Bloganuary 2, 2023: How are you brave?

For the month of January, I’m participating in Bloganuary, a daily blogging challenge.

Today’s Bloganuary prompt:

How are you brave?

If this had been a prompt from last year’s Bloganuary, I’m sure I would have reflected on living unapologetically as a lesbian. I work hard to normalize it, because it’s indeed still a challenge to be out in certain situations, places, and conversations. There are still times that I find the need to be courageous.

But it’s no longer last year. So much has changed in the past 12 months. I’m a parent now, and how I’m brave shows up in a very different way.

Something I’m currently working on is surrendering to the fact that I have very little idea of what I’m actually doing, as I help to raise these 2 beautiful kids. Instead of any practical knowledge, I must rely on my gut, my instinct, my Knowing.

Doing so is scary. And yet, I’m still here.


Follow along and make memories.

  1. Congratulations on becoming a parent, Mindy. I agree with Ganga. Being a parent is a completely different ball game and all kinds of scary that takes every ounce of bravery you can muster because (suddenly) you’re the grown-up. You put your heart and soul into it and the beauty of all this effort is that it’s all worth it – every day, every moment, every beat of your heart. It’s the best job I ever undertook.
