Be BRAVE!

Miyagi quote

Brave.

When I was younger, I loved the Karate Kid. But, the third movie sucked so bad, I never got through to the end. Last week, the movie aired on cable and I watched most of it for the first time. The quote above comes from Mr. Miyagi to Daniel in the final match and has set me on a new course.

I realized that a lot of lost opportunities in my life were because I was afraid of the opponent (whether a person or some perceived emotional threat).

So, I am stepping up and taking hold of the idea that it is okay to lose, as long as it isn’t because I lost to my own fears.

Anyone else out there struggle with giving in to your fears? Join me and be brave together…

Here’s a little inspiration if you have trouble finding your brave.

 

You can be amazing
You can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug
You can be the outcast
Or be the backlash of somebody’s lack of love
Or you can start speaking up
Nothing’s gonna hurt you the way that words do
When they settle ‘neath your skin
Kept on the inside and no sunlight
Sometimes a shadow wins
But I wonder what would happen if you

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave…

Everybody’s been there,
Everybody’s been stared down by the enemy
Fallen for the fear
And done some disappearing,
Bow down to the mighty
Don’t run, stop holding your tongue
Maybe there’s a way out of the cage where you live
Maybe one of these days you can let the light in
Show me how big your brave is

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

And since your history of silence
Won’t do you any good,
Did you think it would?
Let your words be anything but empty
Why don’t you tell them the truth?

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you…

Simply Put- How big has your brave been?
