Heads or Tails *Brave*

Heads Or Tails

If you click on the graphic above, it will take you to the awesome HoT blog where you can sign up and start participating in this fun and popular meme!

Well, for this week's Heads or Tails, we are supposed write about a time when we felt brave or showed bravery.

Some people may be expecting me to write about the tornado again. However, that, in my opinion, had nothing to do with bravery. I didn't do anything brave in that situation. Huddling on a floor and praying has nothing to do with bravery.

So... I had to think long and hard on this one. "My gosh," I thought to myself, "you mean I've NEVER been brave?!?!" I really started feeling like a big, wimpy failure. For real.

So, I told Hubs my dilemma, and he didn't even hesitate in saying, "When you moved 800 miles away from your family and friends, came out here where you didn't know anyone and didn't have a job, and never hesitated to do what needed to be done."

"You think that was brave?" I asked. "I just did what I did for my husband and our marriage." I continued.

Hubs insisted it was brave, while I stared at him in shock. To be honest, I never thought of moving out here as brave, and I would have never, ever thought that he considered it as that. Hey, I'm just being honest here.

So, that's my post of bravery. When I didn't consider myself as such, apparently others did.



That was VERY brave.

It's a bit freaky because my post is almost the same as yours. Mind reader! :P


I agree with your husband. Taking that leap of faith was extremely brave. Happy HoT day!

Bravery isn't just about grand gestures, it's about taking risks and making decisions that others would quake at. I'd agree with your husband too, it is a brave move to leave everything familar behind you and set about making a new life.


This is the thing. True bravery is often not seen as such by those being brave. But it is.

I would agree with your husband. Each and every action in our lives takes a bit of bravery.


That's a very brave thing to do. I must have been a little bit scary, to leave your family behind...

I'm strying to start a new meme, it's called 'Photofun', come and take a look at

Have a nice day !

Extremely brave to step outside your "comfort zone" - especially 800 miles!


I haven't posted a HOT this week because I can't think of anything brave I've done. I guess I should've asked someone...

Tuesday isn't over - I might figure it out yet.


That was being brave! I am often reminded of how brave the pioneers were. To move away from family is the same. Yes, you were brave.

Trust me....Moves definately require bravery...been there, done that...and it kind of sucks for a while. You were brave...


It was brave and I hope you realize that now!



Dude you are very brave! I don't know I could have done that. Love ya lots BBFF!


It takes a lot of courage to leave family and friends and start a new life somewhere else. Bravery is in everyone. Circumstances bring it out.


I should have come here first before doing my HOTS. I was on the same thought... So... I had to think long and hard on this one. "My gosh," I thought to myself, "you mean I've NEVER been brave?!?!" I really started feeling like a big, wimpy failure. For real. BUT, I didn't come here first... never thought of any of the moves I've had being brave. But I agree with your hubby... does he has a brother? lol


For someone like yourself that has a very close family that is brave. I couldn't think of anything I had been brave about, I am an abject coward most of the time, so I missed writing on this H or T


What a sweet, sensitive thing for your hubby to say. And I agree. When we moved to Texas, it was one of the scariest things I've ever done. You do have to be brave to totally uproot your life, leave your loved ones behind, & start a new life. You, my dear, are absolutely brave.

And I'm so thankful you & your loved ones survived that tornado. Scary. :(
