It’s rodeo time here in Santa Fe, which means bulls and barrels and roundups aplenty. But today, I’m thinking about a roundup of a different kind, since I’ve had the honor of hosting this month’s Self-Discovery, Word by Word series. Today, thanks to all of these layered, wise, and soul-searching posts, I’m thinking about bravery.
Bravery, as you’ll see, looks different for each of us; its particulars vary in accordance with who we are, how we live, what we need. And yet many of us have sought to embody bravery for the same purpose: to value and present our authentic selves; to tolerate and find comfort within the very real delineations of our identity.
(Who knew it took so much courage just to be real?)
Thanks again to all those who took the time to craft such beautiful posts. Happy reading!
