Several years ago, I took a leap of faith and invested in myself. By this, I mean that I got up the courage and the funds to participate in Soul Restoration as taught by Melody Ross and the Brave Girls Club. http://bravegirlsclub.com/soul-restoration It was one of the best things I have ever done.
Try as I might, I don’t remember how I stumbled on Brave Girls, or how I heard about Soul Restoration. It doesn’t really matter. What matters is that I said, “YES!” I stepped out in faith and was rewarded with a new view of myself and the world at large.
To this day, I carry with me the lessons I learned and the joy that I found on that journey.
My series of birdies grew out of that period of self-discovery. As near and dear to me as the wings of my own heart, these birdies exemplify the Truth, the Freedom, the Diversity and the Courage that Brave Girls instilled in me.
It is no wonder then, that I continue to share my fine feathered creations with the Brave Girls Club. Each new birdie I create is submitted faithfully for inclusion in the Brave Girls Daily Truth emails. These uplifting and encouraging emails are delivered daily to subscribers. They support and uphold the Brave Girls teachings, providing little bits of inspiration and reminders of the fundamental truths we tend to forget.
My birdies have become, by extension, a symbol of those truths. I am extremely grateful to Kathy Wilkins and the rest of the Brave Girls team for their support and encouragement. Just yesterday, I received an email letting me know that another of my birdies was to appear in that evening’s Daily Truth. Within, Kathy extended a compliment to me and it touched me deeply. It reminded me that we all crave validation and approval. Sometimes we actually get it.
Gratitude is a beautiful thing. It grows wings of its own and spreads like the fire of a phoenix, sharing messages of renewal and rebirth.
In that spirit, I encourage you to check out the Brave Girls Club. http://bravegirlsclub.com/ Sign up for their Daily Truth emails. http://bravegirlsclub.com/subscribe-receive-daily-truth-little-bird-told-emails (Little Butterfly is a similar email subscription for girls and teens.)

Happy Trash to you, until we meet again!
