“It’s not all bad. Heightened self-consciousness, apartness, an inability to join in, physical shame and self-loathing—they are not all bad. Those devils have been my angels. Without them I would never have disappeared into language, literature, the mind, laughter and all the mad intensities that made and unmade me.”
I find there are people who inspire me. Many of them are off beat, perhaps seen as giants in their world, or maybe considered a touch outside the lines. Or WAY outside the lines. But that is what I admire. Brave and bold people unafraid to be themselves. I strive to be as excellent as I can be, at being myself. I encourage you then to ping back, write back, comment back. It’s all about being brave this week, this month, this year. Maybe for an hour or a minute be brave!
You are welcome to reblog, repost, or respond to this challenge. I don’t care the length of your brave, no word limits. No limits. Be yourself. Your awesome self. It can be a word, a poem, or a full length long read. I look forward to hearing from the blogosphere and here’s to an amazing September here at A Girl Named Bee and all of us on WordPress!

“Comfort eating or pure greed? Most likely a mixture of both. Pieces of cake or biscuits or chocolate could instantly sweeten the sourness of my life. If you have been called gay all day in the playground, a cake when you returned home from school offered some consolation. A fairy cake of course.”
Perhaps I am moving on from learning about the comma, and learning about humanity.
