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 bit the bullet and reached out to potential contributors for a new (huge) blogging ecourse I’m working on.

Asking for help is always scary – no matter what it’s for.

I’ve worked on my ‘pitch’ email – but personalized it for each person.

I’ve brainstormed how to make this as easy as possible for each contributor.

I’ve specified what is in it for each of them.

I feel like I’ve done everything I can … . but it’s still a scary thing to say, “Please help me” and be shot down.

I’ve emailed 4 different contributors and have not been shot down yet …. but still.

Maybe set my sights higher this week?

What brave thing have you done in the last few weeks?

    Social Security had me go in for a back examination and I was beyond nervous. I really, REALLY, really wanted to cancel. But I braved the appointment, went in and was checked over by a doctor. Sadly he couldn’t give me any information, since SS paid for the examination, so I have no idea if my results were good or bad but I did recognize some lower back pain/tingling and left leg weakness. I kind of HAD to go in, but I could have canceled. I didn’t. I was nervous, scared and filled with anxiety. Jen held my hand, helped me breathe deeply in and out and I DID IT. <3

    I know how scary asking someone for help can be, Amy. I can't imagine anyone NOT wanting to help you, though! *hug* I'm glad you're getting lots of positive results. :D
