Day 24: We Dared

We dared:

To take back control of our emotions after our home had been invaded.

We dared:

To take control of our fear.

We dared:

To step out of our comfort zone and make changes in our lives.

We dared:

To move away from family and emotional support for the safety of our children.

We dared:

To take a leap of faith; to take a chance that our choice was the right one.

We dared:

To trust one one another and to support each other.

We dared:

To make the choice that we believed was right even though others were against it.

We dared.

    1. It is. I have found, though, that there are some who are not always willing to make big changes in their lives – especially if they are too comfortable with where they are.


  1. Thanks for sharing, Colline. Change is a hard thing, especially when others may not understand. The important thing is finding peace in the process!

  2. Everyone has to do what is best for their family even when others disagree. I think you made a brave choice to take on such an enormous move and life-style change. Congrats.


  3. I love the way you set up the wording for day 24 – and the umph! felt was awesome.
    And for us, one thing “we dared” with our relocating – well we dared to not put it off and wait for a more convenient or dollar friendly time – instead – we moved when we needed to and I feel as we still reap the fruits of being active (if that makes sense)



    1. Thank you so much for the compliment Yvette.
      As to daring to relocate even though it was not ‘dollar friendly’ – I can understand completely. If you had waited, you may have lost your courage to dare.


      1. Hi – well it could have been more dollar friendly for us if we would have waited six mote more months – but sometimes as we know – life is not about the bottom line of $ – sometimes we do what we gotta do because our gut tells us when…
        oh, and another thing I just love about the way you set up the wording here – well the literary style you use tells so much – but in fresh way – in these bulleted items that reveal so much. 🙂

        1. Thank you Yvette. I chose to write this post in this way as I was thinking back to the schoolyard and the dares that are often given there (I dare you to …). My post is almost a response to those types of dares – and saying that I did dare.

          1. ooo – I like it even more – and thanks for that extra tidbit. and again, not to sound too cheesy, but I really like the style with it.
            also, not sure if you ever heard if the Switchfoot song called “Dare you to move” – not the same exact thing, but fits in a bit =- here is the link…
