In Others’ Words: One Step Forward …

Beth Vogt In Others' Words, quote about life 10 Comments

Little Steps 2015

I believe that being courageous happens at the same time you are fear-filled.

You don’t wait for the fear to vanish, gather courage in your fists, and advance. No, true bravery manifests when someone whispers, “I’m scared” and then doesn’t back down from whatever enemy stands before them.

I also know that winning the day doesn’t always mean total victory. Sometimes it’s holding the ground you’ve already won. Or risking one … step … forward … and saying, “Tomorrow I will try again.”

I hang around a lot of courageous people. Some of my closest friends and I like to sing “Brave” by Sara Bareilles — it’s a vocal reminder to be brave, be ourselves, to step up, step out … to go for it, to go forward.

 

In Your Words: How’s your week been? What opportunity (or opportunities) did you have to be brave?

To my friends who follow In Others’ Words: I’m making a change to the blog and implementing a Tuesday-Thursday schedule. This will help me as I manage my writing deadlines. I will start next week, Tuesday, June 30. I hope you’ll stay with me as I transition to two days a week. I love when you join the conversation!

      No other choice, yes … but still, you are there — in that place, for all the other choices you made before — choosing to be brave in the midst of fear.

  1. My being brave this week is sort of laughable. I went to the beauty salon and had a keratin hair treatment done for the very first time. What’s brave about that you may ask? My son is getting married in two weeks and I had no clue how my hair would react. So far so good. It didn’t turn purple, didn’t fall out (well, no more than usual) and didn’t spilt or dry out!
    Your time is valuable and so is everyone’s. I will enjoy hearing from you no matter how often or seldom it is.
