Do You Dare? An Anthem For The Brave…
Dear brave, wonderful and unique YOU…
Do you dare to smile when others frown? To believe when others doubt and to love when others fear?
Will you find the courage to step off of the beaten track? To create your own path and in doing so, lead the way for others too afraid to do the same?
Can you break down all thoughts of limitations, to ensure you never settle for anything less than you’re absolutely worth?
Will you push through all expectation, all fear of criticism, judgment and failure…to recognize that you are already enough, exactly as you are?
Can you LOVE with everything you’ve got? Pour love into everything you do; your words, your thoughts, your everyday choices and actions? Will you commit to loving others in the way you want to be loved?
Are you ready to give yourself permission to feel the way you want to feel? To laugh loudly when you feel like laughing, and to not be afraid to cry when you feel like crying?
Are you ready to surround yourself with people who uplift and inspire you? To be someone you would want to spend time with?
Can you find the strength to let go of the past and to turn old wounds into wisdom? Are you prepared to release your pain and to see it for exactly what it is – a lesson, but NOT your life?
Will you make the people you meet in your life feel all the more loved and special as a result of having met you?
Do you strive to reflect the world you want to see around you? To live your life with the powerful knowledge that your reality is what you make of it?
Will you be truthful? But most importantly of all, will you always remain true to yourself?
Will you remember to say thank-you at every opportunity? And no matter how bad the world may treat you, to look for gratitude in every experience that comes your way?
Above all else – do you dare to BE BRAVE? Brave enough to put aside your fears and to make every one of your dreams come true? Because only YOU, brave friend, can make that happen.
This is my hope for you.
