Some of you may remember the Self Discovery Word by Word series–brain child of Dr. Ashley Solomon at Nourishing the Soul—from my post on change a couple months back. Well, this month I have the honor of hosting this ongoing series, and the word I’ve chosen to focus on is bravery. Although I’ve written about this word before, particularly in reference to the process of aging, I wanted to examine it again—to let it bounce around my brain so that I could observe its path and study its associations. Because when you think about it, life requires a good deal of bravery, and it’s likely we rise to the occasion on a regular basis, whether or not we know it.
The purpose of Ashley’s SDWW series is to encourage the blogging community to engage in self-reflection as it unites and huddles around a particular word. You can learn more about the series here. And if you’d like to participate this month—and yes, of course you should!–here is what you can do:
- Write a post on your blog about the word bravery.
- Include the SDWW icon in your post, so that you can identify yourself as a participant, and so that we can find each other in the great big web!
- To ensure that I know about your post, email or tweet me the link. Or, you can post it on the Body and the Brood Facebook page. But however you do it, be sure you notify me by Friday, June 17th (can you believe it’s already June?). I’ll link to all of your posts on Tuesday, June 21.
