If I Were Brave…

Oct 5, 2011 by

I spend so much of my time being hurt by pains from my past.

  • If I were brave I would live my life looking at my present through the front window instead of looking at my past through the rear view mirror.

My wusband’s (he was my husband) grandmother passed away a few days ago. I haven’t seen her in years, but she was my Nan too.

  • If I were brave I would go to the funeral anyway. I am devastated that my Nan is gone. I cherished her.

In the pages of this blog, my books and the words I speak, I share helpful, caring and wise things.

  • If I were brave I would follow my own advice. It would help me feel better.

I cringe and get defensive when I share with people that I still gamble every now and then.

  • If I were brave I would stand up for my health, progress, balance and good judgement. I have come a long way.

I complain constantly that my husband doesn’t spend enough time with me.

  • If I were brave I would admit that I enjoy the time alone because it gives me the opportunity to write. I really do love to write.

I am hard on myself a lot, expecting perfection, production and greatness.

  • If I were brave I would go easy on myself because I know I am only going through a phase (a long one) of cleansing, rebalancing and rebirth.

I am sure that I am continually in the way or being a nuisance.

  • If I were brave I would let myself see how important I am to people and that they welcome my presence through the written word or in person.

 If I were brave…I would realize that I already am brave and that I am right where I am supposed to be.

So are you.

Blessings my friend.
