Rambling Reflections from a Jet-Lagged Writer  

It’s almost 5am. I’ve been up since 2am. I did my hair and my makeup. I took a shower and am all packed up. The bus across the mountains doesn’t leave for another five hours but I am ready with my jacket and shoes on and my purse across my shoulder. By the time I finish this, I will be on the bus.

 I’ve been gone for nine days. I can’t wait to get home and see my family.

Surrender Makes Me Brave

Today, I opened a book I had purchased a few months ago at a writers’ conference. The author had scribbled out my name and underneath, “Be Brave.”

I’ve been struggling with that lately. So I laughed. I may have almost snorted out my almond milk hot chocolate.

There’s only one way I know how to be brave. And it comes via surrender.
