It goes everywhere with me. It was inspired by something Elizabeth Gilbert shared on Facebook a few weeks ago.
The post-it note simply says: “Brave Vs. Automatic”. It reminds me to choose the brave course of action, as opposed to the easiest.
Maybe for some people, getting shit done comes naturally. It does not for me. Or it has not up until this point. I am terrible with emails. I hate checking my bank account and wince the second before the ATM spits out my little paper receipt. I have to fight to find the motivation to get up most mornings and do the things that are important to me. Every time I do those things (like editing a new song or posting a blog that might make my mom frown), my chest opens up and I feel like a million bucks. Like nothing can touch me because BAM. I’m brave.Sometimes I just need a little reminding. So I’m sharing it here. Hope it inspires you to do a lil’ something ballsy this fine day.
