Let’s keep it real. There may or may not have been a snake(s) in that field…. We will never know.
FACT about me. I am NOT brave. Not in an obvious way that is. I cry when getting shots, I jumped around like a LOON to scare away any snakes in this picture and I normally would NEVER be brave enough to wear a hat like this. I am a Plain Jane. I order what I know I’ll like at restaurants, am too nervous to online shop, and try to avoid change at all costs.
BUT I got a wave of bravery before this session. I had a feeling of wanting to try something new. NEW!? ME?! Yes! I went to Target and bought a hat! Now, this may not seem like such a big deal but I think it’s a sign. You see it didn’t just stop there. Last week I spontaneously decided to get my flu shot! By myself!? I sat down at a flu clinic after school, told myself that I was braver than I think and that I could do this and then… I did!
I think the winds are changing for me and I’m not sure where it will stop but I’m grateful. I’m grateful that God is changing my heart and pressing pause in my brain when I want to hold myself back because I’m scared of what others will think. I’m grateful for these gentle pushes of “Go for it!” and “Just try – you won’t regret it!”. These may be small steps but I’m proud of myself and I’m excited for putting on a hat and stepping out of my comfort zone.
For anyone in the Baltimore area who is coming to minis get excited because this is our location!! And don’t worry, there is no threat of snakes. 🙂
