5 Minute Friday: Brave

It’s 5 Minute Friday time! The rules:
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..
This week’s topic was brave, which is something I’ve thought a lot about while our family has been separated. So, here goes…

Brave is putting yourself out there. When it would be easier to curl up in a ball and hide in your room, you don’t. You get out in the sunshine, talk to people, face your fears. You admit when you need help doing so, and you seek out that help. 

Brave is a 2 year old boy whose world is turned upside down, but still faces each day with a sunny, stubborn, independent and excited disposition. Brave is a father who is willing to be separated from his family for a little while because the short term sacrifice will benefit them in the long run. Brave is the mother who works diligently to keep that family connected while they are physically apart. 
It’s not easy to be brave, but the payoff is usually pretty amazing. If you can push past the pounding heart to find what’s on the other side, you’ll see it’s all worth it.
