Day 2650: Everyday Bravery

Yesterday, in an act of everyday bravery, an esteemed colleague sent me this “for your blog.”

I’m going to have the everyday bravery of suggesting more everyday bravery pins:

FORGAVE MYSELF

MAINTAINED HEALTHY BOUNDARIES

ASKED FOR HELP

SAID “NO”

PUBLICLY SHOWED EMOTION

SPOKE MY TRUTH

GAVE SOMEBODY CREDIT

CHANGED MY OPINION

DIDN’T WORRY

What everyday bravery pins might you wear today?

Do you see everyday bravery in the photos I took yesterday?

There’s another everyday bravery pin: “GOT OUT OF BED.”

The everyday brave David Byrne tells us that “Everyday is A Miracle.”

If you have the everyday bravery to make a comment, below, I’ll have the everyday bravery to respond.

Finally, here’s some everyday gratitude from me to YOU.

  1. Oh, I love some of these. Every day is indeed a miracle. Keep being brave!

  2. Everyday Bravery
    I am sure, your esteemed colleague is very brave indeed.

  3. I am going to ignore the falling snow, blowing wind and my hacking cough and head on out to work, Ann.
    So my pin would say … Rolls right along.

  4. Every day is a miracle Ann!!!

  5. I can see myself wearing six of those medals, but that’s just my rapid response.

    There are 2 pins i would wear: Forgave myself, and gave someone credit because I think they compliment each other. I also like the note your wrote, because worrying about the past and future ruins the present, but, paradoxically we have to be responsible enough to care about the future ( at least the near future) so it will in fact, be less stressful and more pleasing.

  7. What wonderful pins, Ann. I love them! I “stopped caring about BS” and “picked my battles,” and perhaps more, but those stand out! I’m going to refer to these from time to time. They’re helpful actually.

  9. Sometimes saying it like it is

  10. This is hilarious. Everyday bravery is so individual.

  11. You’re so cute when you tie a word together with your blog! I suppose ‘cute’ isn’t the right word, but when was the last time someone called you a that?
