less you challenge the soul, the weaker it gets, I discovered first hand.
So, here I am today, having decided that I have to take this one life we have and do something remarkable with it and I`m working hard again to do something brave every day-it doesn`t have to be skydiving or swimming with hungry sharks (neeeever in my life!!!) but something as simple as writing an email with a clear intent, make a productive phone call, help someone in need and create a better life for yourself. If something is scary, give it a go for 20 seconds-I promise you will discover that you have much more "Umph" than you thought
Step by step, let`s get involved and dare to be brave again.
