The Gift of Gratitude: Bravery

The Gift of Gratitude Day 28: Bravery


I will admit it…I am a worrier.  For years, all of my energy was spent worrying about the future.  The big worries, the little worries and every worry in-between.  What did all of this worry do for me? Positively, nothing!   It was stealing my strength from the present moment, leaving me feeling even more worried.  Rather than focusing on all that could go right in my life, I was spending my energy trying to prepare for everything that could go wrong, thus creating problems in my mind that were not reality.

Have I improved over the years? Definitely!  Focusing on living in the moment and trusting in my journey has helped me to believe in the greater plan.  I have learned that worry does not change a thing.  It is an evil creature that plays tricks in my head and steals my joy and happiness.  Over the years, I have learned to breathe…to be still…to trust.  I remind myself to focus on today and only today.  Most importantly, I remind myself to be BRAVE!

Remember to fight your inner fears.   Continue to face them, when then choose to revisit.  Most importantly, remember to always face them with a BRAVE and LOVING HEART…

Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You…


She who is BRAVE is FREE…

  1. I think this may be one of those things that improves with age. All we do is worry as our kids are growing up and then one day, we get that they are actually ok! They will be fine and our stressing over everything really won’t affect change anyway!

  2. Well said, Roda! I have also learnt that lesson painfully over the years. Worry constantly clouds the mind and only keeps clarity away. It keeps us stuck and unhappy. It takes faith, trust and bravery to move pass it. Thank you for sharing. 🙂
