Listening & Brave-Day 3, #Reverb13

Today I lucked out a bit. The writing prompts for today work really well together. This makes me happy.

What does your heart have to tell you?

and

What was the bravest thing you did in 2013?

Bravery is often in the small things, the things we don’t look at under the harsh light of the day that is, right now, so very short. Part of it, possibly all of it, is listening to your heart ,or your gut, maybe, or some other metaphorically assigned body part that is in charge of making you make things happen.

The bravest thing I did this year? I decided to live. My heart told me to, even though it was sobbing from pain because everything surrounding that particular moment of life felt so desperately hard. I had the means and almost the motivation, but there was something quiet and small that said no.

So I listened.
