On Being Brave ...

I read the following on an email from Brave Girls Club, its rather lovely so thought I'd share it with you....You can sign into this site and receive lovely messages everyday...

Dear Courageous Girl,

Please don't for one minute think that you are not courageous just because you are afraid. Please do not minimize your power just because you are feeling a little lost. Please do not believe that you are not on the right track just because you are in a bit of a slump....and most of all, please do not EVER think that you are the only one who has hard days, rotten days, weak days and even days when you feel like you have messed up everything, gone backwards or that all is lost. Even your greatest heroes and role models have days just like you have.

These feelings will pass. If all you can do is HOPE that these feelings will pass, it will be enough. Never lose hope. You made it to now, and you will make it to tomorrow. The clouds will blow over, the sunshine will come again and you will have learned a few new lessons along the way. BEING BRAVE does not mean that you do not sometimes feel scared, weak and just means you keep going anyway.....and that is what you do best.

You can do this, really can. Keep going........don't stop now!
You are so loved!

... very wise words I think!

 Now to business as it were, I have just this moment updated the NZ Paper Chase Blog so I hope you will pop over and check out the latest challenge brought to us by the lovely Pam Nelson.
 Just to tempt you take a peek at Pam's super page...

Maybe tomorrow I will be a 'brave girl' and get my teeth into something crafty...its been quite a while now!!

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
