According to the dictionary, brave means:
ready to face and endure danger or pain; showing courage
To me, brave means so much more than that. Brave means deciding to get out of bed in the morning when you feel intense depression. Brave means choosing to stand for what is right, even when you face intense oppression. Brave means being you, being unapologetic about who you are and what you stand for.
As someone who has long been silenced by mental illness, I have been told by many that I am so "brave." Often times I feel anything but brave.
I urge you all to brave. Be unapologetically you. Don't let the pressure of others silence you from being who you truly are. Shine your light in darkness.
Today's shirt emphasizes being brave. We can all be brave together. I am so pleased to have partnered with Grace Holter of Hello, Grace today. I ABSOLUTELY love her products and the message behind them. I am rocking her new line and I love it. The shirts are handprinted and super soft, plus sooo cute!
