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.
