Be Brave

Be brave, get out and go.  Find your way, take chances, don't fear falling, if you fall, pick yourself up and keep going.  Make the world a better place, one place at a time.  Don't fear imperfection, the pearl forms around the irritation.  The pearl survives long after the oyster that formed it has been consumed. 

Keep growing, keep learning.  Stay curious, expand your horizons.  Try something new for lunch, take a different route, read a different book, listen to different music.   

Find comfort in routine, while looking for novelty in the familiar.  

Life is too short for the routine things to be boring.  

Remember, you will regret most what you had the opportunity to do, and didn't do. Be brave, be bold, embrace the adventure.  


  1. I just found out I like indian sitar music. put on a cd, grab my knitting, and meditate.

  2. I don't particularly care for pearls, but I get what you're saying. I'm kind of adventurous. I still go to places while being Black :) I don't have regrets really, except for the one where I wish I had taken up knitting when my hands worked!

  3. I firmly believe in what you say here dear. My favorite motto is and will always be." Life is a banquet, and some sorry suckers are starving to death."

  4. "Always do the thing you are afraid of" - Emerson.
