In the middle of all this, my friend Mia shared Sara Bareilles newest music video with me. I’ve heard the song before, but hadn’t seen the video. I watched it the first time as I sat alone in the Tucson Airport waiting on my luggage. I laughed. I cried. And I laughed some more. I want to be brave. I want to be a brave friend. I want to be a brave wife. I want to be a brave parent. I want to worry less about the world thinks and more about what my heart tells me.
We choose to quit jobs, get married, adopt an animal, but of course there are many life events we don’t choose—a divorce, an accidental pregnancy, or the death of a loved one. Yet we can still choose how we deal with and react to these occurrences in our lives.
I chose to be happy.
What about you? What are you going to choose to be?
