January: The Month of Bravery

We just launched a new community-based platform with Intention Inspired, and our focus on January has been completing our first group journey together: 30 days of Bravery.

This particular course changed my entire life. I'm not kidding.

I found it one night while playing around on social media. I stumbled across this particular clip and the next thing I know I'm signing up to "open the door to new possibilities in my life"

So how does it work? Well every single day there's a different intention, focus, micro-challenge, and reflection. The idea is that you set a goal, and every day for 30 days you flex your brave muscles. You are working towards a goal, yes, but more importantly you are working on yourself, on developing your understanding and love of yourself.

I remember that when I first found this course two years ago and completed Day 5 - I am Enough - it inspired me enough to start this entire website, and funneled my current mission statement:

What's been incredible for me to witness with the launch of the new space is not only being able to go through the series again and my own self-discoveries and A-HA moments, but also the same for others. I've seen one of my best friends on this planet realise that loving herself is key, I've seen someone who is really significant in my life realise that he is already his own hero by everyday embodying and consciously being the best version of himself that he can be, I've seen another woman I love help to remind me of the power in the present moment and to stop projecting my fears of the past into the future. Every day I have seen people log on and devote time, effort and energy to themselves, realise that they are worth it. I've seen their growth, I've witnessed their expansion, and it's only been 9 days!

It all just makes excited for what's to come. I was having a conversation with Maylene earlier this week (one of the amazing people I work with at Intention Inspired) and she asked me how it was all going for me, and I said overall it's going well but what I'm struggling with is this vision that I have for the community and the reality of it all. I need to realise that we don't have to have every single person on the entire planet enrolled in 30 days of Bravery to make a difference, that in all honesty if it touches one person's life and allows them to grow and love themselves a little bit more than that's enough, and I have the chance to witness that already within the platform. So that's Enough. I am Enough. We are all Enough <3
