What Are Your Life’s Bravest Moments?

Man_climbing_on_mountainLast night, on Your Caregiving Journey, our conversation drifted to a discussion about bravery. We have many brave moments in our lives, which makes me wonder about your brave moments.

We’re brave when we stay during difficult times, when we make a commitment that’s right for us, when we say “No” for the first time to a request, when we publicly tell our story, when we take risk without really knowing how we will land.

What are your life’s bravest moments? Please share in our comments section, below.

    I would say that my bravest moment so far in my life was when I had to make the decision to turn off my Mom’s breathing machine. She’d had a massive heart attack, and I knew she didn’t wish to be kept alive with machines. My Dad was so broken up that he couldn’t say the words, so I had to.

      Hi Patty-I’m not sure you can be braver than that. I can only imagine how difficult and heartbreaking the situation was. That’s truly a situation where the right decision just can’t feel right.
