What does it mean to be brave? Is it going for what you want? Is it going beyond that? In our house, we love the movie Brave. Having daughters I worry sometimes that they are going to miss the message of bravery in the movie and instead just learn to defy their mother every chance they get. For now, though, they just love Merida’s bouncy red hair and the look she gets on her face when she’s focusing in on a target. They’re still very young.
I came across this video today. It spoke to me. I was shocked to hear the statistics about women, bravery, and believing in oneself. I want to leave this link here so that I can return to it now and then as a reminder to be brave and to raise my daughters to be truly brave.
