I like the words to her song, Brave. I used to be brave. But I'm not anymore. I stopped being brave when I realized that it was not productive. When you are not perceived as brave, but something negative, then it's not worth it. However, the words of this song have really inspired me lately, got me thinking, made me sit up and take notice...
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
Until now it's where I've been cause it's been fear that ties me down to everything
But it's been love, You're 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
I just really like Nicole Nordeman's music. The words sound like something I want to write! She's brave. I want to be brave now. Perhaps it's time to let my credibility stand for itself. Perhaps it's time to speak up, be brave...
don't chicken out...
ok, I'll be brave....
ps. Don't take a "vow of compromise"
