This morning i woke up and felt a little sad.
Not for a certain reason, but just things like 'What's it all for' and 'What does it all mean', were going through my head.
It's not a really bad thing, because it sometimes makes you think about the more important things in this world. What those things really are? I don't know.
Don't get me wrong, this blog won't change into a 'I am going to save the world' thing, but i just feel like sharing some of my thoughts with you.
When i discovered the blog of A cat of impossible colour, i felt better immediately.
I don't know why exactly, but i think it's because i feel like this woman is so brave by doing what she's doing. Visit her blog to see what i am talking about.
When visiting her blog, i also saw this beautiful little badge, which says: One thing, be brave.
This little sentence makes you stop thinking about everything for a second and just stand still. Doesn't it?
It made me stop thinking about the sadness i was feeling. It made me realise how important it is to be brave. Not only for yourself, but maybe even more for everybody and everything around you (AND for this world).
When you are being brave and develop yourself in the very best way you can, you are also more capable of doing more for other people and i strongly feel that's what it should be about.
I don't mean that you should dedicate your whole life to doing good things for others and forget about 'yourself', but i think it would make us all stronger and stand still for more moments, which is never a bad thing.
I find it hard to explain and write down my feelings, but i thought i'd give it a try.
Hopefully you'll visit the great blog i mentioned before and it would be great if you also visit the being brave project and put the badge on your blog.
Before i forget, the being brave project is created by the author of this overwhelmingly great blog: Diary of a Self-Portrait.
Don't hestitate to visit if you didn't know it yet, it's absolutely worth it!
Personally, being brave means more to me than doing one thing every day that scares me. To me, it also means being positive, about your life and about this world, even when that seems impossible sometimes.
(Of course it means many other things, but at this point i find it too difficult to explain all of this. I also think everybody should fill this in for themselves...)
(By this, i don't mean to criticise the meaning of the creator of the project, because i think it's a great thing to do what Eleanor Roosevelt once advised us all to do, i only mean to say that i think this is not the only way to be brave...)
