Bravery is…

Standing up when you’re afraid.

Speaking up for the voiceless.

Standing out of a crowd.

Shipping your best work, even when you are not ready.

Laboring when no one is watching.

A posture: People like us do stuff like this.

Believing in a vision, a dream or movement.

Shunning non-believers.

Pushing through the dip.

Finding a place to put the tired.

Facing Resistance.

Leaning in.

Responding to stress.

Making change happen.


Listening, really listening.

Making things better for someone (not everyone).

Being vulnerable.

Exploring edges, going somewhere you have never gone before.



And most of all…

Showing up, every day.
