What is brave?

Hugging someone you don’t know.

Waiting for someone to finish their sentence.

Saying you are wrong.

Entering a room full of people you have met only a few times.

Telling the truth and suffering the consequences.

Trying even as you are failing.

Forgiving those who need it most.

Remembering perfection is momentary.

Knowing that perfection is unnecessary.

Forgiving yourself.

Doing anything of critical importance without seeking recognition.

Being open and honest.

A list to remind myself that everyday we do important acts of love for each other and ourself.
