Being Brave

Bravery isn’t the same for everyone. 

Sometimes, the bravest thing to do is to go about your day without worrying what others think of you. 

Sometimes, it’s walking into a classroom knowing that your bully is there, waiting for you. 

Sometimes, it’s all about facing the real truth, yours not theirs.

Sometimes, it’s about not giving in because it’s the easiest thing to do.

The brave are often the least recognized.

Courage doesn't always roar.  Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I'll try again tomorrow.  ~Mary Anne Radmacher

Who do you know that is brave and should be recognized?


  1. My mother. at 93. She is brave for facing old age as she is, still independent.

    1. Sandra, that is brave! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Being brave and standing up for what you believe in/ what is right is an admirable trait.

  3. Writers, who continue to send out our precious manuscripts into the world, in the face of the constantly changing world of publishing!

    Cheers to the writers! And artists/creators of all kinds!

  4. Brave is when someone goes out of their way to help someone else, no matter the consequences. Brave is one of my critique group members who is submitting their entire story to us for the first time.
    Excellent post!

  5. Bravery is a wonderful subject. Thank you. I'm always looking for good blogs by writers who share their tips, so I'll be following your blog.

    By the way, I'm an A to Z blogger too and my B post is about a person who's had to be brave because his life is so hard. You can read it here if you'd like.

  6. Maybe all those, including myself and my siblings, who get married at a young age, and have to take a lot of stick for it, quite unfairly!

    This is me, Duncan D. Horne, visiting you from the A-Z challenge, wishing you all the best throughout April and beyond.
