It’s Be Brave Friday today and truth is that so many people are being brave every damn day.
Being brave is about continuing after massive loss.
Being brave is about living in a world that might be pressing you down.
Being brave is going after your dreams.
Being brave is about being who you are — open, vulnerable, flawed, and shiny.
Being brave is about telling your truths and story despite trolls and ridicule.
Being brave is sometimes dealing with just an annoying email that makes your heart sink.
I hope we can all hold each other up, grab each other’s hands and make something good.
If you’ve read my Be Brave Friday posts before, you know I have a hard time sharing my art because … parents. It always makes me feel so vulnerable.
Anyway, this is a painting that I’m making prints of and sending some out to my patrons who help me out and read my unpublished stories on Patreon. I hope you like it okay. I know it’s not a lot of color.
And I hope you might hang out with Shaun and I for a bit tonight (7 p.m. EST) on LOVING THE STRANGE (on Facebook/YouTube/Twitter).
I should really make it’s own reminder post, but I’m not feeling super brave about that. Put your brave on my friends. We’ve got this, right?
Every weekday on Facebook/Instagram/Twitter, I share insight/thoughts/inspiration from our two dogs and three cats. If you want to follow me on any of those places? It’d be great.
Here’s today’s, courtesy of Sparty Dog.
Whatever you used to be, used to think?
That doesn’t need to matter anymore.
Carve out who you want to be right now.
Create the story you want to live.
The future is still out there, ready for you to soar into it.
And choose love & treats. Always.
LET’S HANG OUT!

And one of our newest DOGS ARE SMARTER THAN PEOPLE episode is about fear setting and how being swallowed by a whale is bad ass.
And Carrie has new books out! Yay!
