    The first thing I thought of when I thought brave was that Sarah Bareilles song "Brave" "Say what you wanna say And let the words fall out Honestly, I wanna see you be brave" Which is about speaking out and standing up for what you think is right instead of remaining silent and passive. I think this sentiment applies to far more than words, though. It's about not lying down and taking it, even when it would be easier to remain silent, inactive, and let something consume you. Being brave is about gathering the willpower to move life in the direction you want it to go, regardless of whatever forces are working against you. Fighting as hard as you can for what you want.

    Oddly enough, I was reading a book the other day and read something about just what is brave ... and it was perfect for me. I will look for the book (and edit this post when I find it) but in the meantime, I googled with a rough paraphrase and found this: "Being brave isn't the absence of fear. Being brave is having that fear but finding a way through it." Bear Gryll
