“There are so many ways to be brave in this world. Sometimes bravery involves laying down your life for something bigger than yourself, or for someone else. Sometimes it involves giving up everything you have ever known, or everyone you have ever loved, for the sake of something greater.
But sometimes it doesn’t.
Sometimes it is nothing more than gritting your teeth through pain, and the work of every day, the slow walk toward a better life.”
― Veronica Roth
Every day we have a choice. Do we go on the way things are, or do we stand up to our life and say we want more? Bravery isn’t always about doing something others have a hard time doing. Sometimes bravery is looking your own life in the eyes and being strong enough to stand up and turn it into everything you want it to be despite what odds are against you.
