Journey to Brave is a daily devotional book that brings the reader uplifting messages of hope, love, inspiration, enlightenment, and positivity. This motivational book can play an essential role in helping you, rise above the daily negativity. Each day you will interact with an Indigenous quote, a lesson, and an affirmation to become more positive and develop more confidence.
How you choose to nurture yourself is a personal choice. Some of us routinely pray, meditate, exercise, listen to music or do a number of activities to nurture ourselves. While spending 10-20 minutes with your eyes closed and your brain paused may seem unproductive, this state of quietness allows you to stay calm and focused so you can be very productive. Having a routine for nurturing your mind and spirit each day lets you feed energy to your soul and can serve you well if your life suddenly takes an unexpected turn into a difficult period. This kind of daily practice grounds your spirit and your body so that you stay rooted in yourself. This book is a personal commitment to challenging yourself, finding your center, staying grounded, and connecting with the things that bring you peace and hope. Throughout my life, I have felt like a square trying to fit into a triangle. With recent life changes, I have been using the art of meditation and affirmations to ease my spirit. And while I would never consider myself someone that has mastered any skills of silence, stillness, or being deeply reflective I have found a root deep within the soil of my soul that feels real, calm, and constantly seeking peaceful moments when they reveal themselves. I find myself so fortunate to be able to give myself at least 10-20 minutes in the morning and 20-50 minutes before I go to sleep to practice meditation using meditation apps I have found online. This guidance has become not only a part of my bedtime routine but I find that I sleep more soundly throughout the night if I give myself this quiet time. During my day, I pray, journal, speak affirmations, and research on making a better version of myself. I know that I am a work in progress and will forever be. As you take this journey for yourself, I hope you will experience your "aha" moments. It is my hope and intention that as you embark on this exploration, you will begin to find your own answers -- that you will become self-reflective, make conscious decisions, and learn to trust your intuition. I hope you can trust the next chapter of your life with this book because you are the author
