I always tell my daughter how much I admire her bravery. I consider myself to be confident, but she is a different story. She doesn't think about what others will think, she just jumps in and does. I have lived my life in a very calculated way. I don't take risks and I am afraid of being embarrassed. Ella is the polar opposite.
I scrapped about her bravery and how it connects to my life.
I chose the picture of her as goalie because you have to be brave to stand in there and take shots. She decided overnight that she wanted to be a goalie and never looked back. I used the cards with the rays because bravery literally shines from within her.
Words like, "epic" and "you amaze me" sum up how I feel about her. I wanted the page to be bright and bold, just like her personality.
I was honest in my journaling. I missed out on a lot. I could have had many more adventures in life if I was more brave. Funny how I am raising a daughter who has one of the qualities I admire most.
