When it comes to changing your life, if you aren't scared, then you are doing something wrong. - Jen Sincero
Today's prompt for NaBloPoMo is: When is the last time you did something brave?
Reading the the posts from everyone that is blogging this month were so inspiring. My story of doing something brave my not be monumental to others but it was a huge step for me. I grew up in a very small town in the south. Lovely town, but the yearning for something bigger could not be suppressed. So, when the opportunity presented itself, I just packed up and moved to a much larger city in a neighboring state. I knew no one here and had only visited the city twice in my lifetime, but I am slowly forging ahead and making this my home.
I came across this article but one of my new favorite authors Jen Sincero over on the Huffington Post and she can say it much more eloquently than I can. Jen Sincero is the author of the book," You are a Badass, How to Stop Douiibting Your Greatness and Living an Awesome Life." I am listening to the audio version and had to stop during the first chapter and order the book because I want to be able to write it in and takes notes on the pages. One of the takeaways from this article for me is: "The key to growth is acknowledging your fear of the unknown and jumping in anyway."
