BE BRAVE, otherwise known as "Do One Thing Every Day That Scares You", is the title of the month-long project inspired by Jessie. I am participating daily for a month. Today is Day 7.
Today I didn't really do anything new per se that was scary. Just persevering through the whole day doing what I'd committed myself to doing has been enough for me, and did certainly involve some bravery:
1) Not eating any sugar or refined carbohydrates.
2) Not drinking any alcohol.
3) Getting 8 hours of sleep.
I woke up with a migraine, and I'm sure I'm just getting used to these newer healthier behaviors. It was much easier to talk about it and make a video of it than to do it.
I also had a big conflict in a relationship, and stood up for myself again, which is now feeling like a default choice instead of some unusual scary thing that I have to rise up to do. I like that.
I didn't expect today to be a walk in the park and it wasn't. But that's ok. I do feel proud of myself, and I appreciate everyone's support, which really encouraged me today and helped to get me through.
Thank you all for being AMAZING!
