Being Brave.

According to the  Merriam-Webster dictionary, the definition of Brave is "having or showing mental or moral strength to face danger, fear, or difficulty: having or showing courage."

Every day we make a choice to be happy, to be brave, and to use our voice. It is up to us as human beings to speak up and let others know how we feel. This is your true gift because it is only up to you to tell everyone how you feel. Sometimes it is extremely difficult to find your voice, believe me, I know. Even though we may not speak up immediately we must use our words and feelings to describe how we feel about our situation. 

Being brave is also about showing strength, mentally and emotionally. We go through difficult times where we have to make a decision to use our voice and use our strength to help ourselves and quite possibly others. There are many people that we all know of that have shown courage by sharing their story and sharing their bravery. We know of these women and men because they used their voice and they chose to share their story through various outlets. Regardless of how they chose to share their story, they are the true epitome of strength. 

Over the past year, we have also seen many different walks of life who have reached out to the public to make others aware of how they are being treated. Those that have decided to make their stories known, should be an inspiration to us all. I am in extreme awe of these women and men that have come forth with their experiences. They are heroes and they are the individuals that are changing the world. It is up to us to use our voice, speak the truth, expose injustices, and stand up for what is right. 

If you are experiencing pain, discomfort, or even feel as though something does not feel right, I want you to know that there are many different sources (including myself) for you to reach out to and get help. Do not let someone take advantage of you and let them take away your glory and your voice. YOUR voice was given to you for a reason and I promise you, you will feel so much better when you take that leap of faith and use your gift.

Be brave and speak YOUR truth!
