It seems we spend all of our time doing two things- living and waiting to live.
If you are like us, that waiting to live category is comprised of a few things that make us uncomfortable, things that require courage to act. For us it means that we have dreams we want to see realized, conversations that we need to have and decisions we have been avoiding.
Sometimes realizing how significant an action is makes it harder to accomplish. We become paralyzed from acting because starting feels risky. The urgency of the day to day demands become the easiest to achieve. Days, months and even years go by with the same opportunities standing in front of us- waiting to be chosen.
What we all seem to have in common is that we need a nudge. A nudge to get us out of our ruts and routines so that we can be reminded to risk bravely.
At MOPS we believe that you were meant to live deeply and so we have created this year’s theme to inspire you to choose the extraordinary.
Be you, Bravely is designed to help us become more ourselves. To remind us that courage is always worth it and that we are all in this together. Cheering each other on toward our futures is the gift of community at MOPS.
We are so excited to journey alongside you this year as we ask one another what it means to “Be you, Bravely.”
You want one of these shirts, don't you?
We couldn't wait to get our hands on them either. Head to our online store and click theme. The shirt is listed at the bottom.
By the way...
Our kind friends at a small print shop helped us make these shirts. They'd be happy to help you make shirts for you as well. (Just not the shirt in the video, those you have to buy from us.)
There are lots of ways to join us as we live bravely this next year.
Hello, Darling blog
We'll be here, sharing stories of courage. Encouraging each other. Reminding one another, that the little voice within our soul beckoning us to something more is real, and worth listening to. There will be videos, interviews and real-life accounts of courage.
When you beocme a MOPS member you join the tribe of women raising the world together. This year's membership focuses on the courage to Be you, Bravely. The welcome kit includes A Courage Key - a charm that you can wear on a necklace to help you embrace your inner courage, and then pass on to another woman when they need the reminder more than you do. Plus, you'll receive lots of other great benefits in the welcome kit and throughout the year.
(Pssssst. Want to know more about those courage keys?)
