Be Brave {Words to Remember 5.1}

This is a new series I will be doing in 2014 in collaboration with Redline Resistance. Get going on your goals and stick with them and keep these prints around to motivate you. Each Monday (most weeks) 🙂 will be a new print and phone wallpaper to download for 99 cents.  

As I have been thinking about lessons that I want to make sure my kids learn and how I can be an example of them, I thought of some of the insecurities I have.  Last week I attended SNAP, a blogging conference for DIY blogs. For about a month before coming (okay maybe 3) I just kept telling myself that I didn’t need to go. I kept telling my husband that I thought I would just stay home and he kept telling me I needed to go. I am a little shy going into new territories in life and always have been, but I also know that I have gotten along with just about every single person I have ever met, so I knew it would be another great experience. When I finally just decided that this was happening, I dove in. As I entered the Little America hotel the first night to check in, I was lucky enough to instantly get a quick hug from Jen and Jodie at eighteen25 and Mique from 30 days. I knew the next few days would be amazing. And they were. I felt inspired and understood and connected with so many amazing women and brands that I know were just meant to happen. So the lesson:

I’ve always known that the greatest growth that I have ever experienced are in the moments where I am most uncomfortable. Being brave is my new goal. I’m keeping it on my phone, so each time I open it it stares at me.

I hope you find some moments to be brave and just go for it.
