Day 288: Daring to be brave

What does it take to be brave with one's life? Who do I have to be, to be brave in my life?

I believe the access to being brave with one's life is knowing that we are wholehearted. 

When we are wholehearted, we are free from judgement, full of compassion, filled with delight, overflowing with optimism.

We are connected to the beauty of the universe and have an inner knowing that all is transient, all is impermanent. We have the audacity to be life's best friend and just like the sun, we rise and we show-up. 

When we are free from judgement, we are free from our own judgement. We may have judgement and opinions however we release ourselves from the grip of the judgement and opinion. We are curious, we dig deep, we enquire on why we have the judgements and opinions; and we untangle ourselves free.

We have the opportunity to be brave in every moment. The mastery of bravery is exercised through our daily choices.

Choosing gratitude.

Choosing patience.

Choosing compassion.

Choosing joy.

Choosing inspiration.

Choosing empathy.

Choosing our thoughts.

These choices build on our experience of being wholehearted or they chip away at our experience of being wholehearted.

When we are wholehearted for ourselves, we dare to be brave with our life. 

I have been asking myself "If anything is possible, what is it that I truly want to do right now?".

I've been dancing around the question for months yet always knowing what it is that I truly wanted. 

I've been timid about how I want my life to unfold - for fear of disappointment and failure.

I decided it was time to let go of being timid and be brave. 

Daring greatly is daring to be brave.
