As I was writing about how brave my son Braedon was in facing his second life-threatening illness in his short 18 years here on earth, I was reminded that he wasn't just brave in how he faced his illness. He was brave in how he lived his life too.
9 days after Braedon died I stood before an overflowing crowd that spilled out of the room and into the adjacent foyer. My voice was cracked, I couldn't feel my legs and I wondered how they were holding me up but I made an important promise to Braedon that day in front of our family and friends.
I promised to take the lead from Braedon and be brave with my life. I promised to be #bravelikebraedon .
My 100 Brave Things Project was born from that promise. I wanted to be very purposeful in flexing my braving muscles. I didn't want to waste the very thing that was taken from Braedon; the gift of life and time to wake .
It's how I get to show others that our fear, our traumas and even our grief don't have to hold us back in life.
We are resilient beings, our capacity is limitless. Every single one of us is braver, stronger and more courageous than we've ever imagined.
IT STARTED WITH A PROMISE
I MADE TO MY SON AT HIS FUNERAL. I PROMISED TO
BE BRAVE WITH MY LIFE.
