Brave

Today when I was driving to Everett to go clean at my Grandma's, the song below really spoke to me. Sometimes I struggle with feeling like I am not interesting enough, not fun enough, not pretty enough, my house isn't decorated enough, not creative enough and so on. Those little insecurities always creep up on me. I find myself comparing myself to other ladies and wishing I was more like them. I'm not quite sure why I do that or how to stop but, I know I need to. Anyway, this is a good song. I like how it says "the way it always was, is no longer good enough". Now, isn't that true!
I am a little hesitant to post this, as I am being very, very transparent here. However, I did start this blog in place of doing old fashioned journaling so, what the heck.

Brave(Nichole Nordeman, Jay Joyce)
The gate is wide
The road is paved in moderation
The crowd is kind and quick to pull you in
Welcome to the middle ground
You're safe and sound and
Until now it's where I've been'
Cause it's been fear that ties me down to everything
But it's been love,
Your love, that cuts the strings
So long status quo
I think I just let go
You make me want to be brave
The way it always was
Is no longer good enough
You make me want to be brave
Brave, brave
I am small
And I speak when I'm spoken to
But I am willing to risk it all
I say Your name
Just Your name and I'm ready to jump
Even ready to fall...
Why did I take this vow of compromise?
Why did I try to keep it all inside?
So long status quo
I think I just let go
You make me want to be brave
The way it always was
Is no longer good enough
You make me want to be brave
Brave, brave
I've never known a fire that didn't begin with a flame
Every storm will start with just a drop of rain
But if you believe in me
That changes everything
So long, I'm gone
So long status quo
I think I just let go
You make me want to be brave
I wanna be brave
The way it always was
Is no longer good enough
You make me want to be brave
Brave, brave
