Be safe or be brave

Be safe or be brave

Screen Shot 2015-07-14 at 11.32.29So here is a thought for you today! As my 9yr old son is away with school rock climbing and caving today. And my 12yr old has gone sailing and high rope climbing. I am reminded again at 42 that we need to constantly be willing to ‘Be Brave’. Both my kids were nervous about the activities they would be doing this week, but both got over their nerves and in so doing learnt new skills and are having the best time. Sometimes we too need to be reminded to get over our nerves and have a go at life! You will never know if you don’t go. You will never have the ability to climb unless you begin to scale the mountain. You will never discover what’s within, if you stay on the outside. Life demands we choose to either be safe or be brave. We even named our son ‘Noah Brave’ as we wanted to remind him everyday Brave is in your nature, it’s part of the God factor inside of you. So today I want to remind someone reading this, Brave is in you too. Be brave today, say yes, ask the question, meet the person, commit to the project. Be brave with your life and not scared of failing. Failing isn’t fatal, it’s how we discover the lessons that help us build better. When you live a life that is willing to try, then you stop trying to be perfect and realize it’s all about participating. So be brave with your life today, you’re not as fragile as you think ! #dosomethingbravetoday #greaterishethatisinyou #safeorbrave
