You, Brave

So today is New Year’s day.

Again.

In past years, this has traditionally been the day I run headlong towards the newly arriving year, eagerly anticipating a windfall of riches that – eerily – look exactly like all the things I feel the overrated departing year has failed to provide.

Not surprisingly, it doesn’t take long for the anticipation to give way to the boredom of waiting. And waiting. And waiting.

So this year I thought I might try a different approach.

In one of my favorite books, “The Unmistakable Touch of Grace” by Cheryl Richardson, she advises against making a “Santa wish list” in favor of inviting the inner courage and strength to walk through even the toughest life challenges with, well, grace.

To shore up my resolve (and make it public just in case the wish list starts to look a bit too enticing again) I thought I would blog about it here.

I also thought I would share the song that has inspired this unexpected shift – “Brave” by the lovely and courageous Sara Bareilles.

LISTEN TO “BRAVE”

 

You, Brave
