Brave | Why Girls Are Weird

Monday, January 30, 2012



So yesterday was kind of a bummer of a day.

I saw Dustin and that was hard.

I found out something about my dad that made me sad.

And then I found out some disappointing news.

I was about ready to throw in the towel and just give up on the day.

But then.

I did something brave.

I can't decide on whether I want the something brave to be something little or something HUGE.

Anyway, I'm glad that you DID something to make the day better. There is so much strength in that.
