These simple prompts were placed here at the end of the last retreat I led. It seems simple enough, right? Or is it? We all want to be brave, but we don't often think we can be. Brave can seem like such a gigantic word with an even more intimidating meaning.
Remember the infamous quote from the movie WE BOUGHT A ZOO? "You know, sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it." Benjamin Mee There is so much real hard truth here. Do you have the courage to be embarrassed to risk something bigger being received on the other end?
That brings us to the next word. BREATHE. It seems simple. It sounds simple to some, though terrifying to others. Though in all proven paths when we pause to take a deep breath in any situation, we can change a moment into one of acceptance after that deep breath. Our body welcomes it, and our mind embraces the clarity that it brings. One breath creates a pause in all other anxieties that we may be experiencing. One breath changes the story. One breath changes our step forward.
RISE. Rise. Do you let yourself rise up? Do you need permission? I am giving it to you.
Rise in the moment.
Rise in the bravery that is within you.
Rise to live free. Rise to live true.
Rise to live in your power, voice, and story!
Be brave. Breathe. Rise.
