Who is Brave?

Who is Brave?

via Daily Prompt: Brave

Do you know who I think is brave?

Me.

And if you think I’m being arrogant, then you can leave now.

Because I do things that are brave 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

And it’s taken me a long time to see that.

To own that.

And what are these heroic acts, you ask?

I get out of bed.

I haven’t always been able to do that.

So now I celebrate it.

I fuel my body with food and water.

I’ve deprived it for so long.

So it’s only fair to make it up to myself.

I think about my future.

I’m 29 and I didn’t think I’d make it past 20.

The thought of living can be paralyzing.

But I do it anyway.

Celebrating bravery requires the ability to love yourself.

Even if it’s only for small moments.

My moments are adding up.

Do you know who I think is brave?

Me!
