Brave

What makes someone brave?

This question has been bouncing around my brain this week.

I looked it up:

brave /brāv/ adjective
ready to face and endure danger or pain; showing courage.
Hmm.
The toughest thing I have ever faced has been myself. Objectively. Honestly.
It’s not easy asking yourself tough questions. Is that what really happened? 
It’s even harder answering those tough question. Maybe. But maybe theres’s more to it. 
Knowing is easy.
Not knowing requires one to be brave.

Give

Life isn’t ours to keep. It’s only ours to give.

I have to remind myself of this. More often then I’d like to admit.

Sometimes I want to hold on. Refuse the world of my gifts. Play small. Have you notice me through a pathetic filter. Present my self to the world, instead of my Self.

Then I pause. And remember all that I still want to do: Run. Paint. Scream. Strum. Cry. Laugh. Beat. Paddle. Fall. Ride. Fly. Swim. Crawl. Meditate. Sing. Louder. LOUDER. Rest. Reflect. Reconsider. Pause. Sprint. Jump. Freeze. Change directions. Flip. Flop. Misunderstand. Fight. Whisper. Listen. Pray. Share. Stay. Look back. Return. Plan. Doubt. Overact. Be dramatic. Giggle. Swoon. Learn. Unlearn. Try. Roll. Bounce back. Take responsibility. Rejuvenate. Sparkle. Get up. Be heard. Focus. Take chances. Sit. Dance. Lead. Escape. Remember. Rejoice. Unite. Breathe. Write. Tell Stories. Unapologetically surrender.

Life isn’t yours to keep. It’s only yours to give.

So give it your all.

Voice

Voice /vois/ noun – Inner utterance of a guiding spirit.

 

There is a voice that calls to me.

It exist within me so I lend it my name, Billy.

But it is mostly beyond me so it has no name.

Me and beyond me, the two traits all things seem to share.
