I am Brave Enough for Today...
Seven years ago, I developed a complex cardiac disorder.
It put me out of commission for quite a while.
Things are finally stabilizing at a "new normal".
I've been sidelined for too long.
I've become complacent.
Sitting on the sidelines is no fun.
Nothing really good happens there.
Recently I've been asking myself some questions...
• Am I brave enough to conquer my demons?
• Am I brave enough to leave my comfort zone?
• Am I brave enough to chase my dreams?
• Am I ready for change?
I have a lot of things on my Bucket List.
I need to get moving again.
To push myself.
To try out this new normal.
To get through these self- imposed limits.
I'm not there yet.
Many people with serious health issues say fighting the illness changed their lives.
I am one of them.
This battle has given me a confidence I never knew existed.
Kept my anxiety at bay.
Brought me outside of my comfort zone.
Pushed me beyond expectations.
Changed the way I viewed life.
Helped define who I am.
I became brave.
Yet I am afraid.
Terrified to stop being brave.
What will happen to me then?
No matter what---I need to be brave enough for today
Once I realized that I was Brave Enough...
It's A Great Day To Be Alive...

I don't think you'll ever stop being brave. You've proven that in post after post. Given what you have been through, you are a true inspiration to have come this far and I admire you for never wavering in your support of yourself and others! And I thought my bypass operation was a big deal :). Thank you for your continued inspiration!
