Writing a blog about becoming brave but not telling anyone about it is pretty hypocritical, I know. So today I told someone. I told an incredibly cool woman – smart, kind, fun, accomplished, interesting. I am grateful that I know her, and I’m not just saying that because she will probably read this.
It may have been the two glasses of liquid courage I drank over dinner, but still, I told her. I worried about her reaction, but she was extremely gracious, of course. She even gave me an idea for a future blog entry (bonus!).
This blog came about because I am tired of letting fear dictate my choices, and I want to change that. Part of everyday bravery is being truthful, authentic, and transparent, regardless of what others think. So no more hiding.
Guess I have to tell my husband next. Yikes.
