The Tapestry Project & The 30 Brave Days

In the beginning of 2014, I was trying to come up with a New Years Resolution - like everyone else. But I couldn't think of any, so I asked God what to do. He only told me one thing: be brave. I gladly accepted it since it wasn't a long list - unlike the New Years Resolutions I've come up with over the past few years. It was just one thing. I thought, how hard could it be? I have been slacking off life and drifting from God recently. I can list down endless excuses. But I know that if I want something to change, I have to change something. And once again, I was reminded of that one thing God has asked of me this year through two lovely ladies.

First, I was invited to join The Tapestry Project by a very dear friend of mine. The Tapestry Project is about journaling as a spiritual discipline - a place where you can meet God through writing about yourself, about life, about different things.

I have always been afraid of people getting in my head, knowing what I know, affecting how I think or feel. When I was younger, I thought if I didn't care enough about what people say or think about me, maybe I won't be afraid.. maybe I won't get hurt. As I grew older, I realized I've put up a wall. I kept myself from people. I was so selfish. And now, I don't have that many friends.
I was never good at journaling. When blogging became viral, I decided to try it. But I kept deleting my posts because I didn't want people to read it. I've said it before, I'll say it again - It scares me to put myself out there for people to judge. I dislike being criticized because I don't take it very well. When I started this blog, I had my hopes to just keep journaling despite my fears.

The Tapestry Project came at just about the right time. There is different journal prompts each day. If you're interested in joining, you can head on over here to find out how.

Secondly, as I was going through the daily dose of blogs I read, I happen to come across one of Wanderrgirl's brilliance. I'm so proud of her, although we've never met. She is a fellow Filipino who does a pretty darn good job at this blogging business. She is multi-talented, empowering and just plain brilliant.

She recently have come up with a challenge: The 30 Brave Days.
“While it’s easy to find reasons to be happy for #100happydays, I’m joining the dare to do one brave thing everyday for 30 days. I want to make courage my habit. #30bravedays on”
