I don't read a lot of blogs, even though I myself like to blog on occasion.  I have a couple of friends whose blogs I read fairly regularly.  Today I read one of my friend's blogs, and she had a link to 5 minute Fridays over at  The idea behind 5 minute Fridays is you get a topic and blog about it for 5 minutes.  Lol. (I am laughing out loud because I just explained something that is kind of self explanatory.) Anyhoo I thought it looked interesting.  So, even though it is Sunday, I am going to participate.

 This past Friday's topic was "Brave."  This brings up many things in my mind.  Funny enough, the first thing it brought to mind is a new movie coming out by Pixar called "Brave." The previews for it looked very interesting especially since the hero in the story is actually a heroine with long flowing red hair.  I researched it a little bit, and was a little disappointed when I found out it was more like a fairy tale in Disney fashion than most of the original material Pixar has produced in the past. (I am not against Disney.  I was just excited at the prospect of something original by Pixar.  This will be their first film where the protagonist is a female.)   Anyhoo, back to the topic of brave.  At the moment, the characteristic of bravery is something I don't think describes me very much.  I am living in a new place, with new people, and a new routine.  It is a very difficult thing, and I don't feel very brave.  I guess it requires some bravery to not totally give up, but to keep going.  However, if there is an emotion connected with being brave, I ain't feeling it.

(5 minutes up)


  1. Sometimes I think bravery is something as simple as waking up each morning and asking God to get you through the day and then going to bed thanking Him for helping you through it...only to get up again and face the world for another day. I'd venture a guess you're probably a lot more brave than you think.

    Blessings to you.

  2. I think we will only see ourselves as brave when we look back over our shoulder. Because being brave, being courageous is in the doing each day whatever comes the best way we can. (Not as I wrote in my post being afraid to even try)

  3. I agree with the ladies are braver than you give yourself credit for, and sometimes you may not feel brave, but that doesn't mean you aren't brave.
