When I watch my daughter strut around the playground, I think: this is how I want to live: fully and boldly. She believes that everything is an adventure. And isn't it? Why should I view living in this beautiful world as anything other than an adventure? So, I find myself most afternoons whizzing down the tallest slide right behind her.
The other day Stephanie Schriock, President of Emily's List, said running for office is the bravest thing anyone can do, especially when you don't meet the stereotype for being a candidate. Her words got me thinking about how bravery has manifested for me and for those I love. It made me think about how everyday acts of valor and fearlessness can change the world.
