This prompt, in one variation or another, is one I think about a lot.
Sometimes, when I'm about to do something that really scares me (like speak in front of a new group, share new work, or scoop up a spider in my daughter's bedroom), I remind myself to be brave. It totally helps. It acknowledges the fear without letting it take over. Be afraid and do it anyway, that's been my mantra lately.
This year, I'm going to expand my approach to journaling in ways that involve sharing more of myself and my ideas (and some of them might be a little unconventional). I don't know whether I'll succeed, but I believe that my ideas are good and useful, so I'll be brave and put them out there.
How will you be brave in 2018?
