A year of brave

This year I’m going to be BRAVE.

Sometimes BRAVE means doing something brand new, sometimes it means doing that thing you’ve been putting off for months.

Every Sunday (or so) I want to post about something BRAVE-ish I’ve done recently – to keep myself accountable to actually DO something AND to remind you being brave is not always lion taming and hang-gliding.

Last week:

I committed to a parttime job as the first step toward being able to leave my current day job.

I still don’t know where I’m going to be working, how I’m going to be making money in 6 months. But always before I could talk myself out of saying yes to opportunities or taking chances that may be hard because I was sure it wouldn’t work out anyway.

But in this case, I know I want to leave my current day job. I know I can’t do that job plus the parttime job both long term (too much). SO I said YES to the parttime job to light that fire under me to keep moving in that direction. Committing to this (little tiny) step is in the BRAVE direction to change my job.

(For those of you concerned about my health and sanity, the parttime job is only really 5 hours/week or so right now. I really will be fine).

I’ll tell you all about it once I get everything else sorted out.

What brave thing did you do this week?

    Good for you!

    I said yes when someone asked me if I could give them a workshop about photography. I have been asked before, but I never dared too, always felt I wasn’t good enough to be teaching someone else. But this time I said “yes”. And I am looking forward to it so much! I feel very brave 😀

    Have a great Sunday!

    Well done, I love this concept. So often I do exactly the same and convince myself that I shouldn’t do something because it would be hard or because I’m basically scared. I can’t really think of anything brave I’ve done this particular week but will definately be taking your advice to push myself out of my comfort zone this coming week and DO something brave.

    Loving your blog & have a great weekend x :)
